Hyundai has unveiled its third-generation i30 hatchback ahead of its public debut at the Paris motor show.

Reflecting Hyundai’s continuing maturation as a brand, the i30 features more refined design, new engines and gearboxes and state-of-the-art safety technology.

The previous i30 has been a big success for the brand in Europe, and has contributed strongly to the company’s continued growth across the continent. Hyundai is at pains to point out that the new i30 is “designed, developed, tested and manufactured in Europe”. Its design is expected to set a blueprint for future models, particularly the large Audi-esque grille.

So far Hyundai has only released images and details of the five-door hatch version, but has said that the i30 will “become a family of unique products”. This is likely to mean saloon and estate versions as well as possibly a three-door hatch version. The i30 will also form the basis for the first high-performance model of the new N brand, which will take on the likes of the Volkswagen Golf R.

   

UK pricing and specification is yet to be revealed, but the i30 will be available with a choice of petrol and diesel engines, including the company’s new 1.4-litre turbo petrol engine which features direct fuel injection and a turbo relocated to be integrated in the exhaust manifold for improve efficiency. Buyers will also have the choice of six-speed manual and seven-speed double-clutch automatic gearboxes.

The new i30 is expected to come standard with autonomous emergency braking, along with a suite of active safety measures which may be optional or standard in the UK.

In terms of connectivity, models fitted with the optional satnav will be able to connect to smartphones via Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, operated via an eight-inch touchscreen. Navigation mapping includes a seven-year subscription to TomTom LIVE for real-time traffic and weather updates. Without the satnav, the car will have a five-inch touchscreen with Bluetooth but without more advanced connectivity features.

The brand claims the new i30 offers “segment-leading roominess” and a boot which can swallow 395 litres of luggage.
