While we won’t get to see the 2010 Hyundai Tucson until the 2009 LA Auto Show later this year, Europeans get to see their version of the compact SUV in Frankfurt with the debut of the 2010 Hyundai ix35.
Europeans will be offered a new 184-hp 2.0 diesel option along with a 166-hp Theta-II gasoline model. The U.S. market will only get the gasoline model, which gets an estimated 28 mpg.
