Hyundai has revealed an illustration of its latest SUV, which is due to premiere ahead of the Geneva Motor Show. The third-generation Tucson, which will replace the ix35 in certain markets, is due to launch in late 2015.

This first sketch shows the silhouette of an SUV that aims to be both sporty and bold, according to Hyundai design head Peter Schreyer. The performance-focused appearance is enhanced by a hexagonal front grille in chrome, one of the brand's design signatures, which creates an impression of power.

The Hyundai Tucson is due to be unveiled on March 3, just before going on display to the public at the 85th Geneva Motor Show (March 5-15).

Hyundai claims to have sold over one million SUVs in Europe since the start of the 2000s.
