At the end of the summer, during the month of September, Hyundai took advantage of the ever-important appointment of the Paris motor show to reveal all the details of their renewed compact, the Hyundai i30. This model will reach dealers early next year, during the month of January, that is to say, in just a few weeks. And again will surprise us with a jump in terms of quality and technology, positioning itself as a great alternative in segment C of the brands generalists.
As you already know, Hyundai is an asian brand, South Korea. However, the new Hyundai i30 has virtually no trace of the old economic models that came from the asian market. This product has been designed and developed in Europe, in the “Old Continent”, where it also occurs. In this way, we could say that it is almost as european as the very Volkswagen Golf, the king of its segment.
The Hyundai brand has just announced that its Hyundai i30 has already started its production, which is carried out in the plant in Nosovice, in the Czech Republic. It is not the first i30 which this factory produces, since it was inaugurated in 2008 with the manufacture of this same model. Today, in Nošovice are made to the Hyundai ix20 and Tucson. This plant has the capacity to produce 350,000 units per year, with 3,300 employees and 500 robots.
The new Hyundai i30 will come with three engines of gasoline with 100, 120 and 140 HP, the two most powerful variants supercharged by turbo; but is also expected a sports version should appear several months later. In diesel there will be three other options, with 95, 110 and 136 HP. On the other hand, the compact Hyundai offers a boot capacity of 395 litres, expandable to 1.301 liters by folding the second row of seats.
