2015 HYUNDAI IX35 SPIED

Hyundai’s next-generation ix35 has been spied testing again this week, ahead of what will likely be a late 2014 or early 2015 unveiling.

Still known in some markets as the Tuscon, the current ix35 made its Australian debut in early 2010 as one of the first models to wear the brand’s new ‘Fluidic Sculpture’ styling.

This new third-generation ix35 will follow the larger Santa Fe and the new Sonata into the next evolution of Hyundai’s design language, taking on a sharper and more upmarket look.

These latest shots see the new SUV drop a layer of camouflage, offering a more revealing look at its all-new styling.

And, for the first time, we now have a clear view of the new ix35's tail-lights.

Camouflage continues to obscure the finer details, although it is clear that we can expect a large upright grille and sharp new headlights, both drawn from the latest Hyundai models.

The profile again reveals a long and raked belt line, and a strong character line can be seen through the doors and guards.

The new ix35's high-set tail-lights can now be seen clearly, revealing a slender and arrow-like design with an all-red lense design.

Expect to see the new ix35 later this year or early next, debuting internationally with a range of petrol and diesel engines, and possibly Hyundai’s new 10-speed auto.

In Australia, the current ix35 remains a top seller for Hyundai, with 1447 of the SUVs rolling out of showrooms in August.

Year to date, Hyundai has sold 11,953 ix35s in Australia, falling shy of the 12,713 figure achieved for the same period in 2013.

The ix35 is also the best-selling 'small' SUV in Australia, far outstripping sales of its nearest rivals the Subaru XV (7638 year-to-date) and the Nissan Dualis/Qashqai (7558 combined).
