These artistic renderings are our first look at the all-new Hyundai Tucson, which will make its global debut at the 2009 Frankfurt motor show in September.
As can be seen, the production Tucson will largely resemble the HED 6 “ix onic” concept shown at the 2009 Geneva motor show. Both vehicles were designed in Hyundai’s European design center in Russelshiem, Germany, under the auspices of head designer Tomas Buerkle. Although we’ve yet to see the finalized product in person, we’re expecting a very fluid, curvaceous vehicle, albeit without some of the fanciful elements typically found on concept cars. Specific details on the new Tucson (called the ix35 in Europe) are presently limited, but we’ll know more closer to its unveiling on September 15.
