The grille shape looks the same but is slightly different trimmed and… that's about it. Nothing to see here, move along!
Under the hood, the European model will get a ‘Nu’ 2.0-liter GDI (Gasoline Direct Injection) petrol engine producing 163 PS, which supposedly is more efficient than the 'Theta-II' 2.0-liter unit it replaces.
Inside, the ix35 will have a bigger TFT Supervision cluster and better trim.
Full information about the ix35 will be revealed at the Geneva Motor Show.
