The ix35 is the latest addition to the ever increasing "crossover" section of the market and is aimed squarely to take on rivals such as the Nissan Qashqai. The ix35 certainly looks the part with a sleek modern design, a theme that is continued inside. The Interior has plenty of space for occupants in the front and rear, and a big boot so it makes an ideal family car. On road it drives well and wind and road noise are well contained but noticeable at speed, the engines are smooth and refined, just don't expect it impress if you ever decide to venture off road, its origins are firmly based on tarmac. The ix35 is backed up with Hyundai's five year warranty and it's very safe.
