New Generation Hyundai i30 - Connected and Caring

Press material

Smart connectivity features that most customers require make the New Generation i30 a smart, rewarding choice.

Customers can choose between the 3.8-inch monochrome radio with RDS function, available with Bluetooth and DAB, the eight-inch Display Audio with RDS, Bluetooth and Rear view camera, available with DAB and featuring Apple Carplay / Android Auto standard or the eight-inch AVN including the features of the Display Audio with integrated navigation and LIVE services.

For drivers who want to connect their smartphones with the eight-inch navigation system, the New Generation i30 provides both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Both systems enable users to connect their devices to deliver and control music, telephone or navigation functions on-screen. Seamless connectivity allows drivers and passengers to stay connected while remaining focused on the road.

To ensure that occupants’ phones are always charged, the New Generation i30 also offers a wireless inductive charging pad (Qi standard) for mobile phones and a USB port located in the centre console.

The navigation system comes with a seven-year free subscription to LIVE services. LIVE Services offer updated information in real time: weather, traffic, speed cameras and online searches for points of interest. The navigation system features 3D maps and is capable to display photos if you connect an USB stick.

Hyundai SmartSense: Highest Active Safety

The New Generation i30 features Hyundai SmartSense active safety and driving assistance technologies to comply with the highest European safety standards: Front Collision-Avoidance Assist (standard), Smart Cruise Control with Stop & Go, Blind Spot Collision Warning, Rear CrossTraffic Collision Warning, Lane Keeping Assist (standard), Intelligent Speed Limit Warning and High Beam Assist (standard). New to the Hyundai line-up is the Driver Attention Warning (standard) giving the New Generation i30 all available active safety features available for Hyundai Motor vehicles and making it the car with the most advanced safety package and the longest list of standard active safety features in its class.

Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist (FCA) with pedestrian detection

The i30 is fitted with FCA, an advanced active safety feature that alerts drivers to emergency situations, braking autonomously if required. FCA operates in three stages. Initially warning the driver visually and acoustically, it controls the brake according to the collision danger stage, and applies maximum braking force right before the to avoid a collision or minimise damage when a collision is unavoidable. The optional pedestrian detection is activated, when a vehicle or pedestrian is sensed in front of the car, operating at speeds of 10 km/h or above.

Driver Attention Warning (DAW)

The i30 features the Driver Attention Warning, a driver protection feature which helps monitor driving patterns in order to detect reckless or fatigued driving and prevent potential accidents. The system analyses various vehicle signals such as steering angle, steering torque, vehicle’s position in the lane and driving time. In addition, the driver can adjust a user-selectable setting for the system’s sensitivity. If the system detects inattentive driving patterns an audible sound and message on the instrument display panel will alert the driver.

Smart Cruise Control with Stop & Go (SCC w/ S&G)

Using front radar sensors, SCC with Stop & Go keeps a constant speed and distance from the vehicle ahead by automatically accelerating and braking. If the traffic comes to a halt, the Stop & Go system applies the brake until the car comes to a stand still and accelerates to the desired speed as soon as the road is clear. If the vehicle stops for longer than three seconds the driver has to activate the system again by the steering wheel controls or by briefly pressing the accelerator pedal. The system operates from 0 to 180 km/h.

Blind-Spot Collision Warning (BCW)

Also using radar technology, the Blind-Spot Collision Warning (BCW) with Lane Change Assist monitors the rear corners and, if another vehicle is detected, a visual alert appears on the exterior mirrors. If the driver then activates the indicators an audible signal is emitted. This also applies for a lane change situation when another vehicle is detected.

Rear Cross-Traffic Collision Warning (RCCW)

Using the BSW sensors the Rear Cross-Traffic Collision Warning system reduces the risk of collision with approaching traffic when reversing out of narrow areas with low visibility. Using a radar to scan a 180-degree area behind the vehicle for approaching cross-traffic, RCCW alerts the driver visually and acoustically.

Lane Keeping Assist (LKA)

The Lane Keeping Assist alerts the driver in unsafe movements at over 60 km/h by sensing the car’s position. The Lane Departure Warning (LDW) sounds an alarm before the car moves over white, grey and blue lines as well as Bott’s dots on the road, while the LKA warns the driver acoustically and visually before inducing corrective steering to guide the driver back to a safe position.

Intelligent Speed Limit Warning (ISLW)

The Intelligent Speed Limit Warning uses the front camera and information from the navigation system to identify road speed signs and display the speed limit in real time. The information is displayed both in the navigation system display as well as in the TFT cluster.

High Beam Assist (HBA)

When switched to automatic mode, High Beam Assist detects both oncoming vehicles and vehicles in the same lane ahead at night and changes to low-beam as appropriate, reducing blinding effects on other drivers. Whenever there are no vehicles detected, the system automatically re-activates the high beams, maximising the driver’s range of vision.

Highest Passive Safety

Featuring 53% Advanced High Strength Steel, the New Generation i30 benefits from increased rigidity by 22% and a high impact energy absorption and minimised distortion to protect passengers in the event of a collision.

Thanks to an improved hot stamping method, the side outer reinforcement of the New Generation i30 is manufactured as one single component. Previously, there were five combined components. The completely new technology reduces weight by 4.1 kg and increases rigidity and impact energy absorption.

Around the interior of the New Generation i30, a total of seven airbags are installed, including a knee airbag for the driver. Beside the six standard airbags (two front airbags, two side airbags and two curtain airbags from first to second row protecting both driver and passengers), the knee airbag is an additional safety feature for the driver in the event of a front collision.
