2.0-litre petrol and diesel engines on offer in Hyundai's Qashqai rival
23 February 2010

The new Hyundai ix35 will cost from £16,495 when it goes on sale in March - and Hyundai is pitching the car as a crossover in the mould of the Nissan Qashqai.

That price buys you a front-drive Style model, which comes with 17-inch wheels, Bluetooth and front and rear heated seats as standard.

Upgrade to Premium and you get 18-inch wheels, automatic lights, keyless entry and rain-sensing wipers. Four-wheel-drive ix35s start at £18,995.

All ix35s except the entry-level model (which gets a 2.0-litre petrol four) come with a 2.0-litre four-cylinder diesel engine, although Hyundai will introduce a 1.6-litre direct-injection petrol and a 1.7-litre diesel this autumn.

Our Verdict

Hyundai ix35 crossover

The Hyundai ix35 is a style-conscious soft-roader with lots of kit, but what about ability?

The design direction that Hyundai have taken to develop this car is perfect and will be key to the success that im sure it will have. Reviews have already shown (found another here: http://www.carverdict.com.au/hyundai/ix35-suv) that the Hyundai ix35 can even perform rather than just "look good". I've been inside the car and its a modern styled sleek; almost futuristic design that appeals to a younger audience. I can't point a finger on many bad points given the ix35 price tag, Hyundai are just doing it all right at the moment!

I'm young and I think the design is horrendous. It doesnt seem to be a very cohesive pice of design. It looks like different people designed the front side and back.

I would much prefer a Nissan Qashqai or Jeep Patriot.

    Diesel version of Skoda’s junior SUV is unobtrusive and undemanding, but we’d still go for the silkier petrol version of the Karoq

    A satisfying rework of the X3 that usefully improves its handling, cabin finish, space and connectivity to make this BMW a class front-runner again

    Off-road estate is now bigger, more spacious and available with torque-vectoring all-wheel drive, but is it enough to make its German rivals anxious?
