President of Hyundai, Peter Schreyer, says, “the new-generation i30 is a car for everybody. From a design perspective, we haven’t just considered one customer; we have focused on a wide range of different people. This model showcases an evolution of Hyundai Motor’s design language with natural flowing lines, refined surfaces and a sculpted body to create a timeless appearance. We are also introducing our further developed grille: the Cascading grille.”
Hyundai will also reveal the i30’s improved safety features when the car is officially unveiled on 7th September 2016. Once it's launched, we should get some more insight into the engine details as well.
