[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.
