2022 Hyundai Santa Cruz SEL
My local Fold dealer has a couple on Mavericks on the lot, so I did a side by side with the Santa Cruz....
Nope those are the base mode steelies... that is how it comes from Ford when you don't add any options. There is a reason this vehicle starts under $20k.Yikes, those rims on the Maverick look like they are for the spare "donut" tire. They look absolutely horrible! Have to wonder (hope!) if they're some kind of covering for transport that the dealer will take off????
Steelies = beater or fleet vehicle to me. I guess some people are using them in an ironic hipster way. So much so Ford puts fake ones on the Bronco. Basically this is all about bucking the trend to fit big, flashy, over the top wheels on rugged or utility type vehicles. So I get it - steelies for the win: functionality over style... and for a work truck this make sense but for a personal vehicle is just appears cheap.Ah, steelies have a certain charm to them.
Hey now - Dodge made them so they actually used the lug nuts to hold them on! They were always a bit annoying on our old Journey that way .. trying to line the covers up while trying to get the wheel to stay in place before the first nut was on. Not going to miss that. LOLSteelies are still better then those fake, plastic wheel covers that look like rims - now that is truly sad and screams "cheap". Bonus points for the ones that include fake wheel nuts in the design
Steelies for the XL...it's a $22,000 truck...Yikes, those rims on the Maverick look like they are for the spare "donut" tire. They look absolutely horrible! Have to wonder (hope!) if they're some kind of covering for transport that the dealer will take off????
After a re-watch, nope, those are the rims. Dang! As if it wasn't ugly enough! IMHO of course
That was my wife's reaction too. It looks like they ran out of material when making the door panels. I normally like accent colors, but this looks like an accident!I found the interior to be very cheap/junky looking. The white dash and white door inserts looked like something the dealer should remove after shipping during the prep setup. Just really bad IMO.
After seeing the video, the Mav looks like a Honda Element that was converted to a pickup. IMO when I was looking over vehicles for my next purchase, the only thing that stood out of the Mav over the SC was the Hybrid option.My local Fold dealer has a couple on Mavericks on the lot, so I did a side by side with the Santa Cruz....
