Hyundai Teases All-New Tucson ahead of its World Debut in Geneva [w/Video]

Hyundai will debut an all-new Tucson global crossover at the Geneva Motor Show, with the Korean automaker giving us a first glimpse at the new model via a teaser video.

The new compact SUV will drop the ix35 name in Europe and will return to the Tucson nameplate, which is still used in other markets such as North America.

Hyundai says the new Tucson will feature more athletic appearance, with an “upright silhouette and sleek character line.” As the rendering reveals, the front end will get Hyundai’s chrome-framed hexagonal grille connected to the headlamp clusters, for a more distinct appearance.

Judging from the design sketch alone, the new Tucson appears to look much better than the current model. But then again, most renderings look better than the production cars they preview.

“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,” said Peter Schreyer, President and Chief Design Officer of Hyundai Motor Group.
