2013 Hyundai ix35 is a freshened-up Euro-Tucson

In places that aren't the United States, Hyundai calls its Tucson compact crossover the ix35. And as part of its Geneva Motor Show presence, the Korean automaker has debuted this freshened version of the C-segment CUV, showing some minor tweaks to an otherwise attractive package.

The most noticeable changes are found up front, where a revised grille slots in between newly designed headlamps that now feature LED running lights. Around back, the taillamps have also been given the nip/tuck treatment, and it appears some redesigned wheels have been included in this update, as well.

Hyundai has fitted its ix35 with a new, direct-injected version of its 2.0-liter naturally aspirated four-cylinder engine (with undisclosed power figures, natch). And when it comes time to put that power to the road, driver's will be able to use a new selectable electric power steering system similar to what's on the Elantra GT and Santa Fe Sport, with normal, comfort and sport modes.

We have yet to receive official word about when the US-spec Tucson will receive these changes, but we don't expect them to be too far off. Scroll down for the full press blast with all the goods.Continue reading 2013 Hyundai ix35 is a freshened-up Euro-Tucson2013 Hyundai ix35 is a freshened-up Euro-Tucson originally appeared on Autoblog on Wed, 06 Mar 2013 11:29:00 EST.
