Best featureThe Hyundai ix35 is a completely new model for the company. The design is very modern, it is of very high-quality on the inside and, considering the price, it provides loads of equipment. I wanted an SUV, but only because of its high-sitting position and more comfort on bad roads. I really didn’t need an off-roader, so I didn’t buy a 4x4, but a front-wheel-drive one. The ix35 fits the picture perfectly. It is large enough, but not huge and there is enough room at the front and back, while the boot space was the most pleasant surprise. The car is pretty big, but 728l of boot volume is really a lot. The engine in my car is a 2l, 4-cylinder petrol unit with 163 hp. It gives the car the top speed of about 180 km/h and the acceleration to 100 km/h in just more than 10 seconds. This is not extremely fast, but it’s more than enough for a car that weighs more than 1,400 kg. The fuel efficiency is ok, with about 12l/100km in the city and about 9l/100km on the highway. The diesels are said to be a lot more fuel efficient, but I simply prefer petrol engines. On the inside, the materials are just perfect. They seem to be of very high quality, especially considering the price of the car. I also have air conditioning, front and rear electric windows, Hillstart Assist Control, satellite navigation, leather seats and Bluetooth connectivity. The Hyundai ix35 is definitely a car that is perfect for me. I got the SUV features I was after, I got nice fuel efficiency, safety that SUVs bring inevitably, I got comfort and loads of space on the inside, sleek looks on the outside and surprisingly plush materials in the cabin.
I think that 6th gear would be perfect for highway cruising. Since I don’t have it, at high speeds, the engine is a lot noisier.
I was surprised to see that the rear seats don’t fold down completely flat. The boot space is vast, but this was a bit of a disappointment.
Steering wheel is a bit light, which means that it is good for parking and city driving, but that it also lacks feel and makes even the car of this size seem very light.
