It also comes with a heated steering wheel and a new generation audio system with iPod connectivity and integrated My Music (1GB storage) as well as Bluetooth connectivity and a USB and AUX connection.

Two interior colours (Black and Two-Tone Beige) with cloth upholstery will be offered. Nine exterior colours are available: One solid colour (Polar White), six metallic colours (Platinum Silver, Micron Grey, Ultimate Red, Ash Blue, Ara Blue, Ruby Wine) and two pearl colours (Phantom Black and Thunder Grey).

New six-speed automatic transmission and engine upgrades

A new six-speed automatic transmission is also in the offing, as well as power and torque upgrades to the overall Euro6 emissions-compliant engine line-up. The two diesel engines have been enhanced to provide more torque – 240 Nm (1.4-litre) and 260 Nm (1.6-litre) – from just 1,500 rpm.

The Continuous Variable Valve Timing (CVVT) 1.4- and 1.6-litre petrol Hyundai ‘Gamma’ family units have both had efficiency boosted, with the 1.6-litre now available with a six-speed automatic transmission, replacing the previous four-speed unit and delivering improved real-world fuel economy.
