New Hyundai i30 five-door and i30 Tourer - Connected and caring

- Smart connectivity features that most customers require make the i30 a smart, rewarding choice. As standard, the i30 is equipped with a premium audio system and a five-inch capacitive LCD touch screen

For the 2019 model year, SE trim and above now has an eight-inch display audio system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone connectivity as standard, as well as an integrated dynamic rear-view camera.

Both systems enable users to connect their devices to deliver and control music, telephone or navigation functions on-screen. Bluetooth connectivity on SE models upwards now incorporates voice recognition via smartphone. Seamless connectivity allows drivers and passengers to stay connected while remaining focused on the road. To ensure that occupants’ phones are always charged, the i30 also offers a wireless inductive charging pad (Qi standard) for mobile phones and a USB port located in the closing 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 of displaying photos from a connected USB stick.

Highest active safety

The i30 features the latest active safety features to comply with the highest European safety standards: Autonomous Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection (standard), Cruise Control, Blind Spot Detection, Rear Cross Traffic Alert, Lane Keeping Assist System (standard), and High Beam Assist (standard). The latest Driver Attention Alert system (standard) means the i30 has all available active safety features for Hyundai Motor vehicles and is the car with the most advanced safety package.

Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB).

The i30 is also fitted with AEB including Pedestrian Recognition, an advanced active safety feature that alerts drivers to emergency situations, braking autonomously if required. Using front radar and camera sensors, AEB operates in three stages. Initially warning the driver visually and acoustically, it can subsequently control the brake according to the collision danger stage, and can ultimately apply maximum braking force to avoid a collision or minimise damage when a collision is unavoidable.

Driver Attention Alert (DAA)

Driver Attention Alert is a driver protection feature which helps monitor driving patterns in order to detect inattentive or fatigued driving and prevent potential accidents. The system analyses various vehicle signals such as steering angle, steering torque, vehicle 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.

Blind Spot Detection (BSD)

Also using radar technology, the Blind Spot Detection (BSD) 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 Alert (RCTA)

Using the BSD sensors the RCTA 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, RCTA alerts the driver visually and acoustically.

Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS)

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

High Beam Assist (HBA)

When switched to automatic mode, HBA 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 i30 benefits from 22% increased rigidity over its predecessor, with 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 i30 is manufactured as one single component. In the previous generation car, 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 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.
