The 2014 Hyundai Tucson ix is developed for Korea

Carmaker Hyundai has tried different strategies and now it seems that a new one appeared. With the redesign of the Tucson ix developed for the South Korean market in comparison to the European version of the compact SUV called ix35, the carmaker has followed a different path. The model we have last mention was also revealed with a facelift at the 2013 edition of the Geneva Motor Show a few months ago, in March. In case you do not know yet, the ix35 developed for the European market has the same re-trimmed grille as the pre-facelift model. This is actually similar to the one used on the current North American Tucson. The variant developed for the South Korean market has some new elements like, for example, a flashier nosepiece with chromed slats. If these seem familiar, well they are as were inspired by the new Santa Fe series. the look of the front of the model did not come as a surprise actually as we had the opportunity to see it on the ix35 Fuel Cell production car last year in September.



In terms of cosmetic updates, both the European version and the Korean one have received almost the same elements. Here we have to mention a new set of headlamps with LED daytime running lights, new alloy wheel designs, redesigned front bumper that comes with fog lights that have been re-shaped. The list continues with revised LED-equipped tail lamps and new alloy wheel designs. According to the carmaker, the materials have also been improved inside and the engineers have also added a new FLEX STEER driving system. This nee feature allows drivers to choose from Normal, Comfort and Sport models. Under the hood, the Hyundai ix comes with 2.0-liter GDI capable of generating 164 horsepower. The Koreans have the possibility to select a 2.0-liter turbo diesel unit as well, for their cars. Source: carscoops
