Hyundai has unveiled its first hints about the design of the upcoming all-new Tucson compact SUV, which will make it is official debut at next month’s Geneva motor show.
The new Tucson will replace the current ix35 in Hyundai’s model line-up.
With more than one million SUV sales in Europe since the introduction of the first Santa Fe in the early 2000s, the Korean carmaker says it has established a foothold in the SUV segment.
Commenting on the new design, Hyundai design boss Peter Schreyer 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 also released a teaser video, showing the creation of a first design sketch.
