By autoX Editorial | on February 27, 2020

Hyundai's swanky supermini becomes sharper and more stylish in its new avatar. The 2020 i30 will go on sale in European markets in three body styles hatchback, fastback, and wagon. 

Hyundai’s i30 hatchback has received a mid-life makeover, and it looks very good. The new i30 will make its global debut at the 2020 Geneva Auto Show in a week’s time.

The 2020 i30 has been revealed for the European market as of now. It will be offered in three body styles – hatchback, fastback, and wagon. A go-faster and more hardcore i30 N Performance version is also expected in the coming months.

Speaking of the updates, the refreshed version features a more aggressive grille and sleeker LED headlamps, while the N-Line versions – not to be confused with the N Performance – get a wider and sportier front bumper. You can spec the car with either 16- or 18-inch alloy wheels. At the back, the LED lamps are re-profiled and the bumper has been redesigned slightly.

Inside, in typical Hyundai-style, the cabin looks very premium and stylish. The feature list includes a 7.0-inch digital instrument cluster and a 10.25-inch infotainment system, which comes with wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

On the mechanical front, the new model comes with a 108bhp 1.5-litre petrol, which is mated to a six-speed manual gearbox. The higher versions come with a 1.0-litre turbo petrol engine that delivers 118bhp and gets a 48V mild-hybrid system as an option. At the top of the petrol, range is a 1.5-litre turbo engine, which develops 158bhp and gets the mild-hybrid system as standard. All the turbo engines are offered with either a six-speed manual or a seven-speed dual-clutch (DCT) automatic. The diesel version comes powered by a 1.6-litre unit, which is rated at 113bhp. It’s also offered with a six-speed manual or a seven-speed DCT.

While the new i30 is not likely to come to India, the N Performance derivative is expected to begin Hyundai’s high-performance arm in India in the coming time. Hyundai has already hinted at the same, and at the recently concluded Delhi Auto Expo, the company also showcased the outgoing i30 N Fastback to assess the interest of the Indian audience.
