Geneva Motor Show 2015: Updated Hyundai i30 in showrooms from March

Published 03 March 2015

Hyundai has shown off the revised i30 at the Geneva Motor Show. It appears in showrooms later in March, priced from £15,195. The revised car gets minor styling tweaks, a new transmission option and improved economy, plus a new top-of-the-range Turbo model (pictured) with 186PS.

This high-performance version is powered by a 1.6-litre petrol engine which, as the name implies, is turbocharged. 0-62mph takes eight seconds and there are various Turbo-specific styling details and badges. It’s priced from £22,495 for the three door, while the five-door costs £22,995.

Another big change is the additition of a seven-speed dual clutch automatic in place of the old, traditional six-speed transmission. The new gearbox is offered with the 110PS and 136PS 1.6-litre CRDi diesel engines. It brings emissions down to as low as 109gkm.

The cleanest engine overall is the 1.6-litre CRDi diesel with Blue Drive, which emits 94g/km of CO2 and has official economy of 79.6mpg. Buyers can also get a 1.4-litre, 100PS petrol with official economy of 50.4mpg.

The entry-level model is now called S instead of Classic. It gets keyless entry, USB and AUX connectivity, Bluetooth and air con. SE trim adds alloy wheels, cruise control and parking sensors. SE Nav adds navigation and a reversing camera.

Premium models benefit from HID headlights, heated leather seats, heated steering wheel, dual-zone climate control and a smart key with engine start button.
