Hyundai has recently announced its plans to introduce a facelifted version of the ix35 in Geneva.
The South Korean based automaker Hyundai is planning to attract more customers into its small crossover, the ix35, and what better way of doing so than by updating its looks. According to the car manufacturer, the Hyundai ix35 will receive a facelift and the “new” model will be officially presented to the public during the 2013 Geneva Motor Show, next week. The facelifted Hyundai ix35 will get LED lights in the front bumper, redesigned taillights and some other minor tweaks, like the new wheels.
Besides its looks, the Hyundai ix35 facelift will also get a new engine, which will make its way under the hood of the model with a 2.0 liter displacement. The new unit will be a petrol burner with direct injection, which will replace the current 2.0 liter Theta-II. A diesel R with LP-EGR will also become available for the facelifted ix35. The driver in the updated crossover will be able to select between three driving modes, Normal, Comfort and Sport. The upgrades will stop with the new touch screen, the new bi-xenon headlights and the new materials. More details on the model will be announced in Geneva.
