2012 Hyundai i30 | new car review

Posted on Jul 4, 2012 by

In essence, the is the hatchback variant of the new Elantra. Only two variants of the are available in the UAE with two different engine options.

The 1.6-litre inline-4 engine produces a maximum of 122bhp and 152Nm of torque. The bigger 2-litre engine produces 145bhp and 186Nm of torque. Both these engines are paired with a 4-speed automatic. A six-speed automatic, similar to the one in the Tucson, would have been a better choice.

Standard features on both variants include power windows, front fog lamps, steering audio remote control and a roof rack. Both variants are offered with a single airbag with additional airbags not even being an option. ABS is also not a standard feature and doesn’t feature on the options list either.
