Concept: Hyundai shows the Tucson successor

Pete Mait

The Tucson successor will certainly turn over a new leaf in the Korean Hyundai marque's design book. The pre-series Hyundai concept car was designed completely at the European Design Centre in Rüsselsheim in Germany, and is targeted at the European market. With its more edgy and sculpted lines, the Tucson successor is to be more heavily pitched against competition in the shape of the BMW X3, Audi Q5 and also the Volvo XC60. The front view is distinguished by headlamps that are retracted far into the body shell, a large radiator grille and particularly by characteristic LED lights which are also featured on the external mirror housings. The compact SUV is driven by a 175HP 1.6l turbocharged petrol engine.
