The New Generation Hyundai i30 has recently arrived in UK showrooms, building on the success that the original model has achieved. It offers a more refined and stylish option with enhanced packaging and comfort, lower emissions rate and an increased level of standard feature. It also offers lower cost of ownership, being available for as low as £14,495 on the road and rising to £20,795.

The vehicle offers a range of four engines (two diesels and two petrols) with five power outputs, which range from 90 to 128ps. It also has four trim levels, namely Classic, Style, Style Nav and Active. 

Hyundai is dedicated in the development of its clean diesel technologies. The new 1.6-litre diesel unit features Intelligent Stop & Go technologies. It provides an output of 128ps and delivers emissions of only 100 g/km, making the new model as one of the most efficient automobiles in the C-segment with the remarkable power-to-efficiency ratio. 

The New Generation i30 is lower, wider and longer compared to the previous model, providing sportier exterior proportions without sacrificing the functionality of the interior. Total length is boosted by 20 mm to 4,300 mm while the width is extended by 5 mm to 1,780 mm.

Its height has been lowered by 10 mm to 1,470 mm.  The 2,650 mm wheelbase is carried over from the predecessor. Hyundai Motor UK's President and CEO Tony Whitehorn commented that the new generation i30 symbolizes "another leap forward" for the design, refinement and build quality of Hyundai.

He further stated that when matched with their "generous standard specification" and supported by their "industry leading" Five Year Triple Care guarantee, the new model "truly represents the complete package" for buyers who are searching for a high-quality automobile at an affordable price.
