Get an Affordable View From the Top in a Hyundai Ix35

February 02, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 169

Whether you prefer to call it a crossover, a compact SUV, a soft roader or recreational vehicle, one thing you definitely want to call the Hyundai ix35 is your own. When the Korean car manufacturer announced that it would be replacing the legendary Tuscon, everybody knew it had big tracks to fill. And did it ever. With soaring sales and a thumbs up from the industry and public alike, the Hyundai ix35 is growing in popularity and reputation. It even cracked a 6th position in the 2010 South African Car of the Year Awards.

The Hyundai ix35 gets a second glance, every time. Moving away from the typical square SUV lines, the ix35 incorporates Hyundai's fluidic styling inside and out, which is clearly visible in its bonnet creases, swept back head lights, side contours and sloping tail gate. Its bold hexagonal grille, large alloy wheels and wide stance in turn give it a powerful presence, both on the road and on your driveway.

The interior has modern sophistication written all over it. Besides quality trim and finishes, Hyundai has also fitted every feature to make your driving experience enjoyable. Facing the driver is an informative blue LED light cluster and trip computer, which can be set to display information that's important to you. Other features that put the fun into functional include air conditioning to keep you cool, cruise control on most models that does the thinking for you and an audio system that lets you choose to listen to music your way - whether tuning into a radio station, popping in a CD or connecting to your MP3 player, USB device or iPod®.

It's a general belief that bigger vehicles are inherently safer. This certainly is the case with the Hyundai ix35, but it's also the vehicle's standard active and passive features including ABS, EBD, crumple zones, side impact beams, a collapsible steering column and all-round airbags, that play a part. Another size advantage is space. An increased rear overhang allows for very generous luggage room, while clever storage compartments take care of the rest.

The one thing on the Hyundai ix35 that surprises all is its price. Retailing from a mere R259 900 at local Hyundai dealerships in South Africa, it's more affordable than you'd expect and with low fuel consumption figures and a 5 year/90 000km service plan, it won't cost you an arm and a leg to maintain. It also spoils you with choice. The ix35 range offers both petrol and diesel engines, 4x2 and 4x4 drivetrains as well as manual and automatic transmission options. All you have to do is find your perfect match.
