Hyundai launches the new i30 in UK
|   Monday, July 09, 2012
Hyundai Motors has launched the much awaited i30 in the British market. The car is set to create benchmarks for the premium hatchback section of the market and is an upgrade to the i20.

The Hyundai i30 follows the fluidic sculpture designing philosophy of Hyundai and the exterior of the car is elegantly shaped and the intricate styling features are great to look at, as well as provide great aerodynamics to the car.

The new model has added creativity and versatility to Hyundai's lineup for the upcoming year and the impact it has created in the market has made its rivals take note of the car.
The i30 was first showcased at the Frankfurt International Car Show in late 2011 and it has been a huge hit since.

The i30 was initially produced in late 2010 in the American market and the car sold a record 250,000 cars since it launched. It is the successor to the Hyundai i20, the car with the highest sale numbers in the US.

The design of the car is inspired by nature, or so the makers claim. The fluidic sculpture design gives a 3D feel to the car and enhances the car's street presence. This design pattern was introduced in the Hyundai ix-onic concept, at the Geneva Motor Show in 2009 and Hyundai has been using this strategy to design cars ever since.

The Hyundai i30 is available in two petrol variants, the 1.6 L and the 1.8 L models. The smaller engine produces 95 KW and 157 NM of torque and the higher powered vehicle produces 110 KW and 178 NM of torque.
People have the option of choosing from the six speed manual or automatic gear boxes and a host of other luxury features. Both the models come in light aluminum body frame work and hence, this keeps the weight in check.

The interior of the i30 is very expensive and has an elegant feel to it. The quality of the materials used is top class and it gives you a general feel of the high standard coupes when you are inside the vehicle.

The car has been generously fitted with features like the innovative dual climate control, which allows both the driver as well as the passenger to adjust the climate according to his wishes. The TFT cluster also provides important running information about the car and the screen provides high definition pictures.

The i30 is the safest car to arrive this year and has already received a number of safety awards. The car has the iconic ABS, the anti lock braking system, vehicle stability management, electronic stability program, the brake assist technology, an emergency stop signal and emergency air bags for the front, rear, top and side safety.

The car is built on an ultra high tensile steel frame and the body shafts are made of aluminum. This helps the car maintain rigidity and helps the car lose some weight. This helps in the overall performance of the vehicle and the makes it safe to drive.
