Hyundai has confirmed prices and specification for the New Generation i30 three-door due to go on sale on 24 January 2013.
From launch the i30 three-door features four trim levels with prices starting at £13,995 OTR for the entry-level Classic.
The New Generation i30 three-door brings its own individual style, which sets it apart from the rest of the range. New design touches include a prominent front spoiler and reshaped front bumper while a revised lower section at the rear contributes to the stand-out changes. Furthermore, new front and rear fog lamps, a new-look mesh grille, a sharply-raked beltline and a sportier rear incorporating LED taillights complete the design changes.
The i30 three-door has an identical luggage capacity to that of the i30 Hatchback with 378-litre boot space (1,316 litres with the seats down).
The entry-level Classic trim comes 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 as standard.
Moving up to the mid-range Active trim, customers benefit from enhanced comfort and convenience features including 16-inch alloys, cruise control, rear parking sensors and a leather steering wheel and gearknob. Prices for this mid-range trim level start at £15,195 OTR for the 100PS 1.4-litre petrol variant with the efficient Active 1.6 CRDi 110PS Blue Drive costing £17,490 OTR. The Blue Drive model emits 100g/km of CO2 and is capable of returning 74.3mpg on the combined cycle.
Tony Whitehorn, president and ceo, Hyundai Motor UK, said: “A key consideration for buyers in this segment of the market is styling and design and the exterior enhancements on New Generation i30 three-door add a distinctive, emotional and sporty element to the range. However, the three-door retains the same high levels of quality and equipment, coupled with the clean and efficient powertrains found in the rest of the New Generation i30 family.”
