Hyundai Motor has today announced pricing and specification for the

success in the UK's compact SUV segment. The New ix35, which is on
sale from 1 September 2013, will feature a number of new standard
equipment features in addition to several new optional specification
choices - several of which are available for the first time on ix35. 
Trims for the New Hyundai ix35 have been realigned and now feature
five clearly defined specification levels: entry-level S, mid-range
SE and SE Nav and two range-topping trims called 'Premium' and
'Premium Panorama'. 
Tony Whitehorn, President and CEO of Hyundai Motor UK, said: "The
ix35 is one of the fastest-selling models in our product range with
just under 30,000 units sold in the UK since launch in late 2010. The
New ix35 will continue this trend as it offers retail and corporate
buyers a stylish, practical and safe vehicle that is equally at home
in the city as it is out of it. With the latest enhancements, the New
ix35 will deliver an even greater level of value-for-money in this
popular segment of the car market." 
New Hyundai ix35 SUV retains the 1.6-litre GDi petrol and 1.7-litre
and 2.0-litre CRDi engines, but for the latest model year, Hyundai
will now offer Intelligent Stop & Go (ISG) as an option on the
1.7-litre CRDi. Further changes to the engine line-up include the
introduction of a six-speed automatic transmission on the 2.0-litre
