Hyundai has released some details of the new i30. The i30 has been given a fresh new design, more connectivity and a mild hybrid powertrain. An update has also been made to the i30 N Line range too, which is still available on the i30 hatchback and fastback.
The front end has been given a broader look with a wider grille which has a 3D pattern hinting to the agility of the car. The headlights have been narrowed and can be optioned with multifaceted reflector MFR LED technology with new V-shaped LED daytime running lights (DRLs) giving the front end an up to date look.
The rear of the new i30 5-door has been received a new bumper design, meaning better aerodynamics. LED taillights have been used and feature a V-shape to continue the design at the front.
The side has been updated too, with the introduction of newly designed diamond-cut 16” or 17” alloy wheels.
The i30 N Line gets an even sportier look than before, as well as the wider stance and new headlights, the lower grille on the N Line has been enlarged, it also features floating wings to give greater aerodynamics. At the rear a wider diffuser bolsters the aggressive stance, the fog lights have been repositioned too. New 17” or 18” alloy wheel designs have been added, completing the refreshed look. Underneath, the suspension and steering have been tuned to give a more engaging drive.
The interior has been given a spruce up too, with new air vents and a new garnish colour; Pewter Grey, the seats can be trimmed in cloth or a combination of cloth and leather. More technology has been added too, a new 7” digital instrument cluster and a 10.25” navigation touchscreen feature. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are also compatible with the new system, wireless phone charging also features.
