The popular 5-door hatchback, which competes against the VW Golf, Ford Focus, Opel Astra and many others in the crowded C-segment, will receive mid-cycle facelift for the 2020 model year.
Set to be officially unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show this March, the refreshed Hyundai i30 will not only incorporate some cosmetic updates, but also gain new engines and transmissions!
As a matter of fact, the upgrades under the bonnet will be rather big, with two new state-of-the-art gasoline engines and one new gearbox joining the range.
Listed below is the 2020 Hyundai i30 engine line-up, according to the leaked document that Hyundai-blog.com have obtained prior to the car’s official debut.
