Hyundai has added a stop-start system to its revised i30 range.
The main model to benefit is the i30 estate. Its CO2 emissions drop from 124g/km to 119g/km when equipped with a stop-start 1.6 CRDi engine. This qualifies it for £35 road tax, while company car tax rates on the model shrink from 18 per cent benefit-in-kind to 13 per cent.
Stop-start is now a £200 option on all manual models in the i30 range, with Hyundai claiming it improves fuel consumption by 10 per cent in the hatchback model and 14 per cent in the estate.
The Korean firm has also added a new entry-level model to the range. The Hyundai i30 Classic will cost from £12,000 when equipped with the 1.4-litre petrol engine and from £12,950 with the 1.6 diesel. Standard kit includes ESP, air conditioning and electric front windows.
The new i30 range is available to order now, with the first deliveries starting on 4 January.
