The Hyundai team is getting set to welcome customers old and new to be among the first in the UK to view the new Hyundai Tucson.

The very first models have just arrived at the South Hykeham showroom, in time for a special preview for fortunate would-be car buyers ahead of theTucson’s official launch. Hyundai’s latest SUV has been eagerly anticipated as it represents a significant leap forward for the Hyundai brand.

Tony Whitehorn, president and CEO, Hyundai Motor UK, commented: “The Tucson compact SUV is set to change perceptions of the Hyundai brand in the UK and across Europe. With its bold, striking design, and a new level of comfort and an extensive use of technology – it’s a great leap forward.”

The SUV market is of huge importance to Hyundai, with over 130,000 SUVs sold since the company first launched the Santa Fe in 2001. The Tucson replaces ix35 as the outgoing model, which is Hyundai’s second best-seller in the UK so far this year – which just proves how critical this sector is for the brand.
