Hyundai Tucson SUV revealed

These are the first official pictures of the Hyundai Tuscon, an SUV promising sharper design and clever technology

This Hyundai Tucson is the replacement for the Hyundai ix35 SUV, and is being revealed here ahead of its public debut at the Geneva Motor Show.

When the car goes on sale in the summer, it will revive the Tucson name, not used in the UK since 2009. Hyundai describes the new car as "another leap forward" and points to the sleeker design and new technology it'll offer.

The car's design is sleeker than before, with a large chrome front grille and LED headlights. The car's overhangs – the bodywork ahead of the front wheels and behind the rears – are shorter, giving it a sportier look.

Inside, there's greater use of soft-touch plastics and the interior has been designed to improve on the ix35's ergonomics. Optional equipment will include ventilated seats, a self-parking system and automatic emergency braking. The Tucson's TomTom sat nav is claimed to operate three times faster than before, too.

The Hyundai Tucson is slightly longer and wider than the ix35, and interior space has increased as a result. Boot capacity grows from 516 to 591 litres – 85 litres more than in a Nissan Qashqai.

The engine range for Europe includes two 1.6-litre petrols and three diesels – although the range for UK buyers is still to be confirmed. These engines include a 113bhp 1.7-litre and two 2.0-litres producing 133bhp and 180bhp. These are available with either a six-speed manual or seven-speed automatic gearbox.
