The Hyundai Santa Cruz pickup truck became the fastest-selling vehicle in the United States this August, according to iSeeCars, which calculates how long cars spend from delivery to the dealer.
In the case of Santa Cruz, Hyundai takes an average of eight days to sell a pickup truck, or "adventure sports car," as Hyundai prefers to call it. The company is very pleased with this result, especially since its car turned out to be more expensive than its competitor, the Ford Maverick. The Chevrolet Corvette comes in second with 8.3 days, followed by the Mercedes-Benz GLS-Class with 8.7 days.
Subaru Crosstrek buyers purchase their cars 9 days after their appearance at the dealer, Toyota RAV4 and Sienna wait for their buyers for about 9.5 days. KIA Carnival and Toyota Tacoma are in showrooms for the longest time - 10.8 days.
The basic version of the Hyundai Santa Cruz is equipped with a 2.5-liter naturally aspirated engine producing 193 hp, which works in conjunction with an 8-speed automatic transmission and all-wheel drive. Such a front-wheel-drive car is offered for $ 23,990. Buyers get 18-inch alloy wheels, air conditioning, keyless entry, and a media system with an 8-inch display and six speakers. There is also an automatic high beam system, lane tracking, and lane-keeping.
In the basic version, users have access to an 8-inch screen of the multimedia system with support for Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. In the older version, there are two 10.25-inch displays, a touchscreen control unit for the climate control system, a Bose audio system, and a wide range of electronic driver assistants. But even in the basic version, there is an automatic braking system with a function of recognizing cyclists and pedestrians.
