2016 Hyundai ix35 Unraveled: Spyshots Showcase A Stylish And Practical SUV

March 11, 2014, By Alex Ion

There is a certain sense of adventure and excitement whenever one manages to get an early glimpse of a future car model that is still under the wraps.

The heavy tarp might not be fully off and the final version might bring along with it a few more refined surprises, but the rush one feels when they look at a spyshot of the vehicle is something that every auto lover will admit to. The Hyundai ix35 SUV just got an update in 2013 and many of us are happy with the direction in which Hyundai is headed.

Fresh off of the testing grounds in Sweden though is the new2016 Hyundai ix35 that is all set to be a part of the 2015 launch lineup. And the early sneak-peek is worth taking a closer look at. For starters, one clearly notices the fact that the design changes are not as radical as one might come to expect in an SUV that is slated for a release in 2015-16. Having said that, Hyundai has decided to take the safer and more calculated path of giving the ix35 a modern makeover that is stylish and is more of an evolution of the SUV than a sudden revolution!

The vehicle is larger and seems far more practically inclined than the previous versions.

Borrowing the platform from the new Hyundai i30, which received some rave reviews from the likes of motoring.com.au as a stunning performance car, it is safe to assume that this SUV is also off to a solid start. Its engine options include a 1.6-liter to new turbo GDI unit along with 1.7 and 2.0-liter variants that promise greater fuel economy. With a rear door window that is slightly curved, squatted headlights and a grille that seems to be inspired by the 2015 Genesis sedan, it is safe to assume that there will be a few more substantial tweaks before we see the final version of the 2016 ix35.

Hyundai is obviously more focused on improving and fine-tuning the current model to deliver an SUV that would please all the ix35 fans. With that being said, we will have to wait for a few more detailed spyshots (especially of the interior) before we really place a punt on this vehicle. For now though, things seem to be on the right track!
