The second generation of the Hyundai Tucson (also called as Tucson ix in his local market and ix35 in Europe) has been scooped again in Death Valley, California.

[ads id=”0″ style=”float:left;padding:9px;”]The ix35 was launched in 2009 as a replacement for the Tucson in Europe, and was received a light facelift (just new headlights with Day-Time Running LED lights and taillights, upgraded NVH and better interior quality) last year while the all-new model is expected to come out at the of 2015 as a 2016MY. We don’t expect a lot of changes in terms of design, will include latest Hyundai design way “Fluidic Sculpture 2.0” we saw on the latest Genesis Sedan and next-gen Sonata.

Engine line-up will the same than the current model, maybe we will found new small gasoline Turbo engines like the 1.2 T-GDi, announced long time ago and used in ix35 rivals like new generation Nissan Qasqhai. Current ix35 FCEV has an estimated range of 369 miles (594 km) and does 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) in 12.5 seconds before topping out at 99 mph (160 km/h). These figures will likely be improved for the second-gen model thanks to last Hyundai Hydrogen powertrain revealed at Geneva Motor Show with the Intrado.

In the pictures you can see a new front grille that looks like the latest Hyundai models, and the rear tailights of the new Tucson.

    Not sure what to make of it at this point. The headlight cluster seems odd to say the least. I feel the length and side profile is very reminiscent of the Mazda CX-5. Not sure if that’s what they were going for. Overall, doesn’t seem as coherent as the current generation of Tuscon.

        Vastly Different. The New Gen will have a longer hood and looks to have a higher belt line than the current.
