Editions and Variants
The first ix35s rolled out in 2010 with three editions on the table including the active, the elite, and the Highlander. The SE wasn’t released until 2013. This mid-size SUV has been an all around good car that ticks most boxes for the average driver who spends most driving time in urban and suburban areas. The iX35 is fitted with either a 2.0L, a 2.4L, or a 2.0L CRDi variant engine and both petrol and diesel are available.
The entry-level Active edition is paired only with a 2.0L petrol engine, is Front-wheel-drive, and has the option for either a 5-speed manual or 6-speed automatic transmission. It is the only edition that has a manual transmission available.
The Elite can be paired with any of the engines, including turbo-diesel, has the option for 6-speed automatic transmission only, and can be in Front-wheel-drive or All-wheel-drive.
The Highlander comes with either the 2.4L petrol engine or the 2.0 CRDi turbo-diesel, a 6-speed automatic transmission, and all-wheel-drive.
The SE that came out in 2013 can pair with the 2.0L petrol engine in FWD, or the turbo-diesel in AWD, both with a 6-speed automatic transmission.
Engine Power and Torque
The 2.0L petrol engine makes 122kW and 197Nm, the 2.4 L petrol engine makes 130kW and 227 Nm, and the 2.0L CRDi turbo-diesel makes 135kW and 392 Nm. The petrol engines have 4 valves/aluminium cylinder, compression ratios of 10.5:1, and a continuously variable intake and exhaust valve timing. The Diesel engine also has four valves per aluminium cylinder, a compression ratio of 16.0:1, variable geometry turbocharger, a diesel particulate filter, and chain-driven double overhead camshafts.
The Hyundai iX35 is a popular car amongst families with ample leg room, a sliding back row of seats and easily accessed boot space. The 591 Litres of cargo room can expand up to 1436 Litres with the seats down making it a great vehicle for camping, moving, or transporting large items. Compared to previous models, the iX35 is slightly longer, wider, and lower, so it’s important to check for scuffs and scratches if a previous owner has done any off-road adventures. Spare parts are generally easily available in Australia. While you’re at it, check for any crunching sounds on shifting, or any delayed starting with a TD engine.
All editions of the iX35 received a 5-star ANCAP safety rating. The standard safety packages include airbags in the front, rear, side and curtain, Automatic Braking system, electronic stability control and brake force distribution, traction control, hill-start assist and downhill braking assist, pretensioners and load limiter seat belts, anti-submarining front seats and active seat head restraints.
Before the roll out of the 2011 range, some interesting updates were made including bluetooth connectivity, an electric power unit rather than hydraulic steering for reduced kickback, rear-parking sensors, darker privacy glass and an ASD system. The entry-level Active editions no longer included the power adjustable driver’s seats.
