A Hyundai ix25 compact SUV was spotted in South Korea recently. The car is identified as one of the top-end models as it sports projector headlights, LED daytime running lights, alloy wheels, foglights and a triple-slat chrome grille. However, there will be a variant above this with a dual-slat chrome grille called the ix25 Sport.
