► 2017 Hyundai i30 - INTERIOR


The interior of the new i30 looks nothing like the outgoing model, with Hyundai having redesigned every single details. The dashboard now features a horizontal layout that elegance and roominess, while the materials used throughout the cabin seem to be of significantly better quality. The clean center stack features a "floating" touchscreen that integrates all navigation, media and connectivity features and gives the car a high-tech look.

The hatchback also benefits from a multifunction, heated, three-spoke steering wheel, and a new instrument cluster with white dials and blue accents. The driver’s seat has a memory function as standard, but leather remains optional as Hyundai Hyundai wants the base model to keep its affordable sticker. Three upholstery color options are available. There’s Oceanids Black with either cloth or leather seats, Slate Gray/Oceanids Black also with either cloth or leather, but with added diamond pattern, and the leather-only Indigo Blue/Oceanids Black.

Hyundai promises "segment-leading roominess" in the new i30, but doesn’t provide additional details. Naturally, both head and legroom are expected to be superior to the outgoing model. As far as luggage room goes, the i30 offers up to 395 liters (13.9 cubic feet).

Moving over to technology, standard equipment includes a dynamic rear-view camera, Bluetooth, USB, and a wireless inductive charging pad.

The optional eight-inch navigation system comes with a seven-year free subscription to TomTom LIVE, 3D maps, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.


The new-generation i30 gets no fewer than four drivetrains. The range begins with the naturally aspirated 1.4-liter four-cylinder carried over from the outgoing model. The unit cranks out 100 PS (99 horsepower) and mates to a six-speed manual transmission. Next up is the turbocharged, 1.0-liter three-cylinder that’s already available on the smaller i20. The tiny motor generates 120 PS (118 horses) and 170 Nm (125 pound-feet) of torque and also mates to the company’s six-speed manual gearbox.

The third gasoline engine is a brand-new, turbocharged, 1.4-liter four-pot. This engine will sit at the top of the lineup with an output of 140 PS (138 horsepower) and 242 Nm (178 pound-feet) of torque and will also get a seven-speed dual-clutch as an option to the standard six-speed manual. About 14 kg (31 pounds) lighter than the naturally aspirated 1.4-liter, it features a high-pressure single-scroll turbocharger integrated in the exhaust manifold for improved throttle response time and low-end torque. The new design injects fuel directly inside the cylinder, improving combustion rates for better power and fuel efficiency.

Finally, customers who favor diesel powerplants can go with the 1.6-liter turbodiesel that comes in three flavors. The base model generates 95 PS (94 horsepower), but buyers have access to 110 PS (108 horses) and 133 PS (131 horsepower) versions too. The latter cranks out 275 Nm (203 pound-feet) of torque. Just like the turbo 1.4-liter, the oil burner can be paired to either the six-speed manual or the seven-speed automatic.

The chassis also received significant updates, with highlights include a 10-percent more direct steering, multi-link rear suspension with performance-oriented shock absorbers, and bigger brakes with 288 mm (11.3-inch) discs at the front axle.


Despite all the updates, Hyundai will want to keep the i30’s pricing below that of the competition. Given the current model retails from £12,995 (about $17,330 as of September 2016) in the U.K., I’d says the third-gen model isn’t likely to have a base price of more than £14,500 (around $19,340).
