Hyundai’s new Small SUV, the Tucson will debut at next month’s Geneva Motor Show in Switzerland.
A design sketch and video hints at a bold and athletic SUV presence, with the return of the global Tucson badging underlining the significance of the new model. The Tucson will replace the ix35 (New Zealand’s No.1 Small SUV in 2014) Small SUV in New Zealand later in the year.
"Our new Small SUV will be a big step forward for the Hyundai brand globally,” said Peter Schreyer, the President and Chief Design Officer of the Hyundai Motor Group.
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."
The strong, sporty SUV appearance is enhanced by the upright silhouette and sleek character line. At the front, Hyundai's distinctive chrome-framed hexagonal grille is connected to the headlamp clusters creating a powerful impression.
With more than one million SUV sales in Europe since the introduction of the first Santa Fe in the early 2000’s, Hyundai has established its credibility in the SUV segment. The Santa Fe has also been the top selling diesel SUV and diesel passenger vehicle in New Zealand for the last four years.
