Hyundai i30 Hatchback Premium for UK market

The Hyundai i30 hatch and Tourer models are now available with a new range topping Premium trim grade and three new exterior colors for the British customers. To be more precise, the Premium trim incorporates all the equipment contained within the optional Convenience and Individual packages as standard, but also other elements which actually increase the final price.

The carmaker offers both the i30 hatchback and Tourer Premium models with 17-inch alloy wheels to send the power to the road, with chrome door handles with illumination and automatically folding door mirrors which contain the puddle lamps. In terms of interior, the new trim level builds on the Style Nav trim adding features like automatically dimming rear view mirror, heated front seats, and keyless entry with engine start / stop button. The list of the elements continues with electric seat with lumbar support, leather upholstery supervision cluster with LCD color display. The passenger seat can be adjusted so that everyone feels comfortable inside during the ride.

The new Hyundai i30 Hatchback Premium is offered with two engine choices. The first one includes a 1.6-liter petrol unit capable of generating 118 BHP. This output is then being transferred to the wheels through a manual transmission. The second option is a 1.6-liter CRDi diesel capable of developing 126 BHP which actually available both for the Hatchback and the Tourer. To transfer the output to the wheels, the engineers have offered a manual or an automatic gearbox. The carmaker established a starting price of GBP19.995 OTR for the 5-door variant of the Hyundai i30 Premium. The model is now available with three new shades called Ice Blue, Cold Red and Blueberry Blue. If we managed to make you curious, take a quick look at the photo gallery below.
