The new generation of the Hyundai i30 3-door hatchback, which made its world premiere in September at the Paris Motor Show will go on sale in the United Kingdom on 24 January 2013 with prices starting from £13,995 OTR.
While keeping the same powertrain options and interior, the 3-door model features a more stylish body with a more sharply-raked roofline along with a host of other changes such as the reshaped front bumper.
UK buyers have a choice of four engines, including two petrols, a 1.4-liter delivering 98hp (100PS) and a 1.6-liter producing 118hp (120PS) and two 1.6-liter CRDi diesel units available with 108hp (110PS) or 126hp (128PS).
The entry-level Classic trim gets you with Bluetooth connectivity with voice recognition, steering wheel audio and phone controls, LED daytime running lights, body-coloured exterior door handles, USB and AUX connections and air conditioning.
If you move up to the mid-range Active trim, equipment features include 16-inch alloys, cruise control, rear parking sensors and a leather steering wheel and gearknob.
