Hyundai Releases Rendering Of Second Generation i30

2012 Hyundai i30 rendering 1

Hyundai has released the first rendering of the next generation i30, revealing an exciting new look for the company’s bestselling C-segment hatchback.  It will be unveiled at the  Frankfurt motor show in September.

The all new i30 was designed and engineered at the Hyundai Motor Europe Technical Centre in Rüsselsheim, Germany and represents the next evolution of the unique form language, ‘fluidic sculpture’ –- the company’s distinctive design DNA.

The ‘fluidic sculpture’ ethos utilises flowing lines inspired by nature and modern architecture to give a constant three dimensional presence to Hyundai vehicles and was introduced as the Hyundai ix-onic concept at the 2009 Geneva Motor Show.   Since this debut, ‘fluidic sculpture’ has become the design language behind all new Hyundai models launched in Europe.

The next generation i30 is also recognisable thanks to Hyundai’s signature front face – the hexagonal shaped front grille.

Little more about the car has been released than that, but expect more on engines, emissions, fuel consumption, top speed and acceleration as we get to the show in September.
