Hyundai’s iX factor: Ray Massey takes the iX35 for a spin

These crossovers are replacing the traditional family saloon. Ray Massey of the Daily Mail finds out why

It’s the second generation of the Korean compact SUV that has already sold 30, 000 in Britain and 220, 000 in Europe since its launch in 2010. I am impressed with the performance of the Hyundai iX35 Keyless entry and a push button fire up the engine. It has a fairly willing 1.7 litre 4-cylinder 16 valve CRDi diesel engine linked to a smooth six-speed manual gearbox.
