Hyundai has 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 attribute.
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 conventional cars.
The sleeker styling contributes to enhanced aerodynamics. This, combined with more refined powertrain technology, enables ix35 to deliver markedly better fuel efficiency and lower CO 2 emissions than rival SUVs and compete head on in terms of running costs with mainstream hatchbacks.
More information about ix35 will be made available when the Frankfurt Motor Show opens on September 15th.
