Hyundai i30 Facelift UK Pricing & Specs Revealed

The facelifted i30 was unveiled back in December, and we’ve been waiting to find out more about pricing and specs for the entire range, including the new and exciting i30 Turbo version.

If you’re on your way towards a Hyundai dealership, you should know that prices start from £15,195, which gets you the 1.4 liter 100 PS i30 S version (replacing the outgoing ‘Classic’ spec model), which still offers decent standard equipment such as keyless entry, USB & AUX connections, Bluetooth connectivity with steering wheel remote control, and air conditioning.

Moving up in the range, the SE version is available with features such as 16″ alloys, auto cruise control with speed limiter, drivers electric lumbar support, rear parking sensors, leather steering wheel and gear knob – with prices starting at £16,495.

Additionally, the SE Nav spec adds electric folding mirrors, sat-nav and rear view camera, while the top of the range i30 Premium spec (priced from £20,295) comes with 17″ alloys, automatic lights, leather effect seats, electric drivers seat, dual zone climate control, electronic parking brake, headlamp wash, heated front seats, heated steering wheel, HID headlamp with auto leveling and ALS, knee airbag, LED rear combination lights, rain sensor, rear air vents, smart key with engine start/stop button, supervision cluster and windscreen wiper de-icer.

Hyundai is also launching the dynamic i30 Turbo, featuring a 1.6 liter turbocharged engine good for 186 PS and a 0-60 time of 8 seconds. This model also gets 18″ alloys, Turbo sports bodykit, Turbo badge, perforated leather steering wheel with red stitching, sports suspension, sat-nav, sports seats and LED rear tail lights.

The i30 Turbo will be available only in 3-door and 5-door body styles, while the rest of the i30 range can also be configured as a 5-door Estate (Tourer).

Also new is the 7-speed dual clutch gearbox (7DCT) delivering greater fuel efficiency and better acceleration. This new transmission helps reduce the CO2 figure of the 1.6 liter CRDi Blue Drive from 145 g/km to 109 g/km, which is pretty impressive.

Hyundai’s European design team also redesigned the i30’s alloys and hexagonal front grille, and have added two new exterior colors: Polar White and Jet Black (exclusive to the i30 Turbo).

Now, since the i30 isn’t at all a bad looking hatchback, a Premium spec model should feel like very good choice for those willing to pay extra, as well as willing to dismiss rival offerings from the likes of VW, Ford, Opel/Vauxhall, Toyota, KIA, Honda, Mazda, Nissan, SEAT, Skoda, Peugeot, Renault and Citroen.

Yes, pretty much everybody has a horse in this race, and the C-segment is one of the most popular segments in Europe. The Hyundai i30 was only the 9th best selling car in its class in 2014, with only the Mazda3, Honda Civic and KIA cee’d registering worse sales numbers across the continent.

You can order your brand new facelifted Hyundai i30 in two days time (February 26), with deliveries taking place in March.
