The 2017 Hyundai i30 has been teased in official pictures ahead of its global reveal on 7 September.
The new pictures confirm that the future hatchback model will evolve the design seen on the Hyundai i40, with more angular lights and a wide-mouthed front grille the standout exterior features.
There are also vertical day running lights on the bumper, a shapelier bonnet and fewer unpainted plastic parts on the exterior, giving the new i30 a more premium look than its predecessor.
Peter Schreyer, Hyundai’s president and chief design officer said of the new model: “From a design perspective, we haven’t just considered one customer; we have focused on a wide range of different people. This model showcases an evolution of Hyundai Motor’s design language with natural flowing lines, refined surfaces and a sculpted body to create a timeless appearance.”
