24.1.2012 New Hyundai i30 arrives in UK in March
Hyundai has announced full pricing and specification for its new generation five-door i30 hatchback. Due to launch in the UK on 12th March, it will be a very cost effective model to own.
With pricing starting at £14,495 on-the-road, CO2 figures from 97 g/km and fuel economy up to 76.3 mpg, the i30 will become the lowest priced hatchback with highest fuel efficiency in the small family car segment.
The new generation Hyundai i30 will be available in four main trim levels including Classic, Active, Style and Style Nav, while customers will also have the choice of either petrol or diesel engines. There will be five engine outputs on offer with a choice of manual or automatic transmissions.
The most efficient and green option in the range is the 1.6 CRDi 110PS Blue Drive, with CO2 down to just 97g/km and fuel economy up to 76.3 mpg. This will be one of the most economical cars in the small family category, and one of the most affordable. Blue Drive technologies, including Intelligent Stop & Go Technology and other fuel saving features, come on all 1.6 CRDi manual models as standard.
As well as the 110 PS, a 128PS output unit is also available where customers get a more powerful engine without the associated drawbacks of high fuel consumption and emissions.
Hyundai's new i30 builds on the success of its predecessor. First launched in 2007, the outgoing i30 was the first 'i' product in Hyundai's range and introduced new standards of quality and driveability to the Hyundai product line-up. The new generation i30 will build on the achievements of the cars it replaces, with improvements to styling, interior quality and technology.
New standard features on the i30 include Bluetooth, LED lights, multi-function steering wheel, electrically adjustable and heated door mirrors and one-touch indicators. Active trim level, adds 15 inch alloys, cruise control, rear parking sensors and Hyundai's new dynamic Flex Steer system, which gives the driver the option of three settings namely: Comfort, Normal and Sport.
'Style' models benefit from 16 inch alloy wheels, dual zone climate control, parking sensors, rain sensing wipers, cornering lights, automatic de-fog system for front windscreen and electrically folding door mirrors with LED indicators. Topping the trim will be Style Nav, which brings a fully integrated touchscreen satellite navigation system and rear view parking camera.
Tony Whitehorn, President and CEO Hyundai Motor UK, says, "The new generation i30 represents another leap forward in terms of Hyundai's design, refinement and build quality. Coupled with Hyundai's generous standard specification along and industry leading back-up service and support in the form of the Five Year Triple Care assurance, the new generation i30 truly represents the complete package for customers looking for a high-quality vehicle at an affordable price."
