Hyundai i30 1.5 T-GDI Hybrid is More Sophisticated and Confident

With a touchy idea, the Hyundai has the i30, which has an improved sharp N-Line display, updated. 

The most striking information is the optional full LED headlamps, which nicely frame the daytime running lights in a V shape. 

Together with the embedded radiator grille, the i30 looks more up-to-date and confident than in the past.

We are getting closer to the main launch of the Hyundai i30. Trials with pre-series copies reveal what needs to be used by Korean carmaker designs today. 

The development emphasizes the leading 1.5 T-GDI fuel engine available from September and is integrated with an electronic clutch. 

Besides, combined with a moderate 48 Volt hybrid system that also saves fuel costs.

Range Cruise Control is Available

Active lane assistant also allows automatic driving for a short time because the driver can take his hands off the steering wheel while innovations keep the car in its tracks. 

However, a soft beep will quickly sound, warning you to control the steering wheel. In the future, the self-driving function, combined with the cruise control range, does not need a driver even in traffic jams.

Likewise, the new feature of the i30 is an active blind-spot warning system that warns and intervenes in the event of unsafe lane changes. 

There is also a rear traffic warning that triggers the brakes if a dangerous collision occurs. The anti-collision system can even recognize pedestrians and cyclists in the future.

Finally, the eCall emergency situation call function is now offered for i30. However, this is not available for the lower levels, but only as part of the standard trend's primary instruments.

Integrated With the Smart Six-speed Transmission

The drive is paired with a new six-speed manual transmission known as iMT (Intelligent Manual Transmission), determined by a digitally managed clutch.

The result is the driver no longer works mechanically on the clutch by stepping on the pedal. But rather to trigger a signal that triggers engagement or electronic release. In practical terms, it seems that the clutch is timeless.

It only requires a bit of muscular strength and relieves the left leg's pressure during a long stop and go traffic. Likewise, the drive can be removed immediately while driving.

So it allows cruising in several driving scenarios, such as in a downhill area. Preferably, you can move along with the combustion engine turned off but at a slow pace.

100 km/ h in 8.4s

Two great months after the i30 market launch, a new 1.5 T-GDI leading engine must also be available. 

The new 1.5-liter four-cylinder gas engine has not been able to fully build 159 hp in pre-production cars. 

However, it does not represent production design in all respects. According to the datasheet, the handset must have a sprint time of 8.4 seconds and a top speed of 210 km / h.

Hyundai reports consumption is 5.4 liters according to the NEDC and 6.5 liters according to helpful WLTP measurements. 

The injectors are supported by a new 48-volt moderate hybrid system where the starter generator supports 16 HP when accelerating. 

Electricity makers get power from extra batteries that are fed with energy by recovery. Also, the e-engine controls the start function and the work of the fast-reacting start-stop system.

Hyundai i30 Price

More and more innovations can increase additional costs for vehicles. For a standard i30 with a 110 hp fuel engine and pure device, it has increased 1k to around 19k euros. 

Thanks to the reduction in taxes reduced to about 18,500 euros. This means that the i30 still keeps a specific Golf range where standard variations with entry-level fuel costs of 90 hp are around 1,400 euros more.

The difference in price for Golf also remains excellent when it comes to the i30 1.5 T-GDI in combination with the basic device-level pattern and can be obtained from around 25k euros. 

Golf with 150 PS 1.5 TSI starts with a price of approximately 27k euros.

Analog Instruments

Development is also evident in the interior, for example, an instrument cluster with an optional 7.0-inch display screen. Instead of the full display screen that applies to many carmakers, 

Hyundai relies on smaller screens, which are more flanked by analog display screens such as the lap counter and fuel gauge. 

For larger devices, the N Line trend is a digital cockpit in unification with a convenience plan, currently consisting of first Prime devices. 

The significant 10.25-inch touch screen in the center of the control panel, which also includes the latest interface for a flexible and sophisticated infotainment system, is even more remarkable. 

To date, the 8-inch touch screen on the i30 is the most crucial growth phase for the optional infotainment system, and this format is now available as a Trim variation for medium-sized equipment.
