Hyundai ix35 at Hyundai ix35: Tucson replacement revealed

Hyundai has released the first undisguised images of its new Hyundai ix35, an all-new C-segment crossover that showcases Hyundai’s distinctive new ‘fluidic sculpture’ design language. The Hyundai ix35 replaces the popular Hyundai Tucson – one of Europe’s best-selling SUVs – and will make its world debut at the 2009 Frankfurt Motor Show.

Design cues seen on Hyundai ix35 will be carried over to other new Hyundai models, most notably the pronounced hexagonal grille which will become a recognisable family attribute.

The Hyundai 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 conventional cars.

The sleeker styling contributes to enhanced aerodynamics. This, combined with more refined powertrain technology, enables Hyundai 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.
