Hyundai i30

Thursday, March 10, 2011

The Hyundai i30 is a car that is set to change the face of Hyundai in Europe.  It is not only the most important car Hyundai has ever launched in the UK, it heralds a dramatic shift in image and attitude that will drive change in people’s perception of the whole Hyundai brand.

The i30 is the first Hyundai to carry the ‘i’ in its name. The number 30 is the numerical equivalent of the letter assigned to the i30’s segment, the European C segment.
Specifically designed and developed for Europe, with the i30 Korea’s leading car maker has produced a stylish model that will blend seamlessly into the UK’s C segment and a car that is capable of competing with the very best in its class.
Thanks to exacting engineering standards and superb build quality, matched with a well thought out Euro-specific design and exceptional levels of equipment and finish, i30 is all set to take the fight to the fully established European marques, like Ford’s Focus, Renault’s Mégane, Citroën’s C4, Mazda’s 3 and Peugeot’s 307.
As a continuing demonstration of its faith in the durability and build quality of its products, the i30, like every new Hyundai sold in the UK, comes with a five-year unlimited mileage warranty.
As well as being the model to introduce a whole new way of naming Hyundai models, i30 introduces a new, cleaner look where badging is concerned.  Trim levels, of which there will be three in the UK, will not be depicted anywhere on the car, while diesel models will be identifiable only by a ‘CRDi’ (the name of Hyundai diesel engines) badge on the sides beneath the indicator repeater lights.
