Hyundai reveals new i30

Hyundai pull the wraps of the next-generation Hyundai i30 family hatchback, set to make its world premier at the 2011 Frankfurt Motor Show.

Taking strong design cues from the current Hyundai i40, the new i30 hatchback promises a more premium feel along with higher refinement levels and LED daytime running lights.

The new model will feature on the Hyundai stand at the 2011 Frankfurt Motor Show, next week.

Designed and engineered at the Hyundai Motor Europe Technical Centre in Rüsselsheim, Germany, Hyundai hope the new-generation will build on the success of the original model which found 115,000 European buyers in 2010.

Production will take place at the company's high-tech manufacturing facility in the Czech Republic.

Cheif designer Thomas Bürkle commented, “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.

All new and current Hyundai's come with the brand's Five Year Triple Care warranty package, which helped the existing i30 to become the overall winner of the 2010 Driver Power survey.
