The new Hyundai ix35, which replaces the Tucson in the Korean firm's European lineup, will cost between £16,495 and £20,745 when it goes on sale in the UK on March 25, the automaker announced today.
At launch the ix35 will be available with a base 161bhp 2.0-liter petrol unit in two-wheel drive form only and a 134bhp 2.0-liter common rail turbo diesel that's offered as a two-wheel and four-wheel drive model.
The entry-level Style trim models come equipped with standard features such as as 17-inch alloy wheels, ESP, air conditioning, built-in Bluetooth phone connectivity, heated front and rear seats, electric heated door mirrors with integrated LED side repeaters, leather steering wheel and gearknob, reverse parking sensors and a trip computer.
The Premium models add 18-inch alloys, a double-length panoramic glass sunroof, automatic headlights, cruise control, dual zone climate control, electric folding door mirrors, keyless entry with engine start/stop button, rear privacy glass, rain-sensing wipers, part-leather upholstery and roof rails.
Later in the year Hyundai will expand the ix35's range with the introduction of a 1.6 gasoline engine with direct injection technology and a new 1.7-liter turbo diesel. More details on these models will be announced in the summer.
