Hyundai Australia has introduced a new model into its ix35 SUV line-up, along with a number of specification upgrades for 2013.

The mid-range Elite model will now be available in two-wheel-drive form, joining the existing entry-level Active 2WD.

As with the Active version, the two-wheel-drive ix35 Elite is driven by Hyundai's 2.0 litre petrol engine, producing 122kW and 197Nm of torque.

Paired with a six-speed automatic transmission only in Elite form, fuel consumption is listed at 8.5 l/100km.

All Elite models, two-wheel- and all-wheel-drive, have also gained new features, including an electro-chromatic rear-view mirror and fully automatic dual-zone climate control air conditioning.

A rear-view camera has also been added, its image displaying in the satellite navigation screen.

Hyundai's new satellite navigation system is now featured in both Elite and top-shelf Highlander trim, featuring a 6.5-inch touch screen integrated into the dash.

The system features SUNA live traffic updates, a Point of Interest (POI) database, and Navteq maps with a three year MapCare plan.

The nav system includes full maps in 2D and '3D', split screen display, motorway junction views, lane guidance, speed warnings, 3D landmark visuals, multi-route planning (fast, short, eco) and detour function, and address input with intelligent typewriter.

The entry-level Active models have also been upgraded, gaining a five-inch touch-screen audio system, with six speakers and tweeters, iPod/USB/auxiliary and Bluetooth connectivity (phone and audio streaming) and hard-drive album storage.

The ix35 range is also covered by Hyundai's updated iCare program. More about the iCare package here.
