The first gen Hyundai Tucson. It is built here and offers a flex-fuel engine, it is also the cheapest armored SUV you can buy.

We also get the new one ( the weirdly named IX35) but for some reason Hyundai still has a market for this ancient beasts, I’m guessing middle-class families (Brazilian middle-class, not US middle-class mind you) buying their first SUV and Upper-class families buying one for their driver.

Updates are minimal over the 2005 model, some facelifting here and there, new seats, a shitty infotainment system and the 2.0 flex-fuel engine.
