2021 Hyundai Santa Cruz spied

A prototype of Hyundai Santa Cruz, the company's upcoming car-based ute, has been spied for the first time – but Australian availability has yet to be confirmed. This photo was posted online overnight by Korean website Autospy. It's unclear who took the picture, or where it was taken. Unlike the 2015 concept car (below), which featured large front doors and small reverse-hinged rear doors, the production Santa Cruz will have four standard-size apertures.

Nissan Titan pick-up still a chance for Australia

The Nissan Titan pick-up has been given new hope of coming to Australia, after being ruled in and out for local introduction over the past two years. Nissan Australia boss Steve Lester says the company has not given up on getting the Nissan Titan into local showrooms – and has been buoyed by the success of the Ram 1500, which until recently was only available with petrol V8.
