Hyundai i30 Sportsvan Spotted (3)

When we saw the first spy shots we can’t believe that South Korean carmaker has that level of development in the next generation Hyundai i30. A few weeks ago I saw a few spy pictures of a mysterious hatchback from South Korea, and now, thanks to CarPIX, we come back with new pictures of the future i30, but this time near Hyundai’s European Technical Centre in Germany.

If you have a closer look to the new Hyundai i30 pictures, the car have the same fog lights/air intakes than the new Elantra. Also it shares more parts like the hexagonal front grille, exterior mirrors, than long hood that provides a wider and lower car.

The new i30 will uses the same design cues followed by the new Elantra, like with the new slim and sporty headlights, redesigned wheel arches, a refined design based on the Fluidic Sculpture philosophy.

Engine line-up could be formed by CRDi 1.6 diesel engines with the possibility of the in-house 7-speed automatic transmission and it also could be available with the new three-cylinder 1.0-liter 120 hp Kappa T-GDi engine. The Hyundai i30 will be one of the first models under the “N performance” brand.
