I30 plans to shake up its sector
HYUNDAI and Kia are sister companies in South Korea which manage to keep their brand identities apart.
Soon, Kia will have its new c’eed on sale but here is Hyundai’s lively take on the new platform with the latest i30. It looks different from the c’eed but shares a European construction base.
Prices for the i30 open at £14,495 for the 100 horse power 1.4 petrol engine in Classic trim.
New standard features include voice-activated Bluetooth, LED daytime running lights, multi-function steering wheel, electrically adjustable and heated door mirrors and one-touch indicators. Safety systems include vehicle stability management, emergency stop signal and hill-start assist.
The price shakes up the Focus/astra sector and includes a five-year warranty.
Blue Drive technologies come on all diesel 1.6 CRDI manual models as standard stop and go Technology. The 108.5 bhp version claims lowest CO2 emissions in its segment with 97g/km.
COMPETITOR: The Hyundai i30 will challenge the Focus/astra market.
