Hyundai unveiled an all-new small-size SUV concept at the 2014 Beijing Auto Show, hinting at a production car to be launched later this year exclusively in the Chinese market. The Hyundai ix25 is basically a downsized Tucson (ix35) designed as a premium crossover.
Spawned by the Fluidic Sculpture 2.0 design philosophy, which in plain English means a large grille and pointy headlights like all other new Hyundai models, the ix25 measures 4.27 meters long, 1.78 meters wide, and 1.63 meters tall. It has a wheelbase of 2.5 meters, which means interior space is only decent.
Pitched as a stylish and practical crossover for the younger generation, Hyundai ix25 is powered by a 2.0 liter Nu engine, details of which are yet to be revealed. It also complements Hyundai’s SUV family, including the ix35, Santa Fe and Grand Santa Fe.
Also at Beijing Auto Show Hyundai unveiled the latest generation of the Genesis sedan with 3.0 GDI and 3.3 GDI engines. The new luxury saloon comes with tons of advanced features, including HTRAC AWD system, Automatic Emergency Braking (AEB), Head-Up Display and smart trunk.
