Hyundai IX35 Crossover Review - Hyundai Reviews South Africa

The appeal of the ix35 is pretty obvious a smart-looking Crossover, with the option of four-wheel drive for a lot less money than most rivals.

On the outside, the ix35 looks like a cross between a Ford Kuga or Nissan Qashqai, but, like for like, it's a lot cheaper than either.

You get a lot for your money, too, because all versions are expected to come with alloy wheels, Bluetooth and rear parking sensors.

The 2.0-litre diesel engine is particularly strong, and most buyers are expected to choose that over the 2.0-litre petrol version. A 1.6 petrol and 1.7 diesel models both with an engine stop-start system will join the range.

Both front- and four-wheel drive versions of the 2.0-litre models are available. Lower running costs make the front-wheel drive models a better bet for most buyers and Hyundai expects them to account for at least 80% of sales.

Hyundai IX35 CrossoverPro's and Con's

Pro: The ix35 is cheaper and better equipped than many rivals. It's also practical and has a powerful diesel engine.

Con: The ix35 falls short of its key rivals in terms of ride comfort, refinement and interior quality.
