The 2018 powertrain update makes the Hyundai i30 five-door hatchback, i30 Wagon, i30 Fastback and i30 N hot hatch compliant with the latest emission standards. The newly developed Smartstream 1.6-litre 4-cylinder diesel engine reduces CO2 emissions and improves fuel efficiency, and comes with a choice of three different power outputs – 96hp, 116hp and 136hp.
Along with the new Smartstream engine, the company has equipped the i30 five-door, i30 Wagon and i30 Fastback diesel variants with exhaust fluid after-treatment systems. The diesel exhaust fluid, a mix of urea and water, contributes to decreasing nitrogen oxide emissions. At the same time, all petrol engines of the updated i30 lineup have been equipped with a gasoline particulate filter.
Besides the technological update, Hyundai has refreshed the exterior design of its i30 five-door and Wagon with a new front bumper. The front of both cars now features the charismatic i30 Fastback bumper. Its sleek and elegant lines enhance the progressive and timeless look of the i30 five-door and Wagon, harmonising the design of the i30 range. Additionally, Hyundai has updated the exterior colour range of the i30 five-door and Wagon to include Stellar Blue and Olivine Grey.
Customers can now opt for the 8-inch Display Audio, which includes Android Auto and Apple Car Play for a seamless connection of passengers’ smartphones with the car. Users simply connect their phone to bring up the smartphone functions on the car’s 8-inch touchscreen. Drivers are able to control the system via voice control, the touchscreen or the buttons on the steering wheel to ensure minimal distraction during the ride.
Hyundai’s i30 range consists of four different derivatives – the i30 five-door, the i30 Wagon, the i30 N and the i30 Fastback. Designed, developed and tested in Europe, the i30 range offers the latest SmartSense safety features, timeless design and efficient powertrains.
