by Nov 13, 2014All News, Hyundai, Spy Shots5 comments

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 South Korea.

[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.

Alongside these exterior pictures, our latest reports said that the third generation Hyundai Tucson will mount the 1.6 turbo charged gasoline direct injection T-GDi engine fitted with a 7-speed dual clutch transmission (DCT). The new interior design will be inspired by the Santa Fe.

    The powertrain improvements should give the 2016 Tucson more off-the-line power, resulting in much better throttle response and gear ratios. On the other hand, it would be a coup for Hyundai if it could also boost Tucson’s fuel economy which in my opinion is holding it back from leading in this segment.

    Isn’t it time Hyundai led in this segment rather than be known for fudging its MPG ratings? On a side note, whatever happened to Hyundai’s previously well publicized R&D ground breaking suspensions known as Active Geometry Control System or AGCS?? I haven’t read, seen or heard anything more about it after so much noise was made by the company about it?

    I have such high hopes for the next IX35 (and Sportage as well). Current version looks a very feminin with its oddly sized wheels and tall side profile. I hope the new IX35 gets its inspiration from the short wheelbase Santa Fe which is one of the most masculine and mean looking SUVs in the market.

    The interior has the potential to look very premium if the finishes are right. Outside of the odd headlights, I like what I’m seeing thus far. Good Work Hyundai!

    The current Tucson looks so stupid that it is a deal breaker.
    It looks like a pathetic gerbil.
