Hyundai’s new generation i30 will arrive in a few weeks.
The progressive Korean carmaker says it will bring style, efficiency and comfort to the compact family car segment.
Blue Drive technologies are expected to be standard on all 1.6 CRDi manuals with CO2 emissions from 97g/km and claimed fuel economy up to 76.3mpg. And Hyundai expects to offer its diesel five-door hatchback with promised highest fuel economy in its segment at competitive price.
This is what it describes as real-world efficiency from 128bhp 100g/km 1.6 CRDi because it means no compromise between power and emissions. And the word is that a high level of standard specification will also feature.
First launched in 2007, the outgoing i30 was the first ‘i’ product in Hyundai’s range and introduced new standards of quality and driveability to the Hyundai product line-up. Hyundai’s new generation i30 will build on the achievements of the cars it replaces.
I will bring more details on Irish specifications and prices after an advanced test drive in February.
