AN­OTHER ma­jor car­maker has the Volk­swa­gen Golf in its sights. This time it is Hyundai, which has the World Car of the Year win­ner as the bench­mark for its com­ing re­place­ment for the com­pact i30.

The i30 is ex­pected to be run out at a mo­tor show late this year ahead of sales in 2012, based on an in­ten­sive Euro­pean test pro­gram that has at­tracted the lenses of carparazzi snap­pers.

They have caught the new i30 in north­ern Scan­di­navia and, de­spite heavy cam­ou­flage, ev­ery­thing points to a much more re­fined ver­sion of the cur­rent car.

The sec­ond-gen­er­a­tion i30 is likely to be slightly big­ger over­all, with more space in­side, and with a body shape that is far more youth­ful than the cur­rent car.

The test car shows sleeker lines that will move it com­fort­ably along­side the i45, with low-pro­file lights — in­clud­ing LED day­time run­ning lamps — and LED tail lamps moved to a new lo­ca­tion.

Me­chan­i­cally, the car will get tweaked ver­sions of Hyundai’s lat­est Gamma mo­tors, as well as an im­proved diesel.

There is also po­ten­tial for the di­rect-in­jec­tion petrol mo­tor that has been pre­viewed re­cently in the Veloster coupe.
