Hyundai Australia has increased the pricing of its current-generation i30 small car.
Regular i30 variants are $250 more expensive, while their performance-focused i30 N counterparts are $500 dearer.
A Hyundai Australia spokesperson told CarsGuide the company has “been absorbing exchange-rate pressures for some time but has now been forced to increase prices”.
As such, the i30 now ranges in price from $20,240 to $42,490 plus on-road costs (see full pricing table below). Specification hasn’t changed.
The Mazda3 rival is still available in seven grades: Go, Active, N-Line, N-Line Premium, Elite, Premium and N, the latter of which can be had as a hatch or a Fastback sedan.
A 120kW/203Nm 2.0-litre naturally aspirated four-cylinder petrol engine is available in the Go, Active, Elite and Premium alongside a 100kW/300Nm 1.6-litre turbo-diesel unit. Both are mated to either a six-speed manual or a six-speed torque-converter automatic.
Buyers only have one option in the N-Line and N-Line Premium, a 150kW/265Nm 1.6-litre turbo-petrol engine matched to either the manual or a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic.
The N is manual only and gets a 202kW/353Nm 2.0-litre turbo-petrol unit, although it produces up to 378Nm of torque on overboost.
As reported, a mid-life facelift for the i30 is due in the second half of this year, while an updated i30 N will arrive early next year with the option of an eight-speed dual-clutch automatic.
