Hyundai Tucson 2012/ ix35 Launch In India In January 2012 At Auto Expo 2012?

Hyundai has been very aggressive over the past few months and the aggression is supposed to maintain its pace in the coming time as well. It all started with the Hyundai i10 facelift, followed by the Hyundai Verna Fluidic, then Hyundai Santa Fe and the very recent Hyundai Eon.

In the meantime other car models like Hyundai Avante, facelifted Hyundai i20 and Hyundai i45 were spotted around the country and generated enough curiosity. Raising the level of curiosity to another level is the spotting of Hyundai ix35 crossover.

Also known as Hyundai Tucson, the SUV never tasted success in the country but the latest generation Tucson with fluidic design language is sure to get some attention.

In all hope Hyundai ix35 is expected to be the next model to be launched here in India. Against its predecessor, the new Tucson/ix35 is definitely better in terms of looks and is a major improvement. Not only looks but in terms of features also, the car manages to impress us.
