The third generation Hyundai ix35 / Tucson has been photographed during tests in South Korea
The third generation Hyundai ix35 / Tucson has been photographed during tests in South Korea.
This time we have photos of the rear end without camouflage and the interior to share. Judging by the images, the model will get an updated dashboard with new center console and steering wheel, inspired by the current Sonata model. In terms of exterior design, it is expected to follow in the footsteps of the smaller ix25 and the range-topping Santa Fe SUV.
According to previous reports, the compact SUV will be launched in the fall of 2015 with sales likely to begin in late 2015 or early 2016. The 2016 ix35 is expected to carry over the engine lineup of the current model, so a 1.6-liter GDi petrol unit together with two 1.7 CRDi and 2.0 CRDi diesels will be available in Europe. The Tucson for the USA market will likely be offered with 2.0 and 2.4 GDi units. Front-wheel drive will be standard, while the AWD system will be optional.
