First look at Hyundai's redesigned compact SUV

Hyundai has released a sketch of the all-new Tucson that is set to make its world debut at the 2015 Geneva International Motor Show in March.

Hyundai President and Chief Design Officer Peter Schreyer said that the all-new Tucson comes with a bold and athletic presence as well as a proud stance.

"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," Schreyer said.

Based on the sketch, the all-new Tucson appears to have a redesigned grill and restyled headlamps. Moreover, the front bumper of Hyundai's compact SUV is fitted with new fog lamps along with a revamped hood, slimmer exterior mirrors and sharper character lines.

Reliable sources have also shared that the new Hyundai Tucson will also make its Philippine debut this year.
