Hyundai ix35

The Hyundai ix35 is a compact crossover, which means it mixes the small dimensions and low running costs of a regular family hatchback with the raised driving position and increased interior space of an SUV. It's a rival to cars such as the Nissan Qashqai, Skoda Yeti and Ford Kuga and aims to provide stylish and well equipped family transport.
