Hyundai Tucson 3 (2016) Photo & Video
The new 3rd generation Hyundai Tucson, which predecessor was known under the name “Hyundai ix35”, was first officially presented to public in March 2015 at Geneva Motoг Show, although its pre-premiere took place in Berlin one month prior to the event. The car has surpassed the previous model in all respects – it became bigger, more powerful, prettier and smarter.
