The Hyundai i30 2017 performs tests in the arctic circle
The new Hyundai i30 goes on with its round of tests of face-to-pitch-to-launch. This time we what we find in our section of photos spy doing tests of resistance to extreme temperatures.
To 30 degrees below zero
The compact Korean is once again being surrounded by snow, but this time is located in the arctic circle where the temperatures hover around the 30 degrees below zero. A challenge to their mechanical and other systems.
Our photographer tells us that the prototypes of Hyundai were accompanied by other vehicles from rival brands such as the current Volkswagen Golf and Ford Focus. Manufacturers want to know how to respond to vehicles from rival brands into these situations in order to try to match and even exceed these. It is known that the VW Golf is the compact benchmark in its segment, and the Focus is another big rival in this field.
The compact Korean supports -30 degrees
The i30 continues to be completely camouflaged, but under these thick clothes are hiding a design that adopts the new identifying features of the most existing models of the manufacturer. Headlights elongated, main grille hex Single Frame Audi and summarizing a design taken from the Hyundai Vision G Concept that we then saw integrated in the new Hyundai Elantra.
The compact Korean will benefit from a renewed range of diesel and petrol engines for greater efficiency, along with versions more performance as the Hyundai i30 Turbo or the N Series of higher sportsmanship. Forget about by the time of hybrid versions and electric since these technologies will be offered by the manufacturer in Hyundai IONIQ.
The new Hyundai i30 will go on sale next year but we will see it a little bit before, the end of 2016 or the beginning of 2017.
