New Hyundai i30 goes three-door for Paris

Hyundai released the first photos and details on the three-door version of the new i30 hatchback, a model slated for this year’s automotive event in Paris.

Power will be provided by the same engine range available for the five-door and tourer versions including the 1.4-liter and 1.6-liter units paired to six-speed manual or automatic transmissions.

Moreover, Hyundai says that the three-door i30 has been designed in Europe, for Europe. This means that its North American brother, the Elantra GT, won’t be the same with the European-spec Hyundai i30.

Compared to the five-door version, this model gets a revised roofline and bumper, new tailgate and a modified A-pillar.

A black mesh insert is also present to add some style while alloy wheels are standard too.

“The third member of the New Generation i30 family, the three-door joins the five-door hatchback and the Tourer to extend the broad appeal of Hyundai’s ‘made for Europe’ C-segment range to an even wider audience,” adds the car maker.
