The New Generation Hyundai i30 – Taking Design to a New Level
Style and design are some of the most important factors that European customers take into account when buying a new car. This is one of the reasons why Hyundai’s range is so popular, including here in Ireland. With the new generation Hyundai i30, the company is taking it to a new level, though.
This is a car built specifically for European customers. This means it was designed, developed, tested, and then manufactured in Europe which a huge emphasis placed on getting the style and design right. The result is a car with an aerodynamically looking shape that is attractive and beautifully sculpted with precise lines. The cascading front grille is one of the most striking differences you will notice between this i30 and previous models – expect to see it on other Hyundai models too in the coming years.
Technology and Performance
Hyundai is renowned for making cars that are reliable and packed full of technology, and the new generation Hyundai i30 is no different. For a start, it comes with Hyundai’s industry-leading 5-year unlimited mileage warranty.
The technology available puts it way ahead of other options in the class. That tech includes connectivity features for both Apple and Android devices through Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. You can even wirelessly charge your phone while you are driving.
There is a five-inch screen as standard with an option to upgrade to an eight-inch screen. A satellite navigation system is also available.
There are safety features available in the new generation Hyundai i-30 too. This includes autonomous emergency braking, a system that helps you stay in lane, an alert if the car senses you have lost attention, and a blind spot detection system. There is also smart cruise control available which is radar-controlled.
Driving and Comfort
As with the previous version of the i30, the new generation Hyundai i30 is very flexible and versatile. This is what makes it an appealing choice for all age groups including single people, families, and more. Hyundai i30 drivers are attracted to its efficiency, practicality, and levels of comfort.
Inside there is plenty of space, including in the boot, and the interior is attractively designed. All the controls for the driver, for example, are easy to access and use.
The car itself is light and well balanced so delivers responsive steering and handling. The brakes are also more powerful than previous models too making it a car you will enjoy driving. This includes driving short distances around town or long journeys.
There are a number of engine options available depending on your needs. This includes three petrol engines, one of which is a 1.4 litre T-GDI which delivers 138bhp. There is also a 1.6 litre turbo diesel.
For Hyundai, the new generation i30 marks a change in emphasis – cars created with the European driver in mind. It is the perfect choice if you want a car that looks great while also being efficient, comfortable, intelligent, driveable, and reliable. For us, the new generation Hyundai i30 doesn’t just take things to a new level in regard to the Hyundai range – it takes things to a new level for the car industry in general.
