The all-new Hyundai i30 will cost from £14,495 when it goes on sale in March. The replacement for the now four-year-old i30 is available with four trim levels - Classic, Active, Style and Style Nav – and comes equipped with a range of new diesel and petrol engines.
Included in the engine line-up is a frugal 1.6 CRDi Blue Drive unit, which comes in two power outputs and features stop-start as standard. In 108bhp guise, the engine emits 97g/km CO2 and achieves 76.3mpg, while the more powerful 126bhp variant emits 100g/km Co2 and "over 70pmg" according to Hyundai. While the i30's new petrol engines are expected to be cleaner and more efficient, official figures have not been revealed.
Standard equipment across the Hyundai i30 model range includes voice-activated Bluetooth, LED daytime running lights, a multi-function steering wheel and electric and heated door mirrors. Hyundai’s hill-start assist system is also on the list.
Active-spec models add 15-inch alloys, cruise control, rear-parking sensors and three driver setting options - Comfort, Normal and Sport – while Style models get larger 16-inch alloys, as well as climate control, front parking sensors, LED indicators and rain-sensing wipers.
Topping the i30 range is the Style Nav model, prices of which start from £17,595. On top of the equipment you’ll find on the i30 Style, an integrated touchscreen sat-nav system and rear view parking camera is included.
Hyundai’s UK CEO Tony Whitehorn commented: “The new-generation i30 represents another leap forward in terms of Hyundai’s design, refinement and build quality" and that "it's the complete package for customers looking for a high-quality vehicle at an affordable price.”
