Hyundai has revealed the prices and specifications of the new i30.
Starting at £20,695, the new i30 has been updated and boasts striking exterior and interior updates, as well as an electrified engine line-up, to enhance performance and efficiency.
Ashley Andrew, Managing Director, Hyundai Motor UK, commented: “The i30 was the first of Hyundai’s “I” cars to be introduced and is now on its 4th generation. Since its introduction in 2007, i30 has attracted a diverse customer base from those looking for a practical, well equipped and affordable family car through to enthusiast drivers searching for a dose of excitement in the latest hot hatch, as well as featuring on a number of the UK’s Police fleets. With the new i30 refreshing the model now and a new i30N soon, its popularity looks set to remain.”

The new i30 sports a sleek silhouette, with slimmer headlights dominating the front, which are accompanied with new, V-shaped LED daytime running lights for a piercing finish.
To the rear, the bumper has been redesigned to optimise performance and dynamism, with the 16-inch or 17- inch diamond cut alloy wheels finishing off the sporty style.
Engine and Performance

As standard, the new Hyundai i30 features a 6 speed Intelligent Manual Transmission, but this can be upgraded to the 7-speed Dual Clutch Transmission.
