Unlike the rest of the world’s manufacturers, Hyundai is keeping its compact crossover under wraps.
The ix25 is scheduled to only make its debut at the Beijing Motor Show in April, but that hasn’t kept a gang of vigilant spy photographers from snapping it during cold weather testing.
Although the car is heavily disguised, we can safely assume that it’ll likely be a miniature ix35. Hyundai made a lot of noise about its fluidic design elements when it was first introduced to the world and we doubt that it’s going to change that recipe anytime soon.
The ix25 will use the same platform as the next-generation i20, which means the two models will likely share engines as well.
We expect an entry-level 1,2-litre petrol and a1,4-litre turbodiesel at the top end of the range.
There has been no word on when we can expect to first see the ix25 in South Africa.
