Hyundai ix35 is the name of the latest addition to the brand's C-segment line-up. The all-new ix35 will be presented to the public at the Frankfurt Motor Show next month as a substitute for the successful Tucson. This brand-new vehicle is meant to strengthen Hyundai's position as one of the leading brands in the European crossover sector.

The 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.

Along with the all-new ix35, Hyundai will present the significantly-revised Santa Fe which will benefits from a wide range of engineering and cosmetic changes including new powertrain, steering, suspension and the recently-launched diesel engine, codenamed ‘R'.
