March 25, 2024

Hyundai i30 for 2024

The Hyundai i30 appeared on the market back in 2007. The current model is the third generation. What exactly has been adjusted for the 2024 model? Explain! Up front, the radiator grille, bumper insert under the license plate and fog lamp housings have been redesigned. At the rear of the hatchback and station wagon, the chrome insert of the rear bumper was given a more angular appearance. LED headlights and taillights, previously optional, are now standard. The car also received a set of fresh 16-inch alloy wheels.


The updated Hyundai i30 becomes available with a choice of 12 body colors. Seven of them are new: Abyss Black Pearl, Ecotronic Grey Pearl, Ultimate Red Metallic, Jupiter Orange Metallic, Meta Blue Pearl, Cypress Green Pearl and Sailing Blue Pearl. Colors returning are: Atlas White, Serenity White Pearl, Shimmering Silver Metallic, Shadow Grey and Engine Red.

The interior of the Hyundai i30

For the interior, Hyundai provides full cloth, full leather, suede and leather. There are also three new patterns for the chairs. If the customer chooses full fabric, the backrest features a pattern consisting of horizontal lines. There is more, including a standard 4.2-inch digital instrument panel, three front and rear USB-C ports, Over-The-Air (OTA) map updates and an optional 10.25-inch all-digital instrument panel. LED lighting has been added in the interior and luggage compartment for better illumination.

Hyundai i30 N Line

The Hyundai i30 N Line is also undergoing some updates. The mesh of the grille has been modified. In the interior, three red horizontal lines adorn the leather and suede upholstery. A dark metallic accent has been added to the inserts of the front bumper side vents of the i30 N Line. The newly designed side skirts also feature a dark metal-colored insert. In addition, customers can choose special 18-inch N Line alloy rims. The Hyundai i30 N is a thing of the past, as are the KONA N and i20 N.


The updated Hyundai i30 is equipped with the latest version of Hyundai Smart Sense that bundles several active safety and driving assistance systems. Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist (FCA) helps detect and avoid a potential collision with obstacles on the road. Autonomous Lane Assist Lane Following Assist (LFA) helps the driver stay in the center of the lane with subtle steering corrections. Intelligent Speed Limit Assist (ISLA) adjusts the driving speed to the applicable speed limit, and Rear Occupant Alert (ROA) prevents persons in the rear seat – such as children – from being forgotten when leaving and locking the car.

Junction Turning function

FCA can be optionally supplemented with a Junction Turning function that allows the system to operate at intersections. This feature detects oncoming cars from the other side when the driver turns left at an intersection. If a collision is likely, the system automatically activates the brakes. Highway Driving Assist (HDA) 1.5, when driving on the highway, ensures that the driving speed and distance to the car in front remains constant while keeping the Hyundai i30 in the middle of the lane – even when cornering.

Parking Distance Warning

Thanks to standard front and rear parking sensors – Parking Distance Warning (PDW) – the driver is alerted if an obstacle is detected when the Hyundai i30 is moving forward or backward at low speed. For lower fuel consumption, the powertrain can be combined with 48-volt Mild-Hybrid technology that ensures lower gasoline consumption and low CO2 emissions.
