The Hyundai ix55 (also called the Hyundai ix55) is a mid-size crossover manufactured and marketed by Hyundai, a South Korean automotive manufacturer, from 2006 to 2015. The ix55 was available in the US, Canada, South Korea, China, Morocco, South America, and the Middle East. From 2007 to 2011, Hyundai also sold it to Europe and Asia. Except in South Korea, the ix55 has been discontinued in other nations.

History of the Hyundai ix55

Hyundai ix55 variants of this vehicle have been on the market in a few countries since 2007. As of 2009, the Hyundai ix55 is available in the Russian market. A stretched Hyundai Santa Fe platform serves as the foundation for this vehicle. The 2009 ix55, or ix55, for some countries, is Hyundai's biggest vehicle. This year's ix55 has three rows of seating for seven passengers. Despite its low price, the 2009 ix55 has a dynamic appearance that includes a rear spoiler, wrap-around three-tiered headlamps, and plenty of chrome highlights. The car's engine and suspension are well praised for delivering exceptional performance and a smooth ride. Some drivers complain of tire and suspension noises in the interior, but overall, it's a quiet and comfortable ride.


This is one of Hyundai's greatest models and is an excellent value for the money. According to research, the Hyundai Ix55's market price ranges from $13,000 to $17,000.


The seven-seater interior of the ix55 is big enough for both passengers and the driver to feel at ease. For drivers of all heights, an adjustable seat with decent side-to-side support, lumbar support, and a wide range of reclining positions ensures a comfortable ride. It is possible to move the second-row seats forward if necessary to accommodate the third-row seats, which may be folded in half for even more convenience. Base, Ultimate, and Luxury are the trim options offered for the Hyundai ix55. However, even in its base configuration, the SUV appears to be very solid:

  • Cruise Control
  • Infinity Audio System
  • Dual-Zone Climate Control
  • Tinted Rear Windows
  • A Rear Spoiler
  • Beige or Black Leather Interior
  • Wood Trim
  • Heated Wiper Rest Zones

Regarding comfort, Hyundai engineers don't overlook the importance of a safe driving experience for the driver and passengers alike. A sophisticated computer system has tested the car's body's gain zone and unique deformation zones. Aside from the frontal and side airbags, the Korean SUV also has active head restraints that may be activated to safeguard the neck and upper spine in the event of a significant rear crash. In addition, the Hyundai ix55 has specific technologies that keep the driver and passenger in the front seat in place during frontal and side crashes.

Safety features of the ix55 are as follows:

  • 17-Inch Front Discs
  • 16-Inch Rear Discs
