Comfortable to drive and very well built, the ix35 SUV is Hyundai's answer to the likes of the Nissan Qashqai and Kia Sportage. Its high suspension offers the driver a good view of the road ahead and the interior is very well equipped, especially in the top-spec Premium model. It also offers reasonable practicality and looks good, too. It gets Hyundai's so-called "fluidic sculpture" design and was styled by Peter Schreyer - the same man who created the ever-fashionable Audi TT. Don't forget Hyundai's five-year warranty, which offers real peace of mind, as well as an annual car health check, free of charge.
