Hyundai has plenty of fans in Europe, where the automaker has a lineup of trendy compact cars like the i10 and i20. For a while, the ix35 was being sold in Europe, but this past summer, the SUV was replaced with the latest generation of the Hyundai Tucson.
The new Tucson has already gained popularity in UK and European markets during 2015, as sales of the CUV were much higher than anticipated. In fact, the redesigned Tucson SUV is now the fastest-selling Hyundai model in Europe.
Since September, the Czech plant manufacturing Tucsons has been at full capacity, in addition to using cutting-edge production techniques that keep Tucsons rolling off the assembly lines.
“Launched in September this year, we have taken over 10,000 orders in the UK alone and the best-selling model is the 1.7-litre SE Nav with over 34% of the total number,” Tony Whitehorn, CEO of Hyundai Motor UK.
The Tucson has appealed to consumers—both in Europe and America—for its impressive fuel efficiency, family-oriented layout, and safety scores. Just recently, the Tucson earned a five-star safety rating for its crash impact engineering and proactive features. It’s also known as the Best Compact Crossover according to Ruedas ESPN.
