The Hyundai i30 hatchback has a new look for 2021. Both the interior and the car’s technology have changed to help the model stay fresh and remain competitive in the small hatchback market.
The Hyundai i30 now has a new base, and although it is slightly more expensive, it now has a fuller set of safety features. In addition, the $3000 additional cost makes for a standard package where before it was only available as a part of an $1800 added option package.
The model is an Active to an Elite version and an N Line and N Line Premium version with a sportier look. All versions are available in both manual and automatic transmissions.
In general, the price of the Hyundai i30 remains similar to prior models, except there is an approximate additional $3000 cost due to standard safety features now included in the standard car features. Prices will of course fluctuate depending on the country and city you are located.
The 2021 Hyundai i30 has a slim modern front with slash-like headlights and daytime running lights. On the other hand, the N line and Premium have sporty styles with a convenient slim style that allows the car to drive in most areas, even on the narrowest streets.
The high-end models have a high-tech infotainment system that sits next to the new digital instruments and interestingly designed dashboards.
