I also don't expect it to be standard, but Hyundai will definitely need to offer one with a robust design for a couple of reasons:

If the extending bed becomes a reality the toneau cover will need to be integrated with the design and extend with the bed.

Yes it is a truck bed, but with a weather tight toneau cover they can also advertise the cargo area as like a large all weather trunk. Most of the negative comments that I've seen about the SC is how useless the bed looks when compared to other truck beds. However if you compare it to a sedan or small CUV, its advantages are much more obvious.


Some people want to be able to wash out their cargo area without having to worry...

Just thought about it but it would be cool if they included RAM Box-like boxes on the bed. Good for quick on the go stuff.

But the real question will be how to position them? Accessible from the outside just like what RAM does or only from the inside like Nissan? From the inside will ensure no break-in's like what RAM owners are experiencing. It's a trade off.

Santa Cruz being part of an active lifestyle having it on the outside can be easily justified.

The inside boxes in the Titan can be broken into easily as well. These things aren't safe which is why you always have to be mindful of what you're leaving in there. Anyone can open these things with a long screwdriver or the right set of simple tools. I'd prefer the outside ones just for the ease of use and being able to utilize all the space in the bed.

I guess when it comes to the sort of active lifestyle it supports, your open to a range of low value things to put in their. If you have Skii's, a snow board, beach gear, expensive golf clubs, whatever.... keep them locked in the bed or cabin, everything else in the boxes.

Overall I wouldn't be too worried once mindful... so what if they take my beer :D

Pretty much ! If they go through the trouble of breaking a window or trying to jimmy the doors or whatever then pfft, they put in enough work and effort, take it LOL

The beer, I would be pretty upset about. They can have the beef jerky that'll be locked in there, but just please... leave the beer :|

Colin, what's going to help you is looking into the segment this will sit in. Once you do that most of your questions will be answered, aside from anything very specific to what Hyundai will do. Vehicles in the same segment almost always are built from the same fundamentals.

Under rear seat storage is a must. Multi layer deep console between the front seats. Wide pockets in the doors (front and rear) Multi functional console with storage galore.

toyota is preparing some change to the Tacoma very soon, it will be wise of Hyundai to pay attention to that, Toyota is big on storage and overall practicality.

We should expect the Santa Cruz to follow interior design consistent with other related models along with things unique to it, truck focused things. What would you guys like those unique things to be?
A couple of un assigned switches would be good for additional light=ting and such

Kind of bummed there will be no Heads Up Display or multiple driver memory for seats or wireless Carplay in the top trim.

multiple driver memory for seats
This would SUCK for me as my wife is very interesting in sharing this vehicle. Given all the tech I just assumed it would have memory seats 😢

Memory seats seem to still be a premium feature that hasn’t trickled down to “normal” cars. I’ve never had them and my wife and I were really hoping our next vehicle would. I’m about 6-foot and she’s a bit over 5, so adjusting the seat between drivers is always a hassle.

To add to my disappointment about the apparent deletion of the memory seats as you go from the Tucson into the SC, if you watch a review of the new Tucson, the spot where they put the buttons for the memory seat function is AWESOME!. I really wish it was included with the SC, but as I scrutinized the interior videos of the SC (pre production models, for the most part, but the videos of the Canadian version are more advanced than the American release as it shows the back "window") there is no mention from anyone about seat memory buttons, and the spot on the SC interior that corresponds to the buttons location in the new Tucson clearly does not have the buttons. Oh well! :eek:

I noticed that as well... in fact I downloaded the owner's manual for the Tucson just to confirm. Given how much the SC and Tucson share why leave this one feature out? I wonder if this is something that will be fixed during a refresh in 2 or 3 years.

This along with the stupid porthole rear window are (so far) my only gripes with what Hyundai has done here. Oh well no vehicle is ever perfect.

Really? I felt the Tacoma had the worst interior of any truck I've been in to date. Very cramped, tons of cheap hard plastic, ghetto vents, no back passenger vents, outdated dash and steering wheel, etc. My ancient Ram is way nicer than a new Tacoma IMO. Toyota would be wise to pay attention to Hyundai! :)

I LOVE the Ram boxes, as I tend to put most of the groceries in them and nothing slides around. Of course another simple solution is you just use those plastic collapsible crates and put your little things in them, and the SC does have that Ridgeline type of brunk or whatever they are calling those. Only disappointment with it is that I was hoping the brunk would be deeper.

What I'd probably do for the brunk is grab a pair of these ultra slim cooler packs and lay them in there: https://www.amazon.com/Cooler-Shock-18-Degree-Innovative-Averaging/dp/B07TN83LMP

Then throw my cold food on top and close the brunk, and being smaller may be better anyway as it'll have less heat loss. Then non-perishables can just go on top in the collapsing baskets that can probably fit for storage in the brunk as well.
