From family sedans to electric vehicles to off-road friendly SUVs and farm trucks, the Texas used vehicle market could not be more diverse. December is widely regarded as the best time to buy a new car. Before you're ready to unload your current model, take a look at what used vehicles San Antonio area buyers were keenest to purchase in 2019.

AutomotiveMap has partnered with Autolist.com to share this data. To come up with the results, Autolist looked at more than 4 million used vehicles that left the Autolist marketplace from April to September 2019 (six months). Only vehicles from the 2015 to 2018 model years were included due to the high concentration of the used market found in that timeframe. Vehicles with fewer than 100 miles on them were excluded from the analysis, as well as low-volume specialty models.

The results for the San Antonio data set include the fastest-selling vehicles in the San Antonio-New Braunfels, Texas area.

The 2022 Subaru Outback Wilderness is one of the Hyundai Santa Cruz's biggest rivals..

The 2022 Hyundai Santa Cruz faces stiff competition from many vehicles that are already on the market and a few that are coming down the road. Part of figuring out what its biggest competition is, is figuring out exactly what type of vehicle it is.

Once you've done that, the deciphering gets a bit easier, but it isn't apple to apples. There's really no truck quite like it on the market today.

Subaru Outback

The utility of the rear space afforded by a wagon like the Subaru Outback isn't anything to sniff at. Make the cargo area a bed and you'll see why nostalgia plays long and hard for the Subaru Baja. The Outback and the Santa Cruz share many similar technologies, including all-wheel drive, but the Outback has something the Santa Cruz does not, a passionate built-in fan base.

Getting to the trailhead, then taking your car with you is something that the Ford Bronco Sport excels at. The surprisingly capable compact SUV delivers the capability adventurers are looking for, innovations overlanders love, and smooth ride over rough pavement.

Nissan Pathfinder

The freshly redesigned Nissan Pathfinder was meant to be more rugged. It also has three rows of seating (to the Santa Cruz's two) and seats eight, something you usually only find in full-size SUVs. Nissan has changed out the CVT for a nine-speed automatic transmission in this new generation, upping the appeal of the already-popular midsize family hauler.

Honda Ridgeline

The Honda Ridgeline shares most of its interior with the Pilot but has unique tech like an in-bed speaker system. It's trunk was no doubt an inspiration for Hyundai designers. What makes the Honda so sellable is its available all-wheel drive and overall comfort - two things that the Santa Cruz has as well.

Subaru Crosstrek

With its two engine options, standard all-wheel drive, and gobs of cargo space, the Subaru Crosstrek is primed for use in settings urban, suburban, and beyond. It's easily modified for more rugged endeavors with popular enhancements including a lift, knobby tires, a roof rack, and a brush guard. Subaru doesn't make a Wilderness version of the Crosstrek yet, but it's safe to assume that one is coming.

Ford Maverick

What is the Ford Maverick? Well, officially we're still in wait-and-see mode, but there's one thing for sure, Ford views the Santa Cruz as Maverick competition if for no other reason than it's a compact pickup truck.

While these five vehicles are some of the most obvious competitors, a solid list of aftermarket accessories could easily make the Santa Cruz even more competitive.

Hyundai has let it be known that they'd be into developing a more rugged version of the Santa Cruz if demand is there. What could that include? Take a look at what is on the Subaru Outback Wilderness for a good example of what upgraded off-road capability could look like. There's also some chatter about making an "N" version of the truck.

The Nissan GT-R NISMO Special Edition arrives in the U.S. later this year

The Nissan GT-R might not be the fastest, sleekest, most modern, or sexiest car on the market today but that doesn't mean that you shouldn't love it. No matter how much you love the car, there's no amount of love that will make the GT-R a spring chicken. To make the the car more appealing to the masses, a new special edition model will be offered later this year in limited quantities.

The GT-R NISMO Special Edition wears a NISMO-exclusive Stealth Gray exterior paint job. It rides on exclusive 20-inch RAYS forged aluminum-alloy wheels that are highlighted by red accents. At its front is a unique clear-coated carbon fiber hood that shows off the intricate carbon fiber weave.

On this Special Edition, for the first time, the GT-R wears Nissan's new logo. It adorns the trunk lid and wheel center caps.

A limited number of the new model will be available to North America customers this autumn.

The car keeps the GT-R NISMO's twin-turbo 3.8-liter V6 engine that produces 600 horsepower and 481 pound-feet of torque. It utilizes high-precision, weight-balanced parts for the piston rings, connecting rods, crankshaft, and valve gear components dialed in with tighter tolerances, delivering snappier engine revs and quicker turbo spooling.

Each engine is hand-assembled from the beginning to end in a special clean room by master technicians known as takumi. Each of these technicians places a special aluminum certification plate in a Special Edition-exclusive color on the front of each engine.

Pricing for the GT-R NISMO Special Edition will be announced at a later date. The traditional GT-R starts around $210,000 so expect this one to be priced higher than that.
