The New Hyundai ix35 Debut

The New Hyundai ix35

The New Hyundai ix35

Hyundai will strengthen its position as one of the leading brands in the European crossover sector when it presents an all-new addition to the brand's line-up at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September 2009. The Hyundai ix35 joins the C-segment to replace the successful Tucson. Alongside it will be the significantly-revised Santa Fe, which benefits from a wide range of engineering and cosmetic changes to fine-tune the driving experience and make it even more competitive versus rival 4x4s.

The Hyundai ix35 represents a major step forward for Hyundai. Like the other 'i' models in the range, it has been conceived and engineered in Europe at the company's Frankfurt-based design and technical centres. The newcomer embodies Hyundai's new design language and carries over much of the confident, sweeping styling of the ix-onic concept car which starred at the Geneva Motor Show earlier this year.

The Santa Fe too has styling revisions, but the big news is under the skin, with new powertrain, steering and suspension. Mated to the recently-launched diesel engine, codenamed 'R', these modifications have created a balanced and refined model, well suited to on-road and off-road driving.

Further information about Hyundai ix35 and the new-look Santa Fe will be announced nearer the time of the Show.
