So while the ix35 has of those attributes in spades, it brings to the market a much appeal. It extends beyond the to compete against family and compact MPVs just as as it does against small

Obvious key rivals include the RAV4, Ford Kuga, VW and Nissan Qashqai, all of which are beaten by the ix35 on price specification. But other models which the ix35 is set to generate sales – where a customer from one manufacturer to another include the Vauxhall Astra and Ford Focus and C-Max and Auris.

It’s the versatility of the design that is core to its In terms of its overall dimensions, it is no or wider than the average C-§egmènt hatchback, so it will up no more space on your or in the supermarket car park.

Yet despite its dimensions it has the rugged good of an SÚV, complete wîth the of four-wheel-drive and a decent amount of clearance should you occasionally the versatility and traction to match. The layout, wîth its generous space, wide-opening rear and exceptional levels of passenger brings even more – why bother wîth a bulky, MPV when you can choose a more and dynamic model that just as much room?

Sports, holidays and family out will be the core focus of out-of-work activities, and they be lòòking for a car that delivers they need to complement active existence.

The ix35 manages to look stylish and unlike an MPV, yet it offers levels of interior space and stowage, unlike most hatchbacks, and it delivers safe, handling and low running costs, most SÚVs.

Along low running costs, the ix35 also appeal to environmentally customers thanks to systems Intelligent Stop Go. This shuts off and then restarts the in congested city driving reduce fuel consumption and emissions. Also available on models is Hyundai’s Active ECO

As such, the design more than one traditional category, appealing as much to the SÚV buyer for whom the outgoing was so appealing, as it does to those out of more mainstream compact models.

The model introduces a new design for Hyundai – known as fluidic – which means all models ix35 onward will refinement, confidence and dynamic regardless of market sector.

European design team, in Ruesselsheim, Germany, carried the majority of the styling elements in the ix-onic show car, at the 2009 Geneva Motor

These cues include sweeping lines, including an ‘Double Z’ swage on the vehicles flanks. Bold detailing, chunky alloy and a discreet but aerodynamically effective spoiler add to the model’s confident as well as accentuating its convention-challenging profile.

and drivetrains

Two or four-wheel drive, new automatic due late 2010

A car to cross the boundaries between MPVs and compact hatchbacks has to to buyers of all three types of In the case of the ix35, the transmissions and on offer will cater for customers’ diverse desires.

All have modern six-speed as standard. In both diesel the standard six-speed manual multi-cone synchronisation, wîth weight and enhanced efficiency to contribute to the models excellent efficiency and emissions. The unit is for life and is filled wîth low oil, requiring no servicing the life of the vehicle.

Petrol come wîth a two-wheel-drive while the 2.0 CRDi is offered the option of four-wheel-drive.

Both two and models come wîth two safety innovations, courtesy of the Electronic Stability Programme The first of these is called which stands for Hillstart Control and helps prevent the car rolling backwards in a hill-start

The second is DBC, or Downhill Control, and limits the car’s on steep descents. It allows the to maintain full control needing to feather the brakes or in a low gear.

The four-wheel-drive option is expected to popular wîth customers from the conventional SÚV market who use their vehicle for towing, or who in areas often affected by weather conditions.

The drivetrain is a ratio 4WD system, wîth a status that delivers all of the torque to the front wheels ‘routine’ driving. This set up for better overall fuel and lower emissions.

Whenever a wheel loses grip, a of the car’s available torque is transferred to the rear wheels to forward motion. But if the driver to engage the 4WD system permanently, in slippery conditions, or for greater when towing, ‘Lock can be selected. This splits the equally between the ix35’s and rear axles for better up to a maximum speed of 25mph.

The 2.0 automatic features an all-new self-shifting transmission that is and lighter than any other automatic offered anywhere in

As well as the obvious economy and benefits, the system uses a torque converter to reduce its size, and features three gears and four pinion

Although it offers smooth and gearshifts throughout the rev range in auto mode, the gearbox can be used like a sequential manual. A gate-type shift allows the driver to choose fully automatic or clutchless ‘Sport’ modes, which even more driver and a more rewarding driving beyond the city limits.

and Safety

• Sophisticated multi-link suspension, full active and safety systems, ESP standard the range

In order to reduce costs, many manufacturers use torsion beam suspension at the of their cars. Compact and the passive nature of a torsion allows for neutral and predictable suitable for most applications.

But drivers can tell the difference, and a torsion beam there’s a slight trade off in terms of quality and dynamic ability.

why the Hyundai ix35 has an advanced fully independent suspension set up on all Normally found on more cars, the design incorporates a mounted damper and coil to reduce intrusion into the space.

In addition to the multi-link the ix35 features Amplitude Dampers (ASD), which the ability to deliver a smooth on broken town and city wîth firmer control at speeds, or when traversing country roads.

At the front, the uses the tried and tested of Macpherson struts and coil wîth new side-load coil to deliver even better and ride comfort.

Both and rear suspension components are on lightweight hydro-formed subframes, advanced bushes to help passengers from irregularities in the surface. The separate subframes helps keep repair low in the event of an accident, as the front or suspension can be removed and replaced as a unit.

The good dynamics are enhanced by variable-assistance power which is speed sensitive so it a light, low effort feel parking or driving in town, yet much more substantial when driving on motorways or A-Roads. The §teering requires than three turns lock-to-lock and is fully electronic. It delivers an exceptionally tight circle.

Talking of tight ESP (Electronic Stability Programme) is as standard across the entire range, even though manufacturers insist on it being an option. The feature helps the car stable in emergency situations, and is to the ABS braking system. All ÚK ix35s come wîth reverse sensors as standard to further add to levels.

Customers who order the ‘Media Pack’ will get a rear-view camera, which is on the car’s tailgate. This is wîth a 130-degree wide lens that transmits to the sat nav screen in the car’s dash.

Of course, even wîth the best in active safety the inevitable can sometimes happen. The has been designed to deliver the possible levels of protection if an accident does occur.

Although it hasn’t yet tested by Euro NCAP, a five-star rating in these and maximum score in the ÚSA’s two testing programmes were during the ix35’s development, and a performance is expected. In fact safety expertise was demonstrated the ix35’s little sister – the i20 – higher in Euro NCAP than an SÚV from a well-known manufacturer!
