Hyundai ix35 Available on the Australian Market

Aussies looking for a crossover have just got a new alternative. Hyundai launched its ix35 crossover on the Australian market and hopes that the car designed at Hyundai’s Design Centre Europe at Russelsheim in Germany will appeal to the Australian buyers.

“New ix35 is available in three trim levels, Active, Elite and top of the range Highlander. With a wide choice of engines and transmissions plus a range of premium features including rear camera, panorama glass roof and full iPod integration, new ix35 brings ‘designer’ style and luxury to the compact SUV segment,” says Hyundai.

As the options list is more than satisfying and Hyundai says the engine and transmissions will cover all needs, the only deal-breaker could be the design. Though there is not much chance that the car will win any design awards, it’s not that bad either. Whether you like it or not, Hyundai explains its design like this:

“The hexagonal grille previewed on the ‘ix-onic’ concept car moves into mass production on the ix35, a defining look which will serve to unify the family of future Hyundai products. The grille is body colour on the entry level Active model and finished with chrome highlights and complimented by chrome door handles on Elite and Highlander models. Swept back headlights, a lower air intake and heavily inclined A-pillar add to the sporting appearance, whilst prominent wheel arches impart a confident stance.”

For big families, the ix35 comes with 19 different storage options, including:
  • Console storage tray
  • Glove box
  • Overhead sunglass storage
  • Armrest storage compartment
  • Two front seat drink holders
  • Two rear centre armrest drink holders
  • Four bottle holders – one in each door
  • Four map pockets – one in each door
  • Two seatback pockets
