Coherent and timeless design presence: New Cascading Grille at the front.
The New Generation Hyundai i30 evolves Hyundai’s design language with a timeless and sculptural design combining precise, tensed lines and refined rich surfaces. The combination of excellent functionality such as roominess, good visibility and comfort is complimented by a sensuous and confident expression of design. Hyundai Motor is introducing a new design element at the front: the Cascading Grille, which will become the new family identity for Hyundai models in the future.
The upright front of The New Generation Hyundai i30 is confident and expressive, celebrating the new Cascading Grille that is characterised by a downward tapering gesture inspired by the flow of molten steel. The grille features chrome-plated dots for a sophisticated appearance that enhance the satin chrome surrounding on the standard version. In combination with the front projector headlamps and the vertical LED daytime running lights with indicator function, The New Generation Hyundai i30 has a strong visual presence. To further enhance this, projector-type front fog lamps are integrated into the air curtains.
With its harmonious proportions, short front and rear overhangs, a long bonnet and a tapered roof silhouette, the car gets a sporty appearance and solid stance on the road. The New Generation Hyundai i30 features a sophisticated sleek character line that flows naturally from the headlamp along the almost horizontal belt line to connect with the LED rear lamps and further wraps around the rear for a timeless appearance. The black rear spoiler enhances aerodynamics and makes the New Generation Hyundai i30 look even more dynamic and compact. With a Coefficient of Drag of only 0.30, Aerodynamic performance is enhanced through several measures including an Active Air Flap behind the front grille and Air Curtains on each side of the front bumper to enhance airflow and reduce turbulences in the wheel housing.
Its muscular wide rear design with a sculpted and 3-dimensional appearance and the signature light graphic incorporating the high-positioned reflectors and fog lamps set the car apart on the road.

The new engine incorporates a high-pressure single-scroll turbocharger integrated
in the exhaust manifold to improve operational efficiency. The relocated and re-engineered turbo means throttle response time and low-end torque have improved. The new design injects fuel directly inside the cylinder, improving combustion rates for better power and fuel efficiency.
