Hyundai shared the official photos of the i30, which it will introduce at the Geneva Motor Show next week. Featuring a new design and advanced connectivity, the New i30 also offers a lightweight 48-volt light hybrid option. With this new feature, the Hyundai i30, which will increase fuel efficiency, will also attract performance enthusiasts with its sporty N Line body kit.
Among the characteristic features of the car, which has a wider and more modern appearance with some changes on the body, the new generation front grille stands out as the most striking detail. This grill, which is used in two different ways in N Line and normal versions, is offered in combination with a large air inlet bumper. Thus, the design, which has a more elegant and more aesthetic structure, also shows integrity with the new generation versatile V-shaped LED headlights. On the back, aerodynamic innovations stand out. Developed for more driving performance and aerodynamics, the diffuser bumper, the dual-outlet end silencer and the black plastic parts that reinforce the sporty appearance give the car a brand new identity. The new i30 N Line comes with a new type of 17 and 18-inch wheel design that expresses speed even when parked.
New Engines and 48-volt light hybrid system
The new i30 N Line Hatchback and Fastback will be available with new 1.5 lt T-GDi (160 PS) and 1.6 lt diesel (136 PS) engines for a more dynamic ride. The renewed vehicle also has improvements in the suspension and steering system.
Hyundai also combines the 1.0-liter T-GDI 120-horsepower option it previously offered with a 7-speed DCT transmission. This option will also feature a 48-volt light hybrid feature. The 48-volt hybrid system developed by Hyundai for fuel economy will be offered as standard on 1.6-liter diesel engines and will be sold with a 6-speed Intelligent Manual Transmission (iMT) or a 7-speed dual clutch transmission (7DCT).
Another version of the diesel engines is the 115-liter unit with 1.6 horsepower. This engine can be preferred with 6-speed manual and 7-speed DCT transmission options.
