Korean auto maker has uncovered the ix-onic crossover concept in Geneva. Powered by the new 1.6 litre GDi turbocharged 4 cylinder petrol engine that is capable of 170HP, this gorgeous looking concept previews the upcoming Tuscon crossover. Measuring 4,400 mm in length, 1,850 mm in width and 1,650 mm in height, the ix-onic features a front fascia with a hexagonal grille which was inspired by the 2006 Genus concept car and the 2008 i-mode concept car as well as head lights with daytime LED running lights, with more LED lights on the side mirrors.
With 21-inch polished alloy wheels, muscular lines flow from the side profile to the rear end, which is finished with high-mounted tail lamps and a rear window made of Lexan high-performance plastic instead of conventional glass that enabled the designers to give the rear window a much more three-dimensional shape.
The almost production-ready interior is dominated by silky cream-white leather and an X-shaped visual theme with embossed leather, with a cool easy-on-the-eye “ice blue” lighting. The 1.6 GDi engine is mated to a dual clutch 6 speed transmission. The 5-seater all wheel drive concept also comes with the Idle Stop & Go technology which enables the power plant to produce just 149 grams of emissions per kilometer.
