    Shortly before its public debut at the 2012 Paris Motor Show, Hyundai took the wraps off the three-door version of its i30 hatchback that is going to join the five-door and wagon modifications.

    The new car will be fitted with the same powertrains and transmissions as cars from its family have. Hyundai markets it as an emotional hatchback developed “in Europe for Europe”. Besides, the three-door version resembles other cars from the family but having a more dynamic exterior. It was achieved due to a flowing roof line, elongated triangle-shaped rear side windows and more muscular shape of the body and rear wings. Besides, three-door Hyundai i30 differs with a new radiator grill, more aggressive bumper and new 16-inch wheel disks.

    It is known that in Europe three-door i30 will get five powertrains versions including 1.4L and 1.6L from 90 to 128 hp diesel and gasoline engines. They are supposed to be aggregated with six-speed automatic and manual transmissions.

    Hyundai expects that upcoming i30 will raise Hyundai awareness in the most popular market segment in Europe. The new car is developed by Hyundai development center in Germany and will be produced at its plant in Czech Republic. The car is expected to be first introduced at the 2012 Paris Motor Show but it is not known when it will hit the market yet.
