New Hyundai Tucscon to replace ix35

Set to be debuted at next month’s Geneva Motor Show, the new model (see teaser video here) marks a return to the Tuscon name, which was switched to the ix35 moniker in 2010.

The new model has been designed with a strong, sporty SUV appearance with Hyundai’s distinctive chrome-framed hexagonal grille connected to the headlamp clusters.

Peter Schreyer, president and chief design officer of Hyundai Motor Group, said: ‘Our new compact SUV will be a big step forward for the Hyundai brand globally. The All-New Tucson has a bold and athletic presence and a proud stance. Its design is characterised by flowing surfaces, bold proportions, sharp lines and – most important – our brand signature hexagonal grille.’

Hyundai has sold over one million SUVs in Europe Europe since the introduction of the first Santa Fe in the early 2000s.
