Background

This is Hyundai’s first small crossover - designed to compete head-on with the likes of the all-conquering Qashqai, Tiguan and Captur. Much of the hardware is shared with elsewhere in the Hyundai-Kia firmament, so there will be no surprises in store on the engine front.

60sec road test

Sold in two- and four-wheel drive, the ix35 is a highly competitive mid-sized SUV. And - surprise surprise - one of its killer attributes is outright value. The latest facelift has bestowed upon it an array of new gizmos which would add £££ to rivals: LED lights, alloy wheels, Bluetooth, USB, heated seats and more are standard on every model. It looks neat and is slap bang in the heartland of one of Britain’s most booming new-car segments. The drive? It’s not the best-to-drive crossover, but it’s good enough in most important areas that matter. Conclusion? Hyundai’s best car is a Kuga-like soft-roader that’s good to drive, well built and very un-Korean looking. Result.
