Hyundai ix35: specifications and model description
Hyundai ix35 - crossover from the new modela number of Korean companies. After updating and restarting the design, the affairs of the Koreans went uphill. First, the super-successful "Solaris" raised the reputation of the brand. The company decided not to stop there and make a whole lineup in the same style and performance. Ix35 replaced the hopelessly outdated Tucson. By the way, in Korea the crossover still has this name. What is ix35 in the end? Technical specifications, a description of the exterior and interior you will read in this review and form your opinion about this car.
Ix35 with all its appearance says that it is cozy andfamily. Unlike the sharp and angular forms of the brothers, this crossover got smooth and graceful lines. Wavy bands of wheel arches in front and behind give a muscular and swollen appearance. Front and rear lights are made in the classic style of the brand, like a radiator grille with bumpers. The lower part of the bumpers is finished with black plastic, which is a very practical solution. The design of the car was created in the European branch of Hyundai. Disappointing one thing is the cautious attitude of the Korean concern to the changes in design. This style has brought their company a lot of popularity and praise of owners, so you need to change something carefully and without fanaticism. Restyling ix35 brought absolutely nothing new in the appearance of the crossover. Only optics have changed. On the roof of the car appeared trunk for the transportation of bulky cargo.
Comfortable salon is the main advantage of ix35. The technical characteristics of the model with the upgrade were improved, but in the salon they decided not to touch anything. In form, the center console still resembles the space shuttle control panel. In the center of the console is a 7-inch multimedia system with a touch screen. Navigation has expanded with a set of maps for Russia and the whole of Europe. As always, all the basic controls of the functional are made on the rudder panel. Made all succinctly and conveniently - the buttons absolutely do not interfere with driving, and accidentally touching them is almost impossible. Of the nice chips of the salon you can note two sockets for 12 volts, heated steering wheel, seats and USB-port. A trifle, but nice. For an additional amount you can get a two-zone glass roof.
Noise insulation and quality of collection at altitude. The panels start to creak only while driving on a completely disgusting road or across rough terrain. Relative silence inside the cabin pleases during a trip to ix35. Technical characteristics of the car allow you to enjoy a calm and measured ride, so the engine noise will not be a hindrance to the conversation of passengers or listening to music.
The only thing you can scold the salon forcrossover is the shape of the front seats. Lateral support is very weak, plus uncomfortable backs. What can not be said about the rear row of seats - they can accommodate passengers with all the amenities. High people, too, will not remain in the grievance: there is plenty of room for the head and legs at the rear of the car. The ix35 luggage rack is striking in volume. Without folded seats, absolutely all things can be placed in it for a long trip, thus not littering the saloon.
