Hyundai finally disclosed to the public the specifications and full pricing for its new generation i30 hatchback. The new i30 will rely on the success of its outgoing predecessor, which was widely known for its quality and maneuverability. The new i30 comes with a fresh style, better interior quality and newer technology, filled with rational and emotional appeal.

The new i30 is available in four interior trim options -- Classic, Active, Style and Style Nav, and five engine choices – diesel or petrol, including variations.

Variations include Hyundai’s latest ultra-efficient 1.6-litre diesel unit with CO2 emissions of less than 100g/km. The new i30also comes in two transmission options – manual and automatic. All 1.6 CRDi manual models are fitted with the company’s Blue Drive and Intelligent Stop & Go technologies.

i30 comes in two available outputs – 110PS and 128PS. The 110PS units boast of being the lowest CO2 emitting car in the C-segment with 97g/km.

The 128PS, meanwhile, is an ideal efficient car, in which buyers do not only get a powerful engine, but also helps the environment with low emissions and low fuel consumption. First unveiled in 2007, the latest version of the i30 will roll out in the United Kingdom on March 12, 2012 with a starting price of £14,495. The i30 comes with insurance ratings from Group 7E.

Without compromising interior quality, Hyundai has decided that the new Hyundai i30 should have a longer, wider and lower body. The new i30 aims for sportier exterior proportions; that is, a 20 mm increase on its overall length (a total of 4,300 mm), 5 mm wider body (a total of 1,470 mm), and a 2,650 mm wheelbase (one of the longest in the C-segment) inherited from the original i30. For UK customers, the i30 is offered in four engine variations with five power outputs ranging from 90 to 128 PS, each model run by a six-speed transmission and CO2 emissions below 100 g/km.

Hyundai is continuously developing clean diesel technologies under the Blue Drive sub-brand. The new i30 is one of the most efficient vehicles in the C-segment with its new 1.6-liter diesel unit producing an extraordinary power to efficiency ratio, with output and emissions of 128 PS and 100 g/km, respectively. The 1.6-liter diesel engine also features Intelligent Stop & Go technologies.

The Blue Drive i30 model is perfect for fleet operators and company car drivers because it can achieve CO2 emissions from 97 g/km. According to Hyundai Motor UK’s President and CEO Tony Whitehorn, the Blue Drive i30 is the lowest priced sub-100 g/km 5-door model in the C-segment that has the lowest fuel consumption and the lowest BIK (at £876 per year for 40% tax payers).

To further prove the durability and quality of its products, UK customers are offered with an industry-leading Fiver Year Triple Care package inclusive of a five-year, fully transferable, unlimited mileage warranty, a five-year roadside assistance, and vehicle health checks for five years.
