Sleeker, safer and more efficient. The all-new 2020 i30 does not disappoint.

Undergoing a whole host of enhancements for the 2020 upgraded model; as technology has evolved through the body of the vehicle so has its safety features.

“The front is characterised by a wider-looking, more modern stance. The wider grille features an accentuated 3D pattern that emphasises the agile look of the car”

Some of the physical feature changes include slimmer front headlamps with optional multifaceted reflector MFR LED technology and new V-shaped signature LED daytime running lights (DRLs) complete the renewed, modern front end design.

We go to the rear of the vehicle and we’re greeted with the enhanced new bumper design, developed to improve aerodynamic performance. Accompanied by the LED rear combination lamps to create a V-shape for a symmetrical effect between the front and the back.

To follow suit across the range, the N-line range is included within the enhancements this model sees for 2020 - including the Fastback edition vehicle. With a fresh trim edition to the new N-line range, both the Hatchback and Fastback models have seen extensive changes.

  • The new i30 N Line features bold new design with an even sportier look. At the front, the New i30 N Line has a wider central grille and new headlamps.
  • Taking inspiration from the design of aeronautic jets, the lower central grille has increased in size and dominates the bumper area, expressing its strong stance and performance.
  • The side openings feature floating wings which improve aerodynamic performance.
  • The wide diffuser makes a sporty statement and a gives the rear an impressive stance, while the repositioned fog lights focus the visual centre of gravity closer to the ground.

The interior design of the New i30 also features updates such as more refined and modern air vents. One new interior garnish colour has been added: Pewter Grey. This is in addition to the existing Black. The seats can be covered in cloth, or a combination of both cloth & leather for a total of four possible options.


A new 7-inch digital cluster and a new 10.25-inch navigation touchscreen enable a more modern and individual driving experience. It also offers full compatibility with Android Auto and Apple Car Play. Starting in summer 2020, wireless phone mirroring will be introduced, meaning customers do not require a cable to connect their phone. Similarly, the New i30 offers wireless phone charging.
