The newly-developed Smartstream 1.6-litre four-cylinder diesel engine reduces CO2 emissions and improves fuel efficiency, and comes with three different power outputs: 96 PS (70kW) available with a 6-speed manual transmission (6MT), 116 PS (85kW) available with 6MT or the 7-speed dual clutch transmission (7DCT) , and 136 PS (100kW) with 6MT or 7DCT.
Along with the new Smartstream engine, the company equips the i30 five-door, i30 Wagon and i30 Fastback diesel variants with exhaust fluid after-treatment systems. The diesel exhaust fluid, a mix of urea and water, contributes to decreasing nitrogen oxide emissions. At the same time, all petrol engines of the i30 line-up have been equipped with a gasoline particulate filter.
Besides the technological update, Hyundai has refreshed the exterior design of its i30 five-door and Wagon with a new front bumper. The front of both cars now features the charismatic i30 Fastback bumper. Its sleek and elegant lines enhance the progressive and timeless look of the i30 five-door and Wagon, harmonising the design of the i30 range. Additionally, Hyundai has updated the exterior colour range of the i30 five-door and Wagon to include Stellar Blue and Olivine Grey.
Customers can now opt for the 8-inch Display Audio, which includes Android Auto and Apple Car Play for a seamless connection of passengers’ smartphones with the car. Users simply connect their phone to bring up the smartphone functions on the car’s 8-inch touchscreen. Drivers are able to control the system via voice control, the touchscreen or the buttons on the steering wheel to ensure minimal distraction during the ride.
