Distinctive design

Whichever angle you’re admiring, New i30 exhibits a bold and athletic design. Its distinctive fluidic styling and subtly sloping roof convey a constant sense of motion. From the redesigned hexagonal front grille, sweeping front headlights follow the character lines of the bonnet and wheel arches, with the curvaceous rear lights wrapping around the boot.

To complement its kerb appeal, New i30 is available in a number of vibrant exterior colours to suit your personality. The range also features four trim levels – choose from S, SE, SE Nav or the top-of-the-range Premium model.

What’s great looks without a few stylish extras? New i30 has been designed to be noticed and striking – so LED daytime running lights set the tone perfectly. Hugging the bottom of the fog lights, the jewel-like bulbs ensure your visibility during daylight hours. Choosing SE, SE Nav or Premium models means you’ll be treated to intricately designed alloy wheels, with Premium models also offering LED tail lights. 

Hot Grille

The hexagonal front grille is bold, instantly recognisable and a stylish centrepiece. S, SE and SE Nav models feature subtle hints of chrome flanking the Hyundai badge and number plate, while Premium models offer a dark chrome surround with full chrome inserts to add an air of true quality.

Full Beam Ahead

When night comes, visibility is everything. So New i30 S, SE and SE Nav feature standard projection headlights with static cornering lights, illuminating the kerb as you turn into corners. The Premium model goes one step further, offering powerful HID Xenon headlights which turn on automatically, provide auto levelling and an Adaptive Front Light System which swivels the headlamps as you turn, giving a better field of view. Headlamp washers are also fitted to help ensure a clear view ahead at all times.

Light Fantastic

Why should headlights have all the fun? New i30’s rear lights have been designed specifically to maximise luminescence, with the i30 Premium boasting a stunning set of LED tail lights, which will undoubtedly win followers.

Keep Calm and Drive On

Everything within the interior of New i30 has been crafted to create a comfortable and enjoyable driving environment. Tactile soft-touch surfaces, quality upholstery and a gloss black and alloy effect fascia trim create a premium feel throughout. The centre console and driving controls have been intuitively positioned to place everything at your fingertips, while cool blue lighting reduces eyestrain on longer journeys.

Room For All

Sporty on the outside yet surprisingly roomy on the inside, New i30 offers ample head, leg and shoulder room wherever you sit. Plus there’s more than enough space in the generous boot – 378 litres – which means you can fit in the weekly shop and all the kids’ stuff, or even two large suitcases if you’re away on business or off on holiday.

Stay cool, keep warm

New i30 is excellent when it comes to adjusting your interior environment to suit weather conditions. S, SE and SE Nav models benefit from air conditioning, with Premium models offering dual zone climate control. What’s more, Premium also offers a heated steering wheel and heated front seats.

Packed with clever technology, New i30 features a host of handy ways to help with every journey. For example, SE Nav and Premium models include an easy-to-use touch screen with satellite navigation. You can choose between three routes for your journey – shortest, fastest or most economical – while receiving alerts for traffic jams and roadworks, with the option to change your route if required.

On the road doesn’t mean out of touch with New i30. Every model features audio and phone controls on the steering wheel, plus Bluetooth® connectivity with voice recognition so you can make and take calls safely on the move. You can also stream music from a compatible smartphone, giving you access to all your favourite tracks hands-free.

Easy parking

Even the most experienced drivers have to deal with tricky parking spaces sometimes. SE, SE Nav and Premium models feature rear parking sensors to avoid any bumps or scrapes, while SE Nav and Premium also have a rear-view camera display within the touch screen, giving outstanding visibility when you’re reversing.

Stay in control

Maintaining a constant speed on the motorway can be repetitive. SE, SE Nav and Premium have the perfect solution. Switch on cruise control and you’ll travel at a pre-determined speed, leaving you to concentrate on the road ahead. Alternatively you can use the speed limiter function to cap your top speed, allowing you to accelerate and slow down without exceeding your chosen limit.


Experience i30

Athletic, responsive and agile, New i30 is the perfect family hatchback to get you and your passengers safely to your destination. It’s also a great car for business drivers, with low cost of ownership, low BIK and SMR costs. All this while delivering a relaxing and enjoyable drive.

S, SE and SE Nav offer an economical new 1.4 100PS petrol engine with manual transmission, or a lively 1.6 litre 120PS auto is available with SE and SE Nav. Premium models offer the 1.6 120PS petrol with a manual transmission. If you’re looking for something tailor-made for business use or longer distance driving, try the efficient 1.6 CRDi 110PS Blue Drive diesel, available on S, SE and SE Nav. Blue Drive models feature Intelligent Stop & Go which saves fuel by turning off the engine when the car is stationery, then switches it on again as soon as you press the clutch. Premium models offer more power with a 1.6 CRDi 136PS diesel engine, which along with the 110PS is available with manual or new 7-speed dual-clutch transmission (DCT).

Dual-clutch transmission

DCT works like two separate manual transmissions inside one casing, each being connected to the engine through its own clutch. Gear selection and the operation of the two clutches are precisely controlled, with odd numbered gears operated by one clutch and even numbered gears operated by the other. This design enables rapid gear changes as the next gear can be preselected in advance of the change. For example, when driving off in first gear, second gear is pre-selected. When the up-shift to second is required, this is achieved by quickly disengaging one clutch and engaging the other. The main advantages of DCT is a decrease in CO2 emissions, an increase in fuel efficiency, compared to traditional automatic transmissions, plus the speed of the gear change itself.

The right steer

Different journeys demand different driving styles. Flex Steer, standard on SE, SE Nav and Premium models, helps by providing a range of steering modes. Choose between Normal for day-to-day driving, Comfort to lighten the load during tricky manoeuvres and Sport for a crisp, rewarding drive on the open road.


Precious loads require the utmost care. That’s why New i30 comes with front, side and curtain airbags to protect you and your passengers if things take an unexpected turn. Premium models also include a driver’s knee airbag for added peace of mind.

You’ll be reassured to hear New i30 has been given the maximum 5* Euro NCAP score. This independent rating makes it one of the safest cars in its class. There are also ISOFIX anchor points in the outer rear seats, and the front passenger airbag can be deactivated if you want a rear-facing child seat next to the driver.

Driving is always full of surprises, so New i30 features Electronic Stability Programme and an Anti-Lock Braking System to give you plenty of control and reduce the risk of skidding. The Brake Assist System applies maximum braking when it senses a sudden stop, while Vehicle Stability Management helps keep you on a straight path when you brake or accelerate suddenly on mixed road surfaces.


Our dedication to quality underpins everything we do. We're confident enough to offer a five year unlimited mileage, fully transferable warranty, five years' roadside assistance and five years of annual vehicle healthchecks with every New i30.
