A mildly worked-over diesel unit, with low-pressure exhaust gas recirculation, will be supplied in the UK but a new 2.0-litre petrol unit is unlikely to be offered. Hyundai says the European-spec petrol GDI unit is more powerful and offers better economy than the model it replaces.
Hyundai’s Flex Steer system is fitted. The setup, which premiered in the current Hyundai i30, offers three presets to configure steering feedback.
The exterior has received a number of subtle revisions, including bi-xenon headlights. The cabin features improved trim and materials and a new TFT infortainment screen is fitted. UK models will carry 17in alloy wheels as standard, while European models will be offered with 16s.
