The New Generation Hyundai i30: Coherent and Timeless Design

- The New Generation i30 evolves Hyundai’s design language with a timeless and sculptural design combining precise, tensed lines and refined rich surfaces.

The combination of excellent functionality such as roominess, good visibility and comfort is complimented by a sensuous and confident expression of design. 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.

Exterior Design

The upright front of the new Generation i30 is confident and expressive, celebrating the new Cascading Grille that is characterised by a downward tapering gesture inspired by the flow of molten steel. The grille features chrome-plated dots for a sophisticated appearance that enhance the satin chrome surrounding on the standard version. In combination with the three-projector LED (low and high beam) headlamps and the vertical LED daytime running lights with indicator function, the New Generation i30 has a strong visual presence. To further enhance this, projector-type front fog lamps are integrated into the air curtains.

With its harmonious proportions, short front and rear overhangs, a long bonnet and a tapered roof silhouette, the car gets a sporty appearance and solid stance on the road. The New Generation i30 features a sophisticated sleek character line that flows naturally from the headlamp along the almost horizontal belt line to connect with the LED rear lamps and further wraps around the rear for a timeless appearance. The black rear spoiler enhances aerodynamics and makes the New Generation i30 look even more dynamic and compact. With a Coefficient of Drag of only 0.30, Aerodynamic performance is enhanced through several measures including an Active Air Flap behind the front grille and Air Curtains on each side of the front bumper to enhance airflow and reduce turbulences in the wheel housing.

Its muscular wide rear design with a sculpted and 3-dimensional appearance and the signature light graphic incorporating the high-positioned reflectors and fog lamps set the car apart on the road. The New Generation Hyundai i30 is available with 17-inch two tone 10-spoke alloy wheels, 16-inch two-tone 10-spoke alloy wheels or 15-inch alloy ro steel wheels.

In order for every customer to pick their favourite colour there are in total twelve exterior colours consisting of three pearl choices: Stargazing Blue, Micron Gray, Phantom Black; and seven metallic choices: Demitasse Brown, Intense Copper, Moon Rock, Fiery Red, Platinum Sliver, Ara Blue and White Sandplus two solid choices: Engine Red and Polar White.

Interior Design

Getting into the New Generation Hyundai i30, customers are greeted 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 floating screen of the optional eight-inch navigation touch screen on the dashboard integrates all navigation, media and connectivity features and allows drivers to stay always tuned to the traffic ahead thanks to its ergonomic position. The new multifunction three-spoke steering wheel allows easy and intuitive operation of all functions through an ergonomically positioned operation controls and can be heated for enhanced comfort. The climate and temperature control is positioned conveniently in the centre console and can be easily operated through the dials without distracting the driver.

The New Generation i30 offers plenty of space for passengers and luggage alike and does not compromise on interior roominess for its sporty exterior design. The i30 makes driving comfortable for all passengers with segment-leading roominess. The feeling of space is enhanced by the optional panoramic glass sunroof which allows to tilt or to slide open.
