Article by Christian A., on September 7, 2018

Hyundai Motor continues to make its i30 range more appealing by offering a new diesel engine that is compliant with Euro 6d Temp emission standards. For the 2019 model year, all of Hyundai’s refined i30 models are compliant with new emission standards while boasting of minor tweaks in design and latest connectivity elements.

The 2019 Hyundai i30 range – which include the i30 five-door, i30 Wagon, i30 Fastback and i30 N -- is now available with the newly developed Smartstream 1.6-liter four-cylinder diesel engine that is available in three power outputs: 96 PS (70 kW), 116 PS (85 kW) and 136 PS (100 kW).

Mated to a 6-speed manual transmission, the 96-PS version of the Smartstream 1.6-liter four-cylinder diesel engine consumes between 3.8 liters and 3.9 liters of diesel per 100 km and emits between 99 grams and 104 grams of carbon dioxide per km (combined, NEDC conversion).

The 116-PS version can be mated to either a 6-speed manual gearbox or a 7-speed dual clutch transmission. When mated to 6-speed manual gearbox, this engine consumes between 3.8 liters and 4.3 liters of diesel per 100 km and emits between 99 grams and 112 grams of carbon dioxide per km (combined, NEDC conversion). When paired to the 7-speed dual clutch transmission, this engine eats up between 4.0 liters and 4.1 liters of fuel per 100 km while letting out between 105 grams and 107 grams of carbon dioxide per km (combined, NEDC conversion).

On the other hand, the most powerful version of the Smartstream 1.6-liter four-cylinder diesel engine that delivers 136 PS (100 kW) can be paired to either a 6-speed manual gearbox or a 7-speed dual clutch transmission. Pairing this engine to a 6-speed manual gearbox results to a diesel fuel consumption figure of between 4.1 liters and 4.4 liters per 100 km, as well as carbon emission number of between 108 grams and 116 grams per km (combined, NEDC conversion). Mating this mill to 7-speed dual clutch transmission, meanwhile, results to a combined fuel consumption figures of 4.1-4.3 liters/100 km and carbon emissions rating of 107-113 g/km (combined, NEDC conversion).

Furthermore, the diesel variants of i30 five-door, i30 Wagon and i30 Fastback come with with exhaust fluid after-treatment systems, while all petrol models feature a gasoline particulate filter.

As for visual updates, the new Hyundai i30 five-door and Wagon now adopts the front bumper of the i30 Fastback bumper. In addition, the exterior of both i30 five-door and Wagon can now be finished in Stellar Blue and Olivine Grey. Optional technological elements now include the 8-inch Display Audio, which comes with Android Auto and Apple Car Play.

Meanwhile, the Hyundai i30 five-door can now be availed with the N Line trim that features exterior and interior design elements from the i30 N. This N Line trim also featured tuned mechanical set-up that includes tweaks to its suspension, brakes and engine response.

Hyundai Motor’s i30 range is now available with the new Smartstream 1.6-litre diesel engine

Hyundai Motor has refined its i30 model range with the introduction of Euro 6d Temp compliant engines and a design update.

The powertrain update makes the Hyundai i30 five-door, i30 Wagon, i30 Fastback and i30 N compliant with the latest emission standards. The newly-developed Smartstream 1.6-litre four-cylinder diesel engine reduces CO2 emissions and improves fuel efficiency, and comes with three different power outputs: 96 PS (70kW) available with a 6-speed manual transmission (6MT) (Fuel consumption combined in NEDC conversion: 3.9 – 3.8l/100km; CO2 emissions combined in NEDC conversion: 104 – 99g/km), 116 PS (85kW) available with 6MT (Fuel consumption combined in NEDC conversion: 4.3 – 3.8l/100km; CO2emissions combined in NEDC conversion: 112 – 99g/km) or the 7-speed dual clutch transmission (7DCT) (Fuel consumption combined in NEDC conversion: 4.1 – 4.0l/100km; CO2 emissions combined in NEDC conversion: 107 – 105g/km), and 136 PS (100kW) with 6MT (Fuel consumption combined in NEDC conversion: 4.4 – 4.1l/100km; CO2emissions combined in NEDC conversion: 116 - 108g/km) or 7DCT (Fuel consumption combined in NEDC conversion: 4.3 – 4.1l/100km; CO2emissions combined in NEDC conversion: 113 – 107/km).

Along with the new Smartstream engine, the company equips the i30 five-door, i30 Wagon and i30 Fastback diesel variants with exhaust fluid after-treatment systems. The diesel exhaust fluid, a mix of urea and water, contributes to decreasing nitrogen oxide emissions. At the same time, all petrol engines of the i30 line-up have been equipped with a gasoline particulate filter.

Besides the technological update, Hyundai has refreshed the exterior design of its i30 five-door and Wagon with a new front bumper. The front of both cars now features the charismatic i30 Fastback bumper. Its sleek and elegant lines enhance the progressive and timeless look of the i30 five-door and Wagon, harmonising the design of the i30 range. Additionally, Hyundai has updated the exterior colour range of the i30 five-door and Wagon to include Stellar Blue and Olivine Grey.

The i30 range is a stronghold for our success in Europe. To become the number one Asian car brand by 2021, we not only invest in cutting-edge technologies like with our Kona Electric or All-New NEXO, we also seek to constantly improve our best-selling models to meet our customer’s needs in terms of fuel efficiency and appealing design.
