The next-gen Hyundai ix35 / Tucson has made a comeback in a new set of spy pics from United States.

Don't hold your breath for a fresh design for the third generation Tucson (ix35 in Europe) seen in these images as the crossover will probably end up looking like a downsized Santa Fe. There will be a larger front grille with slightly curved horizontal bars flanked by slimmer sweptback headlights (with LED DRLs), a more sloped roofline together with an upward sweeping beltline and new alloy wheel designs. There are some chances of seeing a modest increase in size to make room for the upcoming ix25

Engine lineup will likely be carried over from the current model so expect to find a 1.6 GDi, 1.7 CRDi and 2.0 CRDi for the Euro version and 2.0 & 2.4 GDi units for the US variant, with both being offered with standard FWD or optional AWD. It's unclear at this moment whether Hyundai plans another Fuel Cell derivative.

The 2015 Hyundai ix35 / Tucson will likely be introduced early next year and should go on sale a few months later.
