Hyundai Motor Co. unveiled today its new special edition of the i30 hatchback, for the South Korean local market. The new i30 “D-spec” comes with a new and powerful engine, the 2.0-liter GDi with a total output of 172 hp.

Currently in South Korea, the i30 is offered with a 1.6 GDi and 1.6 CRDi VGT diesel engine.

The new i30 comes equipped with 17-inch wheels and black interiors with gun-metal highlights. The price has been set at 19.95 million won ($19,100), up 1 million won from the 1.6-liter model, while a manual shift version will cost 18.35 million won.

Hyundai did not say when the D spec would be available overseas.
