The second generation of the Hyundai i30 is scheduled to enter the British market on March 12 with a starting price of £14,495. At this price you get the entry-level Classic version fitted with a 1.4-liter petrol unit offering 99 horsepower which comes together with a manual gearbox but also a more powerful 1.6-liter 118hp engine available with an automatic transmission.
On the other hand, the diesel range include a 1.4-liter CRDi with 89 horses but also a 1.6-liter CRDi available in two power versions ranging from 108 to 126 horsepower.
All the units can be ordered with a manual transmission while the first 1.6-liter CRDi unit can be hooked up to an automatic gearbox too.
We finished with the engine range therefore we can discuss about the four trim levels available. The Classic package includes LED daytime running lights, electrically adjustable door mirrors, multi-function steering wheel and Bluetooth connectivity.
Other features include Hill-start Assist and Vehicle Stability Management, but these are only few of the safety systems. If you opt for a better-equipped model such as the Active, Style or Style Nav you will get dual zone climate control, 15- or 16-inch alloy wheels, cruise control, automatic headlights and more.
