I still love the look of the concept, no doubt. But corporate design language changes a lot in 6 years ... and I think the way they pulled this off was fantastic. I love the look of the '22 Tucson, so the SC sharing most of its look with it is A-OK in my books. But the concept was fantastic.

Was hoping for closer to the Tucson front end myself, with it's softer fender corners in front. But I'm a certified Porschephile, so rounded flowing lines turn me on.

The designers decided to go BOLD with the almost right angle front fenders.

Still like it, but not as sexy IMHO. Much more masculine and truck like though.

Funny, I find it just the opposite, kind of feminine to me. Guess it's all in the eyes of the beholder.

Like you, was into it since seeing the concept at the NY Auto Show, preferred the concept vehicle. My remarks on being "foolish"; no pricing, minimal tech specs, reviews, etc. Yes, to each their own.
Right on... I love to hear all the differnt points of view. I admit the pricing is higher than expected for the SC. It is high. Yea... if you are in for a SC, it does require some compromise in terms of the price. I think a limited should have been around $35k, entry level in the sub $25K range. Best of luck in finding what will work best for you.

You find the Squared off look more feminine or the rounded corners more feminine?

I heard from one of the two dealers that I have a reservation through that my info crossed their desk and that means Hyundai should be calling for order confirmation soon. Who knows.

Is your vehicle on the way?
Nope. According to Chuck and the dealerships, they are seeing nothing coming. The dealership says they expect to get one soo that they can’t sell, just show and test drive but are thinking 60 days is possible for anything else.

Got a call on Wednesday ( 7/ 21) while on the road...didn't sound like a robocall...an actual person, I called back yesterday to ask about interior/exterior colors for Limited model ( reserved a white with grey, info here on the forum sez I could go with Green and grey???) , but all I got was the "too busy to answer your call, please leave your name and number" .....so I guess this is really gonna happen. I'll check in with the dealer in a week or two to see if he can see my reservation and confirm color combos for the Limited.

I've called twice and emailed once over the past week. No response. Reviewed Chuck's list and only sell awd premiums which I selected are headed to CT, 3 hours and two states away.
Only stone blue is std sel model and dealer won't do anything unless they get $2k non refundable.
One CT dealer won't sell out of state. The one that would sell me the SC I want is charging $3k-$5k over MSRP and my local dealer won't do anything until they start to hit the lots.

Frustrated. Oh and I can order one but they said it's not guaranteed and could take a year.

I got a voice message today from my local dealer saying "We have a white Limited AWD for you, come on in!" Turns out it was a Santa Fe, NOT a Santa Cruz. Glad I listened to the message 3 times before actually going down there. I was not amused.

Sure, I suppose it could have been an honest mistake, but my past experiences with car dealerships leads me to be suspect it was simply one of their bait and switch tactics. They don't really care what the customer wants, as long as they can get people on the lot. Really? Do people actually fall for this and actually buy?

Local dealer called yesterday,,,,confirmed what I saw on Chuck's spreadsheet...looks like the factory is building SE/SEL with AWD and few with FWD for the Vegas area...first demos should arrive around Sept 1

most dealers are "not ready" or don't want to go to a "on line" ordering system...sad...it's the future for auto sales....suggest you look for a dealer who has an internet sales specialist, or one person responsible for internet sales leads...I believe what is confusing for most dealers ( it's a NEW thing ( one line sales leads) and a NEW model (SC)) is that the sales lead are coming from the factory/concierge service and not from their own web site ( if they have an active web site, Mr. Dealer it is the 21st century!)

I received that email July 23 and I know my SC is on Chucks list being built already. Also received a call from my sales rep last night asking if I had any new information from my sources. It's nice to know my chosen dealer appears to be making ever effort to find out what is happening and wants to keep me in the loop and up to date, even if they don't have any concrete information to pass on yet.

I'm surprised we don't get more confusion like this since these two models have such similar names.

Quick story here: My wife, being curious, did an online chat with a local dealer yesterday on her lunch break about SC availability. Their first question: what color? second question: new or used? Idiots. Every question she asked after that was replied with "if you give us your contact information" Ummmm NO... just tell us when (if?) a SC is coming in so we can have a look see.
