All new Hyundai i 30 Launched in Frankfurt auto show 2011 with new looks and nice features.
Designed and engineered at the Hyundai Motor Europe Technical Centre in Rüsselsheim, Germany, the new-generation i30 will be making its world debut at this year’s prestigious Frankfurt Motor Show. The original model, which was launched back in July 2007 went on to increase sales in Europe year after year, achieving total sales of more than 350,000 units up to mid-2011.
Just like its passing namesake, the new i30 will target young and progressive buyers, who expect more than just good looks from their family hatches. The successful implementation of Hyundai’s new ‘fluidic sculpture’ design DNA, the new i30 will once again dinstinguish itself with looks and lines that deserve a second look many times over.
Giving further insights into the design DNA of this magnificent looking modern-day iteration of the ‘i30’ hatch, Thomas Bürkle, Chief Designer at Hyundai Motor Europe Technical Centre, said “The new-generation i30 is recognisable thanks to the Hyundai family face with its signature hexagonal-shaped front grille and the jewel-like design of the headlamps, together with distinctive daytime running lights. These lights present an angular shape within a more softly-edged recess, adding a strong personality to the vehicle, as well as a sense of refinement and luxury.”
Being the first Hyundai car to receive five stars from Euro NCAP, the car maker obviously expects the new-generation i30 carry forward the same success that the original model enjoyed, and the inclusion of its award-winning Five Year Triple Care package for European customers, will be a valuable point of differentiation for the new-generation i30.
