Hyundai Tucson in the Philippines

We drove this electric-blue Hyundai Tucson in the mountains of Laguna for a day trip. Our destination--the Philippine High School for the Arts in Los Baños--was just as serene as the compact SUV's turbodiesel engine.

"The turbodiesel is quiet and produces no audible rattling at idle," wrote Jason Ang in our June 2015 issue. "Hyundai has never been subtle in its styling, but the latest generation has gained something else--elegance."

Packing 184hp and 402Nm, the all-new Tucson shares the cover of our June 2015 issue with the i20 Cross Sport. Get to know the Korean carmaker's new vehicles by grabbing a copy of our magazine (or by downloading the digital edition).
