Under the hood tested Hyundai ix35 is Comma-rail diesel engine capacity of 1685 cm3, equipped with a variable geometry turbine, develops a maximum 115 horsepower at 4,000 r / min and 260 Nm of torque ranging from 1250 to 2750 r / min. Motor impressed us with elasticity, and strong pressure on the accelerator achieves excellent between acceleration, so overtaking pure routine. The engine is mated to a six-speed manual gearbox, which proved to be a fantastic power broker. The first and second gear are relatively short and are ideal for large and rugged ascent, like in the city service. If you thought the highway ix35 will quickly lose your breath, you are wrong. Sixth gear is able to play around with 1.5 tons of hard drive from 80 to over 170 km / h, which is the maximum speed. However, we suggest extreme speed , for the time consumption radically increases.
As the consumption of our test is concerned, we will be concrete. Hyundai ix35 at a speed of 100 km / h in sixth gear, at 2200 r / min, consumes 5.2 liters of diesel per 100 kilometers. When we raised the speed to 130 km / h, the crankshaft speed is increased to 2800 r / min, and increased consumption of 7.5 l/100 km. As you can see, the Hyundai ix35 consumption is comparable with cars lower middle class. Average consumption in our tests ranged about 6 liters of “black gold” to 100 kilometers.
As far as ride comfort, all the passengers were happy, as those on the front, and those who were riding in the back seats. Lateral body roll is minimal, which has a positive impact on driving comfort, especially for rear passengers. The car was not “nervous” when moving through the holes and bumps on the cross not bounce, which is typical for cars with torsion beam rear axle. The seats have soft sides, a central seating and lumbar seat is pretty tough.
Demands of family, the best answer will offer a great space, and this applies to trunk primary volume 465 liters. Folding rear seat, storage volume increases to 1436 liters envious. If you are looking for flaws ix35 model, then let it be plastic interior, which does not give the impression of quality. The instrument panel is attractively designed, and has a good finish, but the materials used had to be better.
