The second generation of the Hyundai ix35 has been grabbed on camera for the first time by our spy photographers.

The second generation of the Hyundai ix35 has been grabbed on camera for the first time by our spy photographers.

The ix35 came out in 2009 as a replacement for the Tucson and was moderately revised last year while the all-new model is expected to come out in the fall of 2015 as a 2016MY. Don't expect a lot of changes in terms of design since Hyundai will stick to the same recipe and make only modest tweaks.

Engine lineup will probably be carried over but with a few updates to improve fuel economy, along with a fuel cell derivative which Hyundai already has for the current generation model. Today's ix35 Fuel Cell 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 and the price tag could also go down as a result of estimated lower production costs from 2015 onwards.
