Euro-styling. Game changing. Trail blazing. What’s not to love?
When i30 burst onto the scene in 2007, it was an instant hit. Combining European styling with locally-tuned performance, it’s no surprise the i30 range – the versatile hatch, spacious wagon or power-packed SR – has become such an Aussie favourite.
Designed at the Hyundai Motor Europe Technical Centre in Germany, the sporty and dynamic i30 styling is characterised by fluid lines that create a sense of constant movement. Throughout, high-quality touches add extra finesse and underscore the concept of a luxury small car.
The Sky’s The Limit
The twin-panel, panorama glass roof brings all the joys of open air driving – without the need for hats and scarves. At the touch of a button, the front panel opens – and activates a wind deflector that does just that. Only available on: Premium & SR Premium variants
Sharper, Smarter Headlamps
The HID Xenon headlamps offer significantly brighter lighting compared to conventional halogens, while automatic levelling reduces glare to on-coming drivers – and headlamp washers even clean the lens to ensure optimal illumination at all times. Only available on: Premium & SR Premium variants
High Intensity Discharge (hid) Xenon Headlamps
The i30 series 2 SR comes with High Intensity Discharge (HID) Xenon headlamps that cast a significantly brighter beam and their headlight-levelling capacity is also considerate of on-coming traffic.
Safer Rear Lighting
Large, wraparound LED rear combination lamps are sculpted and use an LED array for maximum brightness, saving energy and enhancing safety. By lighting up a split second faster than conventional lamps, they alert the following driver sooner. Only available on: SR, Premium, & SR Premium variants
Now That’s Sporty
Nothing says ‘sporty’ quite like a rear spoiler. Not only does it enhance style and aerodynamics, the i30 is integrated with an LED high-mount brake lamp, for the benefit of drivers trailing in your wake.
A Warm Welcome
Premium touches, like the puddle lamps that automatically activate when the driver approaches, add an extra layer of quality and style to the whole All-New i30 experience. Only available on: SR, SR Premium, Premium, Tourer Elite variants
Brighter By Design
Headlamps turn on automatically at dusk or when encountering low light levels. Only available on: SR, SR Premium, Premium, Tourer Elite variants

Stay Focused In The Rain.
A sudden downpour can trip your concentration – so when moisture is detected on the windscreen, sensors activate the wipers, providing hands-free ease and safer driving in rainy weather. Only available on: SR, SR Premium, Premium, Tourer Elite variants.
*Overseas model shown
The multi-spoke alloy wheels of the i30 maximise style. See specification page to determine which alloy wheel coordinates with each variant.
Offering an exceptional amount of space for a vehicle in its class, it’s hard to believe that the i30 is classified as a small car. There’s plenty of head, leg and shoulder room, plus a generous, smartly designed cargo area. The rear seat split 60:40.
Luxuriate In Premium Leather
Quality emanates from the leather appointed interior soft touch surfaces, such as the beautifully detailed seats. Only available on: Active X, Premium and SR Premium variants. *Finishes specified as leather may contain elements of genuine leather, polyurethane leather (leather substitute) or man-made materials, or a combination thereof.
Heated And Ventilated Front Seats
In cold weather, the front seats are heated by high-speed Warming Elements, while on hot days, a ventilation system blows a gentle stream of cool air through the perforations in each front seat, to maximise driving comfort. Only available: on Premium and SR Premium.
Electro-chromatic Rear View Mirror
The electro-chromatic interior mirror automatically dims when it senses headlight glare from following vehicles. Only available on: Premium and SR Premium variants
Some Like It Hot
Another cool feature of the i30 is the fully automatic, dual-zone climate control that allows both the driver and the front passenger to choose different temperature settings – keeping everybody happy. Only available on: SR, SR Premium, Premium and Tourer Elite variants
Glove Box Cooler
The glove box cooler offers an ideal place to store drinks and snacks, while keeping them cool and fresh.
