The Hyundai Tucson (known as ix35 on some markets) it`s a new breathtaking vehicle. It is 10 cm larger than the Nissan Qashqai (Roque) and Ford Escape, which means more space for more passengers. The design is incredible, stable and secure from the inside and dashing from the outside.

The suspension is smooth so it provides secure long trips.
