Looks promising but I wonder what sort of off-road ability it will have. Knowing Hyundai, the new car will be well thought out & made & should complement their range. As usual though, there will probably be supply problems when its first released, but I cannot wait to see it down here in Australia.
Looks good, I want one!
Looks great and hopefully other aspects will be much improved to the quality of the new i cars, but Hyundai copied the Dualis’ concept name of urban nomad. That is no coincidence.
“Hyundai’s new six-speed automatic transmission will deliver power to all four wheels”. The previously published article on Hyundai’s new auto tranny made no mention of being a dual clutch unit. Interesting then that Hyundai’s 19Feb09 press release about their “urban nomad ‘ix-onic’ crossover concept” states that it uses a “double-clutch six-speed transmission”. Strange indeed…
Saw this car in the city of sydney today being followed by a film truck, obviousley doing a commercial, in the darling harbour area. Obviousley no disguise and sporting manufacturer style ‘iX35′ number plates on it.
I don’t think the will be any question regarding the off road ability of the ix35 as Hyundai have proven them selves with Santa fe.
looks great.. i’m in the market for a new car was looking at the tuscon, dualis… not wanting offroad just AWD for hills etc…. should I wait for the Ix35 what do you thik
