New i30: Refreshed design

  • Design of the second generation i30 was rated number one purchase reason
  • New i30’s design enhancements to increase its appeal
  • Refreshed, sophisticated exterior design demonstrates latest Hyundai family face

- Surveys of existing owners and potential buyers of i30 confirm that the Fluidic Sculpture design philosophy is greatly admired.

It mirrors nature’s flowing lines, giving Hyundai vehicles impactful three-dimensional presence. The second-generation i30 was regarded as being “stylish and modern”, “eye catching” and “conveying elegance and dynamism”, becoming a landmark for the brand when customers rated design as the number one purchase reason.

The exterior and interior design have been refreshed for the New i30. At the front there is a new accentuated hexagonal grille, while the profile is refreshed by new design of wheel trims (15-inch) and alloy wheels (16-,17-,18-inch). New Bi-Xenon headlamps also give the 2015 model a new look.

When designing the second-generation i30, we used strong, fluid lines to sculpt a car that exudes a sense of constant motion, even when stationary. We gave the car a bold stance, transmitting a confident attitude through sporty characteristics and dynamic proportions.The newly designed hexagonal grille’s appearance is a unique identifier for our brand and defines the New i30 as a Hyundai family member. The jewel-like front headlamps that flank the grille add a strong personality to the vehicle, as well as a sense of refinement and luxury.
