Hyundai unveils its first hints about the design of the upcoming all-new Tucson compact SUV, which will premiere March 3 at the 2015 Geneva auto show.
“Our new compact SUV will be a big step forward for the Hyundai brand globally,” Peter Schreyer, president and chief design officer-Hyundai Motor Group, says in a statement.
“The all-new Tucson has a bold and athletic presence and a proud stance. Its design is characterized by flowing surfaces, bold proportions, sharp lines and, most important for 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.
Hyundai has established its credibility in the SUV segment with more than 1 million SUV sales in Europe since the introduction of the first Santa Fe in the early 2000s.
