Just one photo of Hyundai’s IX35 concept vehicle, the ix-onic, has surfaced ahead of the SUV’s unveiling at the Geneva Auto Show in March. This stylish looking compact crossover, originally coded as the HED-6, is the official concept car for the next generation Hyundai Tucson and will inspire all new Hyundai SUV designs, including the Santa Fe and Veracruz.

Until now the only images of the ix35 available were the rather abstract sketches Hyundai released almost a month ago.

The ix-onic IX35 Concept was created at Hyundai European Design in Rüsselsheim, Germany, under the leadership of Hyundai Europe’s Chief Designer Thomas Burkle.

Power will come from a direct-injection 1.6-liter engine that makes an impressive 175hp.
