South Korean automaker Hyundai will debut a three-door version of its i30 offering at the Paris Motor Show later this month.
The vehicle joins the five-door variant and the station wagon already on offer.
The new model gets a sportier makeover with a sharply-raked beltline, more angular glasshouse silhouette and longer front doors that provide it with a more dynamic profile.
A new, black-finished mesh insert and central bar accentuate Hyundai’s hexagonal grille, which is flanked by new, sportier fog lamp clusters consisting of round spots connected to LED daytime running light strips.
The i30 will be offered with a choice of four engines and five power outputs, together with six-speed manual and automatic transmissions. The highlight of the powertrain range is the ‘U-II’ 1.6-litre diesel engine, generating 94kW yet emitting only 97g/km of CO2.
