It is a busy time for Hyundai following its i10 winning the Continental Irish Small Car of the Year 2015 award.
The Hyundai distributor has ambitious plans to rise to third position in the Irish new car market with a share of 9.5 per cent by the end of next year.
Hyundai Ireland has recently launched the new i20 hatchback here, with an entry level ‘Classic’ price of €15,995 for the 1.25-litre petrol (75hp ) version.
In addition the latest new model announcements from Hyundai Motor Europe’s Product Momentum 2017 launch programme have been revealed. These include the new i40 and i40 tourer, the new i20 coupe, and the addition of a new i30 turbo.
New i40 tourer and saloon
Hyundai Motor Europe has today introduced its new i40 tourer and saloon, enhancing the brand’s product line-up in Europe’s competitive D-segment.
New Hyundai i20 coupe
For the first time Hyundai has created a three-door B-segment car that is significantly differentiated from the five-door model. Its dynamic exterior and striking interior design are intended to attract young, lifestyle-oriented consumers, extending the appeal of the new generation i20.
New generation i20 coupe has its own unique silhouette. The raked A, B, and C pillars are markedly different from the five-door model, providing the coupe with a more dynamic profile.
New i30 turbo
And finally for now, Hyundai has introduced a range of enhancements to the new i30 range, including the addition of a range-topping i30 turbo, a more performance-oriented model delivering a Nürburgring-tuned 186PS and featuring exclusive sporty design features.
The complete range has been enhanced with improved engines, a new seven-speed dual-clutch transmission, safety and comfort features and refreshed exterior design, intended to make Hyundai’s top-selling model even more appealing.
On sale from 2015, the new i30 range boasts improved engine efficiency across the new car’s three bodystyles: three-door, five-door and tourer. The new model range offers fuel consumption as low as 78.4mpg and CO2 emissions as low as 94g/km.
