2010 Hyundai Tucson ix35 revealed
The first version of the all-new Hyundai Tucson has been revealed for its Korean home market, demonstrating swoopy new styling and a new engine.
Depending on market, the new model will be known as either the Tucson ix, the ix35, or simply as the 2010 Tucson. There also seems to be variations on the front bumper design.
While details are still scarce, the new model will come with a new 166 hp 2.0-litre 4-cylinder engine and a 6-speed automatic, with a choice of front-wheel-drive or all-wheel-drive. Available features in some markets will include a panoramic sunroof, rear camera, downhill brake control, hill-start assist, stability control and even automatic hazard lights for panic stops.
Expected to debut in the UAE, Saudi Arabia and other Middle East countries by the end of the year, some safety features will likely be removed in the GCC version to keep prices low. Keep track of updates and prices in the Hyundai Tucson buyer guide.
