The Hyundai brand has been around in North America since 1986 and has been establishing itself as a contender ever since. Like many similar brands on the American market, it has been truly building itself up over the past few years. The American market loves utility vehicles, and as the brand introduced more and more its popularity increased tenfold. Today the lineup includes several traditional cars, crossovers and even the brand’s very first pickup truck. If you’re in the market for a new-to-you vehicle but not necessarily one that’s genuinely new, be sure to browse through the used Hyundai vehicles we have for sale here at Briggs Supercenter in Manhattan, Kansas.
For the first couple of decades that the brand was getting its footing here in the U.S., cars were all that Hyundai produced. It started with the Excel and Sonata, of which the latter is still in production. Today, available cars include the Accent, Elantra and Veloster, plus recently discontinued models like the original trio of Hyundai Ioniq electrified models, the Azera, the Elantra GT and the iconic Genesis models.
Hyundai first entered the utility vehicle game in 2001 with the introduction of the Santa Fe, which was followed in 2005 by the Tucson. Both of these models are still pillars of the brand’s crossover lineup, but they have been joined by the Venue, Kona, Palisade and IONIQ 5. In addition, the Veracruz and Entourage were both one in production but have since been discontinued from the lineup.
The 2022 model year saw the Hyundai brand break ground into another new class of vehicle with the introduction of the Santa Cruz sport utility truck. The Santa Cruz is a very innovative and unique compact pickup truck that is sleek and stylish and focused more on adding a bit of utility than truly competing with the capabilities of larger trucks. It’s a good halfway point between crossovers and light-duty pickup trucks.
