released the first undisguised images of its new ix35, an all-new
C-segment crossover that showcases Hyundai’s distinctive new ‘fluidic
sculpture’ design language. The ix35 replaces the popular Tucson – one
of Europe’s best-selling SUVs – and will make its world debut at the
Frankfurt Motor Show next month.
Design cues seen
on ix35 will be carried over to other new Hyundai models, most notably
the pronounced hexagonal grille which will become a recognisable family
The ix35 also has
a smaller footprint than C-segment hatchbacks and MPVs, meaning it will
also appeal to buyers who are seeking a more stylish alternative to
styling contributes to enhanced aerodynamics. This, combined with more
refined powertrain technology, enables ix35 to deliver markedly better
fuel efficiency and lower CO2 emissions than rival SUVs and
compete head on in terms of running costs with mainstream hatchbacks.
