South Korean multinational automotive manufacturer unveiles the third-generation i30 hatch before its official launch at the Paris motor show 2016. Hyundai i30 would be the first ever high-performance model from the manufacturer to be launched under the ‘N’ brand.
The hatchback will make its debut in European showrooms by early 2017. New i30 manages to house all the latest design and features in the present Hyundai. The car gets the new Fluidic Sculpture design, sharper and edgier styling courtesy which enhances the out view of the vehicle.
The New Generation i30 supports very agile and responsive handling and is the first Hyundai car to feature the new turbo-charged petrol engine, the 1.4 T-GDI with 140 PS.
The front of the new Generation i30 is confident and expressive, creating a recognisable presence on the road. The new Cascading Grille has a powerful downward tapering gesture inspired by the momentous flow of poured molten steel. The grille features chrome-plated dots for a sophisticated appearance enhancing the satin chrome surrounding of the standard version.
In combination with the three-projector full LED (low and high beam) headlamps and the LED vertical daytime running lights with indicator function, the New Generation i30 has a strong visual presence. To further enhance this projector-type front, fog lamps are integrated into the air curtains.
i30 offers generous luggage capacity of up to 395 litres (VDA 211) with a practical two-stage luggage board and a ski hatch in the rear centre seat.
The New Generation i30 features the latest active safety features to comply with the highest European safety standards: Autonomous Emergency Braking with Front Collision Warning System, Smart Cruise Control, Blind Spot Detection, Rear Cross Traffic Alert, Lane Keeping Assist System, Speed Limit Information Function and High Beam Assist.
