Full pricing and specs have been released for the mid-life refresh of the Hyundai i30, now available in a choice of four trim levels priced from £15,195 to £24,695. The model is on display at the Geneva motor show.
The i30 hatchback is priced from £15,195 to £23,595, and the estate version from £16,895 to £24,695. The three-door i30 Turbo costs £22,495 and the five-door, £24,695. Buyers will be able to choose from S, SE, SE Nav and Premium trim levels.
Entry-level S trim comes with Bluetooth, USB, an auxillary input, keyless entry and front electric windows.
SE trim adds 16in alloys, cruise control, leather-trimmed steering wheel and gearknob, and rear parking sensors. Sat-nav, electric folding wing mirrors and a rear-view camera come with SE Nav.
Top-level Premium trim comes with 17in alloys, automatic lights, an electronic parking brake, dual-zone climate control, heated front seats and a heated steering wheel.
The i30 SE hatchback starts at £16,495 and SE Nav, £17,495. Prices top out at £23,595 for range-topping Premium trim with the seven-speed dual clutch transmission.
The SE estate version starts at £18,195 and SE Nav, £19,495. Premium is priced from £23,395.
The three-door i30 Turbo costs £22,495 while the five-door version is £24,695.
It was developed at the South Korean manufacturer’s Nürburgring testing facility, which opened last year. The Turbo sits at the top of a refreshed i30 range, which went on sale on 26 February.
Power for the front-wheel-drive warm hatch comes from a turbocharged version of the existing 1.6-litre ‘Gamma’ GDI petrol engine.
Hyundai says it wanted to produce a “powerful but not aggressive” engine with a “focus on driver enjoyment, not simply performance figures”.
The engine, which is mated to a six-speed manual transmission, generates 183bhp at 5500rpm and 195lb ft from 1500-4500rpm. Hyundai quotes a 0-62mph time of 8.0 seconds and a top speed of 136mph.
