The Hyundai range 2018-2019 replenished with the newest Hyundai ix35 crossover, presented in China at the Shanghai Motor Show 2017. In the review, the new generation of Hyundai iks 35 – photos and videos, price and equipment, technical characteristics of a crossover with brutal appearance, an SUV created exclusively for the Chinese market. New Hyundai ix35 is preparing to embark on the conveyor of the Beijing Hyundai plant (JV Beijing Automotive Group and Hyundai Motor Company), located in the Shunyi area (the satellite city of Beijing), side by side with the previous generation Hyundai ai 35 . Sales of the new Hyundai ix35 turbocharged 1.4 T-GDI and atmospheric 2.0-liter engine will start in the Chinese market in the 4th quarter of 2017, the price of the novelty will be 160-230 thousand yuan.
The Heavenly market for Hyundai Motor Company is predominant. As a result of last year, Chinese motorists purchased more than 1,142,000 cars with the Hyundai logo, which is almost a quarter of the world sales of the South Korean company. The second most important Indian market, where over the past year sold more than 662 thousand copies of cars Hyundai. So such a high level of sales simply obliges the leadership of Hyundai to create new products, focused exclusively on motorists of two countries – China and India. That’s absolutely new crossover Hyundai ix35 claimed by the manufacturer, as an exclusive Chinese innovation in 2018 will reach India.
The new generation Hyundai aiks 35 at the automobile exhibition in Shanghai made a real sensation, and this is despite the fact that visitors could appreciate only the appearance of the novelty. Look in the interior of the new model and find out the exact specifications of the new crossover, alas, there was no possibility. But the exterior design of the body … such a Hyundai has not yet done. The new ix35 looks not typical and extraordinary, not only against the background of the previous generation of the model, but also alongside representatives of the modern crossover line of the Korean manufacturer Hyundai Creta (in China Hyundai ix25 ), Hyundai Tucson , Hyundai Santa Fe and Hyundai Grand Santa Fe seem to be a non-native.
The solid front part of the body with a huge falshradiator grille (only it, perhaps, gives out the origin of the crossover), large headlights, complemented by stylish semi-rings of LED daytime running lights and a massive bumpers with complex terrain, and large fog lights.
On the side, the crossover body is a complete revelation: powerfully inflated wheel arches visually enlarging the width of the car, large rectangles of side doors with a high window sill, an even roof line with a dazzling bend formed at the meeting with a wide rear rack, rear side window-loopholes, original light alloy pattern 18 -inch wheel disks, shod in rubber 255/55 R18.
The feed of the new Korean crossover for China looks just as powerful and bright. In the presence of a bumper like a full-fledged SUV with solid protection, a compact tailgate and chic LED lights in parking lights, mesmerizing graphics.
Designers working on the appearance of the new Hyundai ix35 clearly inspired by the creation of the novelty appearance of American SUVs – another explanation for the fact that the new crossover looks so brutal, simply not.
- The exterior dimensions of the body of the Hyundai ix35 2018-2019 year are 4435 mm in length, 1850 mm in width, 1670 mm in height, with 2640 mm of wheelbase.
- The new generation of Hyundai ai35 is larger than the model of the previous generation of the crossover in all directions: in length by 15 mm, by 30 mm in width, by 10 mm in height and only the wheelbase dimensions are identical.
As it was said at the beginning of the review, it was not possible to evaluate the interior of the novelty at the exhibition visitors. The doors of the crossover turned out to be closed, and the glasses were tightly tinted. One can only assume that the new ix35 will receive the interior from the Hyundai Tucson model. At the same time, the manufacturer promises a very rich equipment of the novelty with advanced equipment: parking sensors, a rear-view camera or an all-round vision system, keyless access to the interior, a multimedia system with an 8-inch touch screen, front seats with electric drive and heating, dual-zone climate control, panoramic roof , Parking Assistant, Lane Departure Warning System, Lane Keeping Assist System, Hillstart Assist Control, adaptive cruise control, electric parking brake, leather seat trim.
Technical characteristics Hyundai ix35 2018-2019 year. The new generation of Hyundai ai35 for China relies on a modernized predecessor cart with a completely independent suspension architecture. But if the front suspension with McPherson struts has migrated to the novelty without change, then the rear multi-link is now used from the younger brother of the Hyundai ix25 crossover (Hyundai Creta).
Under the hood, according to preliminary information, two petrol four-cylinder engines will be prescribed exclusively in the company with a 7-step “robot” DCT completed with two clutch discs (we do not exclude the presence of the 6 MKPP in the base crossover with an atmospheric engine). Standard drive to the front wheels, and as an option, buyers will be offered all-wheel drive versions of the novelty.
