  • Recognises timeless and confident design of Hyundai’s new people’s car
  • Further validation of Hyundai Motor’s design and quality

- Hyundai Motor has once again received international recognition for its vehicle design from the prestigious iF Design Awards jury.

The New Generation Hyundai i30 has won the iF Design Award 2017 in the “Product” discipline, under the “Automobiles / Vehicles / Bikes” category. The award recognises the confident and timeless appearance of the New Generation i30 – the DNA car for Hyundai Motor representing the core of the brand in Europe. The new model further evolves Hyundai’s design language with precise and tensed lines, refined rich surfaces and a sculpted body.

We are really proud at Hyundai to receive this internationally-recognised iF Design Award for the New Generation i30. It is recognition for the passion and the enthusiasm of our designers who are bringing pride and joy to Hyundai owners. We are especially delighted to receive such a prestigious accolade for the fourth time in a row from a respected authority in design.

The New Generation Hyundai i30 features dynamic proportions with a sporty appearance and solid stance on the road, emphasised through short front and rear overhangs, a long bonnet and a tapered roof silhouette. Hyundai Motor is introducing a new design element at the front: the Cascading Grille, which will become the new family identity for Hyundai models in the future. The evolution of the previous hexagonal grille is characterised by a downward tapering gesture inspired by the flow of molten steel.

Inside, the New Generation Hyundai i30 is characterised by a clean and intuitive interior with a horizontal layout that conveys an elegant impression and a feeling of roominess. Chrome surrounding and high quality interior materials round up the calm and sophisticated atmosphere. The new floating screen of the optional eight-inch navigation touch screen is ergonomically positioned on the dashboard.

Designed, developed and produced in Europe, the New Generation Hyundai i30 is on sale across Europe since early 2017. For more than 60 years, the iF Design Awards have been recognised across the world as a symbol of design excellence. Organised by iF International Forum Design GmbH, the awards recognise outstanding design across various disciplines and categories. The jury awarded the sought-after prize to the New Generation Hyundai i30 following a rigorous judging process, involving over 5,500 entries from 59 countries.

The iF Design Award night will take place on 10 March 2017.
