Hyundai is reviving the Tucson name for its all-new mid-size sport utility vehicle to replace the ix35.

Since the first Santa Fe went on sale in 2001, Hyundai has delivered more than a million SUVs to European customers, with more than 116,600 UK deliveries, affirming the company's credentials in the growing SUV market.

The design team has worked to ensure a sleek, agile look while LED headlamps and daytime running lights and a wing-shaped front bumper emphasise the wide track.

As well as new soft-touch, high-quality materials, the interior has undergone extensive ergonomic testing to ensure ease of use and a pleasant experience.

The Tucson is built on a new platform which features generous interior dimensions. Clever packaging optimises the space for passengers and luggage with a 513-litre boot with the seats up.
