New Generation i30 gets the premium touch

Hyundai has added a new range-topping Premium trim to the existing New Generation i30 line-up. Available on both the Hatchback and Tourer models, the Premium trim boasts a number of new standard features offering customers the complete package while still representing excellent value for money.
Premium trim now includes all the equipment contained previously within the Convenience and Individual packs as standard along with several additional features.
Starting on the outside, the Premium models will benefit from a new 17-inch alloy wheel design, chrome door handles with illumination and automatically folding door mirrors, which also incorporate puddle lamps.
Moving inside, the Premium features a number of additional standard features over Style Nav such as leather upholstery, automatically dimming rear view mirror, electric driver’s seat with lumbar support, heated front seats, keyless entry with engine start/stop  button plus supervision cluster with LCD colour display. A height adjustable passenger seat is also now available.
Tony Whitehorn, Hyundai Motor UK President and CEO, said: “The New Generation i30 has proven to be extremely popular with both fleet and retail customers since its launch in March this year. We have seen many customers choosing higher specification models and adding optional extras on top of that for additional comfort and convenience.
“The new Premium trim offers exceptional value for money as customers get all the benefits of the option packs, and more, as standard equipment for a relatively nominal increase in overall price.”
The Premium will be available with two engine options including a 120PS 1.6-litre petrol with manual transmission on the hatchback and a 1.6-litre CRDi 128PS diesel on both Hatchback and Tourer with a choice of either a manual or automatic gearbox.
The Convenience and Individual packs, costing £750 and £1,000 respectively on Style and Style Nav models, will no longer be available. A tilt and slide Panoramic sunroof is available as an optional extra for £950 on Premium models only.
Further changes to the range include the addition of the 1.6-litre CRDi 128PS diesel in conjunction with automatic transmission on Style and Style Nav models for Hatchback and Tourer, replacing the existing 110PS automatic. The 1.6 CRDi 110PS Blue Drive models will now only be available on Classic and Active trim with the higher-powered 1.6 CRDi 128PS variant reserved as the sole diesel option on the top three trims only.
Across the i30 range, Hyundai has extended the colour palette to include three new eye-catching colours namely: Cool Red (solid), Ice Blue (metallic) and Blueberry Blue (metallic). These colours complement the existing six-colour palette, which is Creamy White (solid) plus metallic finishes including, Aqua Blue, Sleek Silver and Steel Grey and pearl finishes including Cashmere and Phantom Black. Metallic and pearl finishes cost £445.
