It seems Hyundai is indeed getting serious about breaking into the pick-up segment, with the company showcasing its second pick-up concept at the 2016 Sao Paulo Auto Show called the Hyundai Creta STC concept.
Based on the company’s Creta B-segment SUV for the Brazilian market, the STC (which stands for Sport Truck Concept) measures 4,65m long, 1.85m wide and 1.63m tall, with a 2.8m wheelbase and a pair of suicide rear doors.
The ute’s tray measures 1.30m long, 1.29m wide and 0.51 high and has a capacity of 850 litres.
Finished in a bright green exterior paint, the concept features Hyundai’s new cascading front grille flanked by a pair of slender LED headlights. To give the car a tougher look, designers have also given the small pick-up front and rear skid plates, visible tow hooks and massive 21-inch wheels.
Hyundai hasn’t revealed any technical details of the small pick-up, but it could likely utilise the Creta’s 1.6-litre and 2.0-litre naturally aspirated petrol engines, along with its 1.4-litre and 1.6-litre turbo-diesel powerplants. All are mated to either a six-speed manual or automatic transmission.