Stay cool, calm and connected wherever you’re going. Everything’s within easy reach or controllable from your steering wheel – air-con, Sat/Nav, tunes, hands-free calls and more – and you can see it all on the 7” LCD multi-media touchscreen. Only available on: Premium variant
Google Now Voice Activation & Apple Caplay
An upgraded 6 speakers audio system also offers CarPLay and Google Now capabilties allowing you to interact with your smartphone via the in-dash 7” multimedia display to provide you and your passengers with the music you love anytime and anywhere. Only available on: Active, ActiveX and SR variants
As If By Magic!
When the smart key is within range, your i30 recognises it and the puddle lamp turns on and wing mirrors fold out. And, then, when you’re ready to go, press the Push-Button to start your engine. Key still in pocket! Only available in: Premium, SR, SR Premium and Tourer Elite variants
Keep Your Hands On The Wheel
All the most used controls including cruise control are ergonomically positioned as steering wheel-mounted switches, located near the thumb area.
Everything’s within easy reach or controllable from your steering wheel – air-con, Sat/Nav, tunes, hands-free calls and more – and you can see it all on the 7” LCD multi-media touchscreen.
The i30 isn’t just a looker; under the hood, it’s a top-notch performer. Combining athletic power and handling, and an impressive range of cutting-edge driving technologies, it delivers maximum safety, convenience and comfort – all with a liberal sprinkling of style
Engineered To Perform
i30 series II comes equipped with Hyundai’s 1.8 litre ‘Nu’ powerplant, which features Dual Continuously Variable Valve Timing (Dual CVVT) that provides up to 107 kW of power. i30 series II SR has an exclusive 2.0 GDI petrol engine from Hyundai's Nu engine family with 20% more power and 19% more torque than the i30’s 1.8 MPI engine.
Great Power, Great Efficiency
The 1.6 litre Diesel engine from Hyundais’s ‘U2’ series provides an impressive 260Nm (manual) or 300Nm (DCT) of maximum torque and 100 kW power output, which is matched by remarkable fuel efficiency and low emissions.
The i30 combines its powerful engines with the most modern advances in manual, automatic and dual clutch transmissions for the most fuel-efficient shift and a new level of driving comfort.
More Power To Your Steering
Flex Steer™ lets you select between three steering calibrations. Comfort is ideal for slow-moving city traffic and Sport is great on the open road. All of which are optimised for Aussie conditions.
Locally Tuned, Locally Tested
Performing beautifully on a racetrack in Germany doesn’t mean a car will cut it over here. So we put the i30 through a gruelling set of uniquely Australian road tests – and tweaked it accordingly. Now it drives like a local.
Good looks and world-class performance mean very little if they put people at risk. Your safety is our number one priority, which is why every car in the i30 range has achieved the maximum 5-Star ANCAP safety rating.
All Round Protection
As well as all the other built-in safety features in the i30, in a crash, a comprehensive system of seven airbags – including driver and front passenger (front and side), nearside and offside curtain and driver’s knee airbags – is activated. Look beyond outer beauty of the i30 and you’ll find a heart of steel. High-tensile Australian steel. Smashed and battered in thousands of tests to ensure you and your passengers will be protected in the event of a real crash.
Look Forward To Reversing
The cleverly-hidden rear-view camera activates when reverse is selected, so you can see where you’re going on the LCD multimedia screen. And four rear-mounted sensors help to keep you on track, resulting in perfect parking every time by providing an audible alert when detecting obstacles behind your car.
Stable And Smooth
Electronic Stability Control activates brakes on individual wheels to help correct skidding if you lose steering control. And Traction Control System helps to reduce wheel spin on slippery or uneven surfaces, for a safer and smoother drive.
Sometimes you need a little help braking. ABS with EBD helps stop the brakes from locking up and optimises braking pressure between front and rear wheels. In emergencies, BAS applies maximum force to help you brake more efficiently.
Vehicle Stability Management System (vsm)
You could be driving along happily, when, all of a sudden, the vehicle starts to skid away from your intended direction. VSM is designed to detect this and apply corrective steering pressure to help you regain control.
"South Korean small car makes a convincing argument against European counterparts.For me, it is the convenience that this car delivers that would tip me over the edge. Everything was just so easy with this car, and I think that would be the real selling point for people in the market for a car like the i30."
