HYUNDAI i30 Blue Drive
|Technology:||Petrol and Diesel|
|Launch Date:||March 2012|
First revealed at the 2011 Frankfurt Motor Show, the new i30 will be rival to VW's Golf and the Ford Focus. Out of 16 different model versions, the 1.6 CRDi 110PS diesel engined Blue Drive version offers CO2 emissions of just 97 g/km with fuel economy raised to 76.3 mpg. The model range starts at just £14,495, but the 97g/km variant costs £16,895, making the new i30 one of the cheapest and most fuel efficient models in the small family car category.
Several fuel saving technologies have been used, such as automatic start-stop and lo rolling-resistance tyres, and improvements have been made to both interior and exterior styling and performance statistics.
