Another new Paris Motor Show launch from Hyundai-Kia, this time the 3rd-generation Hyundai i30. Like the Kia Rio, the 2nd-generation i30 was only sold locally for a few months before Komoco pulled the plug and brought in the Accent instead, which I think is a pity. The interior looks particularly pleasing, taking cues from their Ioniq hybrid. Hope this gets brought in to compete with VW Golf and Opel's latest Astra.

It has similar looks as the Peugeot 308.

 

Interior looks very well laid-out, though the screen with the piano black bezels looks cheap.

Probably pricing wise not competitive enough, same as their accent.

Well if they import just the normal 1.6 L then don't need to bother to sell it already lar... it either has to be a turbo 1.4 or 1.6 L as the price for this car is at a premium...

If coming from Europe probably 1.4T as Europeans have practically abandoned naturally aspirated lumps

I do approve of bringing the i-series cars again though as they are truly engineered in a different way from the Americanized Sonata and the like to appeal to European tastes with GDi engines and the like. 

I feel the i40 sedan would have taken off if brought in as a consumer car instead of a taxi.

 

i30 has a 1.0T 120ps manual option, possible it may come here, but more likely they will offer us the 140ps 1.4T with DCT. I would suppose they could pitch the i30 as a 'premium option' over an Elantra, just as the i40 estate is supposed to be a premium option here

unfortunately the review (my fav is carwow) didnt think too highly of it; its decent its nice but just not as sporty a drive as we think it would be.

 

their pricing needs to compete with the astra 1.4T which is already hovering below $110K. that being said im looking out to see if they have less teething issues on the road. pardon me, im a sucker for warm hatches

 

now their elantra is about 90K ish (mid trim), only if i30 comes in around 105K or less then it may be a more compelling buy.

 

any info on reliability of their 7DCT?

So far not much problem for their dual clutch but some Carens drivers complain of the gearbox giving them a warning in a raffia jam like at the Causeway...

Unlikely the i30 will be below $110K... I'll be quite happy if it's $115K...

hope its as good as the europe trim....

 

but damn... 138bhp 242nm doing 8.9s on 7DCT at 18.5km/L

Carwow reviewing which one? i30?

 

Well, they do usually acknowledge that the hyundais although very sedate drive and not fun to drive they are supremely comfortable and refined for their price which is what may be more important to mass-market.

Not likely to be full European trim... Likely we'll get one trim above the base level trim... the engine is very costly... so the OMV will be high... plus it's made in Europe... so everything is expensive there...

That's what I like about my Sonata... it's super refined as a cruiser... pushing it requires sports mode... still not too bad... just that you have to keep the revs sky high...

Yup i30

Yes think the carwow guy prefers a more engaging drive and he biased when it's not sporty. So maybe if he doesn't curse at the car and just gives a bored face it should be perfect for our comfort

Haha, Matt Watson, right? Love his videos.

Well, he's from the UK, and they're more into engaging drives than the rest of the world. Part of the reason for the old Mondeos' incredible success at the time. But he does also talk about the comfort of the car and he has high praise for the i40 estate in regards to how it soaks up bumps. I recall whenever I ride in an i40 taxi they're just so comfy and the Hyundais also often have great space.

 

I expect the same of the i30... though I doubt a Hyundai hatch will move a lot of units here, the Accent hatch wasn't really a volume product here, though the i30 would be more like an Elantra hatch (compact) than the supermini class that the Accent occupies.


That's what I like about my Sonata... it's super refined as a cruiser... pushing it requires sports mode... still not too bad... just that you have to keep the revs sky high...

 

Perhaps I will have to hire you as a not-PHV for a day for a relaxation trip!  :XD:
