Hyundai has displayed the upcoming i30 at the ongoing Auto Expo 2016. The new i30 is based on the Hyundai’s ‘Fluidic Sculpture’ philosophy and it looks quite premium from both inside and outside. The first thing one would notice about the car is the swept back stance. The base of the windscreen is pulled forwards and lowered, which also lends a streamlined appearance to the car.
The front fascia of the hatch is dominated by a large grille flanked by sophisticated sharp headlights. The LED running lights also add a jewel like visual appeal to the front. It features MacPherson struts at the front and a FlexSteer system that provides the assistance supplied to the electric power steering via three operating / driving modes.
The interior of the Hyundai i30 features a cockpit-like cabin which is equipped with a swoopy dashboard. The dashboard has silver trim pieces. The top spec model also gets a panoramic sunroof, a high-resolution TFT SuperVision instrument cluster, and keyless entry along rain/light sensors. It offers a large boot space of 378 litres. Fold the rear seats flat and you can get a whopping 1316 litre space at your disposal to carry all that you need during your journey. The three driving modes include comfort, normal and sport. The steering mounted controls add some extra comfort to the driver.
The Hyundai i30 measures 4300mm in length, 1780mm in width and 1470mm in height, and it has a large wheelbase of 2650mm. The hatchback is available in both petrol and diesel guise. The oil burner is offered in three engine configurations – 1.4L producing 90PS, 110PS 1.6-litre that develops 128PS and a new 1.6L with better fuel efficiency. Similarly, the petrol version is also available in three engines – 1.4-litre producing 100PS, 1.6L that develops 120PS and another 1.6L that produces 135PS. All the engines are paired to a six-speed manual and six-speed automatic transmission gearbox.
