The new generation i30 aims to build on the success of the previous model. When launched in 2007, the i30 was Hyundai’s first ‘i’ car and showcased new levels of quality which would are now seen across the Hyundai range. The new car aims to take this to another level, by adding more style and technology to appeal to potential customers.
The new generation Hyundai i30 will be available in four main trim levels including Classic, Active, Style and Style Nav, with customers having the choice of either petrol or diesel engines. Expected to be a popular choice is a super-efficient 1.6-litre diesel unit that emits less than 100g/km CO2 giving customers free road tax and excellent fuel economy.
Hyundai’s Blue Drive technologies come on all 1.6 CRDi manual models as standard and feature Intelligent Stop & Go Technology. This unit is available in outputs of 110PS and 128PS; the former boasting the lowest CO2 emissions figure for a diesel car in its segment with 97g/km. The 128PS unit emits only 100 g/km CO2 and will still qualify for free road tax, while offering consumers more power.
Tony Whitehorn, President and CEO Hyundai Motor UK, says: “The new generation i30 represents another leap forward in terms of Hyundai’s design, refinement and build quality. Coupled with Hyundai’s generous standard specification along and industry leading back-up service and support in the form of the Five Year Triple Care assurance, the new generation i30 truly represents the complete package for customers looking for a high-quality vehicle at an affordable price.”
The new i30 will have in impressive list of standard equipment, which will include voice-activated Bluetooth®, LED daytime running lights, multi-function steering wheel, electrically-adjustable heated door mirrors and one-touch indicators.
As well as user-friendly technology, the i30 will also feature a comprehensive range of safety equipment. Vehicle Stability Management, Emergency Stop Signal and Hill-start Assist Control will be standard features on all models. Active models add 15” alloys, cruise control, rear parking sensors and Hyundai’s new dynamic Flex SteerTM system, which gives the driver the option of three settings: Comfort, Normal and Sport.
All ‘Style’ models benefit from 16” alloy wheels, dual-zone climate control, front parking sensors, rain sensing wipers, cornering lights, automatic headlights, automatic de-fog system for front windscreen and electrically folding door mirrors with LED indicators.
