2019 Hyundai i30 Facelift Highlights – Video
Hyundai Motor has refined its i30 model range with the introduction of Euro 6d Temp compliant engines and a design update.
The powertrain update makes the Hyundai i30 five-door, i30 Wagon, i30 Fastback and i30 N compliant with the latest emission standards. The newly-developed Smartstream 1.6-litre four-cylinder diesel engine reduces CO2 emissions and improves fuel efficiency, and comes with three different power outputs: 96 PS (70kW) available with a 6-speed manual transmission (6MT) (Fuel consumption combined in NEDC conversion: 3.9 – 3.8l/100km; CO2 emissions combined in NEDC conversion: 104 – 99g/km), 116 PS (85kW) available with 6MT (Fuel consumption combined in NEDC conversion: 4.3 – 3.8l/100km; CO2 emissions combined in NEDC conversion: 112 – 99g/km) or the 7-speed dual clutch transmission (7DCT) (Fuel consumption combined in NEDC conversion: 4.1 – 4.0l/100km; CO2 emissions combined in NEDC conversion: 107 – 105g/km), and 136 PS (100kW) with 6MT (Fuel consumption combined in NEDC conversion: 4.4 – 4.1l/100km; CO2 emissions combined in NEDC conversion: 116 – 108g/km) or 7DCT (Fuel consumption combined in NEDC conversion: 4.3 – 4.1l/100km; CO2 emissions combined in NEDC conversion: 113 – 107/km).
Along with the new Smartstream engine, the company equips the i30 five-door, i30 Wagon and i30 Fastback diesel variants with exhaust fluid after-treatment systems. The diesel exhaust fluid, a mix of urea and water, contributes to decreasing nitrogen oxide emissions. At the same time, all petrol engines of the i30 line-up have been equipped with a gasoline particulate filter.
Besides the technological update, Hyundai has refreshed the exterior design of its i30 five-door and Wagon with a new front bumper. The front of both cars now features the charismatic i30 Fastback bumper. Its sleek and elegant lines enhance the progressive and timeless look of the i30 five-door and Wagon, harmonising the design of the i30 range. Additionally, Hyundai has updated the exterior colour range of the i30 five-door and Wagon to include Stellar Blue and Olivine Grey.
The i30 range is a stronghold for our success in Europe. To become the number one Asian car brand by 2021, we not only invest in cutting-edge technologies like with our Kona Electric or All-New NEXO, we also seek to constantly improve our best-selling models to meet our customer’s needs in terms of fuel efficiency and appealing design.

Hyundai’s i30 range consists of four different derivatives: the i30 five-door, the i30 Wagon, the i30 N and the i30 Fastback. Designed, developed and tested in Europe, the i30 range offers the latest SmartSense safety features, timeless design and efficient powertrains. Launched in 2017, the i30 five-door, i30 Wagon and i30 Fastback now receive their first product enhancement to become even more attractive to customers in terms of style and efficiency. Customers can also choose the Hyundai i30 five-door with the N Line trim. The i30 N Line, unveiled in summer 2018, is the first Hyundai model with the new trim, featuring exterior and interior design elements known from the i30 N, to enhance the visual appeal of i30. The mechanical set-up – including suspension, brakes and engine response – has also been tuned to add extra spice to the regular i30 five-door.
