First official teaser photos of Hyundai iX35

It seems like the days of the Hyundai Tucson are numbered. The South Korean automaker has put no less than four official teaser photos of the iX35 on their website. The Hyundai iX35 is set to replace the Tucson from Hyundai`s range of models. The public debut of the Hyundai iX35 will take place next month during the Frankfurt Auto Show. From the four teaser photos we can see that Hyundai confirms that the name of the next model will be iX35, confirming the speculations. Still, the Tucson nametag will not completely disappear. From what it seems, the Tucson replacement will be named iX35 in Europe and Tucson ix in the South Korea. The nametag for the North American market was not revealed until now.

Unfortunately, the four teaser photos do not show anything regarding the styling of the car, but from what we know from the set of spy shots that has appeared a week or two ago the production version of the Hyundai ix35 will keep quite a lot of the design lines and patterns of the ix-onic concept study that was presented this year at the Geneva Auto Show.

Hyundai has stated that the ix35 represents a major step forward for Hyundai in Europe as it is the firm`s first SUV to be conceived and engineered in Europe at the company`s Frankfurt-based design and technical centre. Also, the South Korean automaker has big expectations from the ix35 SUV, hoping that it will be able to successfully compete with cars like the Volkswagen Tiguan or the Toyota RAV-4.
