Hyundai will unveil a concept for a new medium SUV at the Geneva auto show next month.
Codenamed HED-6, the concept will preview Hyundai's IX-35 model, which will launch at the end of the year. The IX-35 will replace the Tucson.
Allan Rushforth, Hyundai Motor Europe vice president, said the concept will preview a new look for the carmaker's SUV line-up.
"It fuses a robust exterior with a fresh and elegant interior while its latest-generation powertrain highlights Hyundai's clean-technology expertise," Rushforth said in a statement.
The concept's name comes from Hyundai European Design, which created the car. It is the sixth concept created by Hyundai´s European Chief Designer Thomas Burkle and his team at the carmaker's design center in Rüsselsheim, Germany.
The IX-35 production version of the concept will be built at Kia's factory in Zilina, Slovakia.
Hyundai will use the IX prefix for all its SUVs in future.
The concept's exterior features a hexagonal grille, angular style lines and backswept front headlamps, along by 21-inch alloy wheels. The three-dimensional sculpted shape of the rear window is achieved using high-performance plastics instead of regular glass.
The concept is equipped with LED daytime running lights and powered by a 175hp, 1.6-liter gasoline direct-injection engine.
Hyundai will display two other cars in Geneva.
The three-door version of the new i20 small car will be shown for the first time while an i30 lower-medium car will showcase the first application of stop-start technology in a Hyundai production car.
The i30 in Geneva will have stop-start and a 1.6-liter gasoline engine. It will use 7 percent less fuel than the regular 1.6-liter version and will have CO2 emissions of 142 grams per kilometer, down from 152g/km.
