Fluidic sculpture is the design philosophy that underpins every Hyundai. The i30 is another step forward for this progressive concept, as just one glance at the sporty, dynamic exterior bears out. Energetic belt line mouldings emphasise the natural flow from front to back, with the car conveying an impression of movement even while projecting a voluminous stance. Aerodynamics are second to none, with low overall height not only contributing to the style, but also to some of the best fuel economy on the market.
The new i30’s striking hexagonal grille tells you straight away this is a Hyundai. While the body shape departs from the traditional hatchback design, the stylishly curving tailgate lifts to reveal a roomy, versatile trunk that more than takes care of your luggage needs. Because style is all about turning heads, this is a car with eye-catching features throughout. Up front, lights provide a touch of class while enhancing your visibility. At the rear, a rakishly designed spoiler, incorporating an integral rear brake light, adds to the refinement.
Take a seat in the i30 and the comfort and space are such that you forget this is a compact car. Cabin room is more than you’ll find in competitor cars, while comfortable seats - fully adjustable for the driver provide firm, well-upholstered support.
The climate is kept cool and fresh whatever the outside temperature, thanks to dual zone air conditioning, rear air ventilation and a cluster ionizer. Meanwhile, a range of stylish colour and seat options are yours to choose from.
