The first undisguised images of the all-new Hyundai ix35 are already released. The new C-segment crossover showcases the new ‘fluidic sculpture' design language of the Hyundai brand. Like we wrote last week, the ix35 will replace the popular Tucson - one of Europe's best-selling SUVs – and will make its world debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show next month.

According to Hyundai, the all-new ix35 design lines will be carried over to other new models from the brand, and the hexagonal grille will become a recognisable family attribute.

The new Hyundai ix35 combines enhanced aerodynamics, sleeker styling and refined powertrain in order to deliver better fuel efficiency and lower CO2 emissions than rival SUVs.
