Hyundai i30 facelift (2024): Everything you need to know

Hyundai i30 facelift (2024): Everything you need to know

The Hyundai i30 N is dead, long live the i30 N-Line! This will be roughly thought at Hyundai. The sporty i20 and i30 (which were no longer available in CO2-conscious Holland…) must make room for the ‘affordable sporty EV’. For Hyundai drivers who would like to continue driving on petrol for a while, Hyundai is today launching the second facelift of the i30 and i30 Wagon, which debuted in 2016.

Mechanically, nothing changes in the Hyundai i30. So you can still only choose the mild hybrid 1.0-liter three-cylinder with 120 hp or 1.5-liter four-cylinder that produces 159 hp. The 48 volt micro-hybrid system is not there for extra energy, but mainly to reduce consumption and CO2 emissions.

Minor changes to the i30

On the outside, Hyundai changes the grille, the bumper puts under the license plate and the fog lamp housing. Additionally, the optional LED headlights are now standard and the 16-inch rims have a new design. Customers who have the extra cash to pay for the N-Line will receive a different grille design. Other parts in black, metallic color also end up on the Hyundai on the left and right. In addition, there are new side skirts in the same shade and (optional) 18-inch rims from the N-Line division. Inside you will find three horizontal red lines on the upholstery.

Speaking of the interior: the driver is now treated to an (optional) 10.25-inch touchscreen, three USB-C ports at the front and back and LED lights in the interior and luggage compartment. And of course the i30 is loaded with (driving) assistants. You now also get ROA, Rear Occupant Alert, which ‘prevents people in the back seat – such as children – being forgotten when exiting and locking the car’.

Production will start soon

Prices for the facelifted Hyundai i30 are yet to be announced. The versions that you can order now cost at least 29,295 euros for the hatchback (23,249 euros in Belgium) and 32,995 euros for the Wagon (24,099 euros in Belgium). The face lift will be slightly higher. Production of the updated i30 will begin next month and will still take place in the Czech Republic.
