The prices and specification for the Hyundai New Generation i30 3-door, which is set to start selling on Jan. 24, 2013, have been unveiled. At the launch, there will be four trim levels available for the i30 3 door. There will be two new trims exclusive to the new three-door bodystyle. The entry-level Classic has a starting price of £13,995 OTR.
The New Generation i30 3 door provides its own individual style, which makes it stand out from the other models in the range. The new design features can be immediately distinguished with a bold front spoiler and reshaped front bumper while a modified lower section at the rear help with the notable changes. In addition, it features new front and rear fog lamps, a new-look mesh grille, a sharply-raked beltline and a sportier rear incorporating LED taillights.
The i30 3 door has a significantly roomy interior with two fewer doors than the Hatchback. Its luggage capacity is the same as that of the i30 Hatchback with a huge 378-litre boot (1,316 litres with the seats down), while easy-entry rear seat access permits passengers to easily enter and leave the rear seats. Just like the Hatchback and Tourer siblings, the i30 3 door comes with a long list of standard specifications across the range.
The entry-level Classic trim has the following features: Bluetooth connectivity with voice recognition, steering wheel audio and phone controls, LED daytime running lights, body-coloured exterior door handles, USB and AUX connections and air conditioning. On the other hand, the mid-range Active trim provides extra comfort and convenience features like 16-inch alloys, cruise control, rear parking sensors and a leather steering wheel and gearknob.
The mid-range trim level has a starting price of £15,195 OTR for the 100PS 1.4-litre petrol variant with the efficient Active 1.6 CRDi 110PS Blue Drive priced at £17,490 OTR. The Blue Drive model can emit only 100g/km of CO2 and could return 74.3mpg on the combined cycle.
