The new Hyundai ix35 is presented three years after the introduction of the Hyundai SUV in the C segment, and includes a wide range of technical improvements.

The facelift for the Hyundai ix35 brings minor changes to the exterior. The fans of this model will discover new bi-xenon headlights with LED daytime running lights, chrome door handles and a slightly different front grille. From the list of novelties we can pick new models of wheels and redesigned rear lights that will benefit, of course, from LED technology.

The cockpit layout remains unchanged, but the chosen finishing materials will give way to a noticeable qualitative leap. Another new interior, with central controls, will be reconfigured, with a more generous sized touchscreen and TFT Supervision digital board instruments. The new system will offer three different settings: FlexSteer for strength direction, Normal, Sport and Comfort.

The new Hyundai ix35, model “made ​​for Europe,” has an improved range of engines, including the new gasoline engine, developed in Europe, a 2.0-liter GDI (gasoline direct injection), which provides a higher power but is also more economical than the one it replaces - the Theta-II 2.0-liter. The diesel engine R has a clean technology type LP-EGR (the exhaust gas recirculation).

To bring more improvements to the dynamics and maneuverability, the new Hyundai ix35 receives a steering system with three modes - Flex Steer.
The drivers can choose between Normal, Comfort and Sport to change the level of response and overall driving experience.

The bi-Xenon headlights and TFT display system gives the driver visual field increased, while the interior of the new Hyundai ix35 has undergone a number of significant improvements and detail that points to the quality, as already mentioned.

Allan Rushforth, Senior Vice President and COO of Hyundai Motor Europe, said “The New ix35 is an important model for Hyundai in Europe. With the original car being so popular across the region, it was important for us to ensure that the upgrades would maintain this popularity. The styling, dynamic and technical upgrades to the New ix35 ensure that the car retains the character which has made it such a success whilst offering customers an even more emotive purchase choice.” He continued “The ix35 was an important model for Hyundai. With eye-catching fluidic sculpture form and European quality, it helped change perceptions of the Hyundai range in the region. New ix35, with its enhanced powertrain line-up, interior refinements and sharper styling will appeal to a broad range of buyers in Europe.”

The Hyundai ix35 has become the best selling model of the brand in Europe until now and still remains extremely popular among Hyundai customers with over 87,000 units sold in 2012. It was the first who introduced in the Hyundai model the design language “fluidic sculpture” - the elements of design that keep the new Hyundai ix35 the distinguishing mark of the company; we include here the hexagonal front grille.

The model was designed and developed at the Hyundai Motor Europe Technical Centre in Russelsheim, Germany, and produced at the company's factory in the Czech Republic.
