Have a watch:

The pandemic has certainly reinvented the role the automobile plays in our daily lives. Our family vehicles no longer only provide a means of transportation, but have been transformed into a community on wheels. They play host to pandemic-era activities like drive-in movies and concerts; they’re, also an integral part of the road trip vacation yet still meet regular utility needs like moving furniture and home improvement. The coming years call for a vehicle in a category all its own that is equally at home in urban and adventure-focused environments.

Here's a look at the highly anticipated Santa Cruz Sport Adventure Vehicle from Hyundai.
