The production Hyundai ix25 remains true to the pre-production concept shown at the Beijing Motor Show.

The production version of the ix25 stays true to the pre-production version unveiled at the Beijing Motor Show only receiving mild modifications to the bumpers and headlights. More importantly, the production version finally shows what the interior of the Duster rival looks like.

The steering wheel design is familiar to that of the Verna, while the instrument console resembles that of the Elite i20. The center stack, comprising of the AC vents and music system, seems inspired by the larger Santa Fe, though certain parts (the controls for the AC for e.g.) are also seen on the Elite i20.
