Our Fleet Test Drive: Hyundai ix35 - 8th report
01 July 2011

On double yellows
With rugged faux-SUV styling and comparatively high ground clearance, our ix35 looks the part in rural settings, despite its current users not having a clue about hunting, shooting or fishing, apart from owning a pair of black labs.
Switch to an urban street setting and Hyundai's pragmatic approach to in-car security provides a more tranquil time for dogs and
passers-by alike: there is no horn-sounding alarm system, triggered by movement within the locked car, so given reasonable temperatures, brief dashes to and from shops are possible without nerve shredding hooting and barking.
