Will we see an N line package for the Santa Cruz?

Hyundai seems to be quickly expanding upon their number of N line models, with the Santa Fe expecting to join the lineup next. Would you guys be interesting in a sport appearance package for the Santa Cruz? I do not believe these new versions come with any updates to the powertrain.

Would depend on the kind of premium that Hyundai decides to charge for it. That money could probably be better spent on additional equipment and options. Would make sense for them to prepackage it with the higher trim levels.

Hyundai is better off focusing on creating an off-road brand like what Toyota did with TRD-Pro, it was a spin off of the TRD brand but used in a way that worked perfectly to all off-road applications.
Some of those older hyundai off road concepts might provide hints as to what this will be.

I think we should hold off and see what the production model brings before we start discussing new trim levels and variants. The concept didn't really give us many details in terms of the capability of the Santa Cruz but a low entry base price, leaves plenty of room for expansion.

To me its fair considering that offering more of the same these days just isn't a winning strategy.
Ford has done it but will be coming back in 1-2 years with a serious successor. Nissan has taken awfully long with the new Frontier and Toyota too.
That to me says a lot about how important it is to be different, great grounds for discussion here.

I didn't expect that we would be seeing these kinds of trim levels for their crossovers as well. There have already been some teaser images of the Tuscon N Line, so who knows what other segments we will see these pop up in. What is most important about these new equipment packages is that it will mean a new line of aftermarket parts.

The N line models are just a styling package, as opposed to the performance focused N variants. You are right about the lack of aftermarket support on most Hyundai's though, so its good to finally see that may be changing with their new products.

The Elanta GT has been getting a lot more support recently and the Genesis Coupe saw a wide array of aftermarket parts and tunes. With performance pickups and crossovers growing in popularity, its a market that Hyundai will want to get a piece of.

I think we'll be seeing a unique range of support for the Santa Cruz compared to other pickups.
It seems to target a younger customer base that won't care for typical pickup parts, instead it might be whatever suits their active lifestyle.
