The standard equipment on the S model includes keyless entry, Bluetooth connectivity with controls on the steering wheel, air conditioning, and USB and AUX connections.
Moving up to the Hyundai i30 SE gets you additional features such as auto cruise control with speed limiter, 16-inch alloy wheels (depending on variant) rear parking sensors, drivers electric lumbar support, and a leather wrapped steering wheel and gear knob, and all for a starting price of £16,495.
The SE Nav trim comes with a navigation system and rearview camera.
The i30 Premium comes with a host of standard features additional to those on the lower trim levels. These include HID headlights, 17-inch alloy wheels, dual zone climate control, smart key with start/stop engine button, and heated seats and steering wheel.
New Hyundai i30 Turbo
A first for the i30 range is the Turbo model that comes equipped with a 1.6-liter turbocharged engine that cranks out 186 PS, and takes the car from 0-60 in 8 seconds.
As well as the Turbo sports bodykit, this model also comes with 18-inch alloy wheels, red stitching on the leather steering wheel, a Turbo badge, satellite navigation, sports suspension, black and red cloth/artificial leather sports seats, and LED tail lights.
Consumer can choose from a 3- or 5-door Turbo, while the other trim levels are available in 5-door and Tourer form.
There will be 5 different engine choices across the i30 range, with power output coming in between 100PS and 186PS.
There are a pair of diesel engines on offer, both of which are 1.6-liter units with different power outputs: 110PS and 136PS. Petrol lovers can choose from a 1.4-litre 100PS or 1.6-litre 120PS naturally-aspirated engine, or the new 1.6-litre 186PS Turbo-GDI engine.
The 1.6-liter diesel engine can be mated to the all-new 7-speed dual clutch transmission.
The new 7-DCT has been brought in to replace the 6-speed automatic gearbox, delivering improved fuel efficiency and acceleration in the process. Also greatly improved is the CO2 number generated by the 1.6-liter CRDi Blue Drive, going from 145 g/km to 109 g/km.
Fuel consumption across the i30 range is also improved with the addition of the Integrated Stop & Go (ISG) system, an alternator management system, low-rolling resistance tires, and an active air flap in the front grille that reduces drag. That all adds up to an i30 that delivers emissions as low as 94 g/km and 78.4 mpg on the combined cycle.
UK customers are going to benefit from the design, engine, and equipment upgrades delivered by Hyundai’s European design team.
The one design element that really stands out and separates this one from the outgoing model is the now familiar hexagonal grille.
Newly designed alloy wheels, and a pair of new exterior colors – Polar White and Jet Black (i30 Turbo only) – help increase the appeal of the new model.
