The Hyundai ix35 range has been revised for 2014, and will be available in a choice of five trims and with three engine options.  Prices will start from £16,995 when it goes on sale on 1st September 2013.

New features include LED daytime running lights and LED marker lights, tyre pressure monitoring, trailer stability assist, and an upgraded audio and navigation system.

Stop/start technology is now standard on the 1.7-litre diesel, plus there’s the option of a six-speed automatic transmission on the 2.0-litre 136PS 4WD model.  The 181PS model is no longer available.

The chassis also benefits from revised dampers and side-load coil springs to improve ride and handling.

The range starts with the £16,995 ix35 S, available with either the 1.6-litre petrol or 1.7-litre diesel, and includes 16-inch alloy wheels, remote central locking, alarm, USB and Aux connectivity, air conditioning, trip computer, hill-start assist and downhill brake control.

The SE starts from £18,495 for the 1.6-litre 2WD model, and adds 17-inch alloy wheels, Bluetooth, cruise control, front foglights, heated front and rear seats, LED tail-lights, rear parking sensors, auto-dimming rear view mirror, and a leather steering wheel and gear knob.

The SE Nav variant adds satellite navigation, rear-view parking camera, and an upgraded seven-speaker sound system for an extra £1,000.

The range-topping Premium and Premium Panorama trims both feature 18-inch alloy wheels, bi-xenon headlights, chrome door handles, keyless entry, leather seats and privacy glass, while the Panorama model further benefits from an electric tilt and slide panoramic sunroof.
