Better fuel efficiency and lower carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions have become staples of new sports utility vehicle (SUV) releases as manufacturers realise that there is no room for compromise on environmental features regardless of the type of vehicle being sold.
Hyundai is the latest to recognise the trend towards eco-conscious car buying with its new ix35. This C-segment crossover vehicle showcases Hyundai’s fluidic sculpture design language and replaces the popular Tucscon, previously one of Europe’s best-selling SUVs.
The Hyundai ix35 will make its world debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show next month and has a smaller footprint than most C-segment hatchbacks and MPVs, so it should appeal to buyers wanting a more stylish alternative to conventional cars.
Its environmental statistics are expected to be boosted by enhanced aerodynamics and a more refined powertrain technology that enables the ix35 to deliver better fuel efficiency and lower CO2 emissions than rival SUVs.
Stay tuned for more details when the car is unveiled at the Frankfurt Motor Show on September 15.
