Hyundai introduced the updated i30February 26, 2020
The updated South Korean novelty boasts an engine with soft hybrid technology and an expanded list of security systems. The official presentation of the car will be held next month.
Hyundai has published all the information about the updated i30 in all three body styles: hatchback, fastback and station wagon. All of these new versions are also available in the N Line version. The novelty boasts a revised front end design, which also received thinner LED headlights with V-shaped daytime running lights. The false radiator grille has been expanded and now has a bizarre “three-dimensional pattern”, giving the updated i30 a more upscale look when viewed from the front.
As expected from the restyled version of the model, the side profile essentially has not changed, but new design options for alloy wheels have appeared, which are available in sizes from 16 to 18 inches.
Hyundai designers also changed the appearance of the rear bumper and the taillight graphics – it is also made in the form of the letter V. Three new body shades, called Dark Night, Sunset Red and Silky Bronze, complete the external changes.
Inside, there is a new 7-inch virtual tidy display, which is combined with a 10.25-inch touch screen infotainment system with support for Android Auto and Apple CarPlay services, as well as wireless connection. The Hyundai i30 2021 has the most advanced safety features, including assistance with driving through a lane, warning of the vehicle starting to move, assistance in preventing a rear collision, and assistance in preventing a collision in the blind zone.
118-liter turbocharged three-cylinder engine rated at 118 hp (172 Nm), can be equipped with a soft hybrid system 48 V or not. In both cases, the engine can operate either with a six-speed manual gearbox or with a new seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission.
Instead of the old 1.4-liter turbocharged gasoline engine, a 1.5-liter unit with 158 hp will be offered (253 Nm). The updated Hyundai i30 can also be bought with a 1.6-liter diesel engine rated at 113 hp. (280 Nm), which will work with a manual gearbox or DCT “robot”. There is also a more powerful 1.6-liter diesel with a capacity of 134 hp.
The facelift of the 2021 Hyundai i30 will be officially presented next week at the Geneva Motor Show, and a more productive N-version of the model should appear in the coming months.
