Hyundai Unveils Small Pickup Truck Concept Called Creta STC
New Hyundai small pickup truck concept unveiled…
Hyundai arrived at the Sao Paulo Motor Show in Brazil with the Creta STC compact truck concept in tow.
What they have shown us is a blend of the production Creta SUV and a light pickup truck.
The results are as impressive as you might expect.
Hyundai Creta STC
The all-new Creta STC pickup truck concept vehicle measures in at 4.65 meters long, almost a full meter longer than the standard Creta SUV model.
It’s also a little wider at 1.85 meters, and the wheelbase has been extended from 2.59 meters to 2.80 meters.
It rides on 21-inch wheels that are shod in Pirelli 295/40 R21 Scorpion Zero tires, which adds a little bit of a sporty touch to the Creta STC.
The Hyundai design team in Korea wanted to create a small pickup truck that was inspired by the needs of the average Brazilian driver, which was why they partnered with Hyundai Motor Brazil in the development of the Creta STC.
They came up with the idea of a unibody pickup truck that would appeal to younger drivers in large urban and developing markets, with sporty utility being the focus.
Hyundai small pickup truck concept design
Much like the Hyundai Santa Cruz truck concept that was first shown off in Detroit last year, the Hyundai Creta STC shows off the latest carmaker’s design cues.
These include a more prominent front signature grille, LED headlights, and a chiseled front fascia.
There is a ton of space to be found inside the double cab design, and the use of reverse opening rear doors make getting in and out very easy.
There are some very cool additions to the ergonomic bed, and they include power outlets, storage compartments, and a set of speakers.
There is no mention of the load capacity of the Creta STC, but we would imagine that it would be somewhere in the region of what the Fiat Toro pickup truxk delivers, which is close to 1,500 pounds.
Hyundai small pickup release date
There are no plans to turn the Creta STC small pickup truck into a production model at this point, however that may change in the future.
