Feb. 3, 2015 – Hyundai Motor has today unveiled its first hints about the design of the upcoming All-New Tucson, compact SUV, which will premiere at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show, on 3rd March.

Commenting on the All-New Tucson, 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.”

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 2000s, Hyundai has established its credibility in the SUV segment.

The public world premiere of the All-New Tucson will take place during Hyundai’s press conference at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show, Hall1 on March 3rd, 2015.
