2014 Hyundai ix35 Se (FWD) Review

- shares

The ix35 is outstanding value for money. Above average fuel efficiency. Smooth ride even in areas of rough road and dirt road. Comfortable for both short and long distance travel. Features are all very good.

The 12 volt outlets are excellent in number and position. The drink holders are well positioned. Critical comment is some moderate road noise entering the cabin due to absence of baffles between tyres and vehicle frame. However, engine noise very minimal. Automatic gearbox delivers smooth and silent gear changes.

Moderate servicing costs are among the best available and are therefore welcome. Mobile/cell phone pairing is difficult but maybe due to my limited knowledge of this function. Reversing screen is on the rear view mirror is adequate but a little small. Does not have GPS which is available in other models. Grandkids love the audio system and record their favourite music and plays them back.

Floor covering carpet much improved (compared with earlier models) for easy cleaning. Recent day tour carrying 4 adults was a driving pleasure with good ride, due to great suspension. Ample power and able to climb steep hills with ease and with limited engine noise.

Cruise control frequently used. Easy to use and a great feature when you have tiring legs. Sound system excellent and controls on steering wheel provides simple operational control. Road and scenery vision excellent with outstanding design the reason.

Spacious rear cargo area is generous and excellent and surprised our guests during our recent full-day excursion. Have convinced two family members to also buy Hyundai vehicles and both are extremely happy with their choice.
