Hyundai, one of the strongest selling foreign auto brands in Iran, has announced the sale of the latest 2016 Tucson model (ix35) have begun in the country.

The new car, which is gradually arriving from the Far East, has been pegged at 1.65 billion rials or $47,000 at the market exchange rate, according to listings.

On Saturday, Hyundai released the first details about its next-generation Tucson ahead of the crossover’s official debut at the Geneva Motor Show on March 3, 2015. This model will use the Tucson name in all markets where it is sold as the dual use of name confuses buyers.

Tucson stands out from these rivals thanks to its distinctive styling: The large front grille and sharp lines won’t be to everybody’s taste, but they will make you stand out from the rest of the midsized SUV crowd.

Iran’s dealers will be receiving the 2.0 variety, which is not available in European markets that prefer smaller gasoline and diesel engines due to heavy taxes on emissions.

The SE’s 164-hp 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine and six-speed conventional automatic may seem to represent a big step down from every other Tucson’s more modern 175-hp turbocharged 1.6-liter and seven-speed dual-clutch transmission.

However, Car & Driver found that not to be the case in their real-world impressions. The 2.0-liter gives up 1 mpg to the non-Eco 1.6L four’s US EPA combined fuel-economy figure with front-wheel drive and 3 mpg on all-wheel-drive versions, according to the car enthusiast website.
