Despite the “heavy” camouflage, which was on the seen prototype of the South Korean novelty, we can already notice some important changes – for example, updated front optics. Hyundai may present an updated hatchback in March this year at the Geneva Motor Show.

  The third-generation Hyundai i30 has been on the market for a little over three years, so it is logical that the automaker is preparing to slightly update its rather popular model. This is a particularly correct decision if we take into account that the German Volkswagen Group has just introduced a new generation of its Golf hatchback and Octavia liftback / station wagon, in addition, soon an updated version of the Seat Leon hatchback is waiting for us. So to maintain competitiveness, the South Korean i30 needs to be updated urgently.

This “spy” video shows the prototype of the model in a fairly dense camouflage both front and rear. Despite the difficult
masking, it is easy to see that the headlights were redesigned from scratch and are likely to use fully LED technology.

 Hyundai’s signature cascade grille is also partially visible. The front and rear bumpers remain hidden under two-layer camouflage, but we also expect some changes in these areas.

In addition, the taillights will also receive some changes and may “switch” to fully LED technology, which is exactly what many i30 competitors have done. Hyundai can add a few more body paint options and new light alloy wheel designs to make its compact hatchback feel more confident in front of competitors.

 Expect about the same changes for the stylish i30 in the fastback, which we rarely talk about, as well as the i30 station wagon. All the same style changes are also true for the high-performance i30 N, which is also being tested at full speed by the company. This car should receive the long-awaited dual-clutch automatic transmission.
