2012 Hyundai i30 is currently exhibited at the Frankfurt Motor Show.

The hatchback can be ordered with one of six different engines with outputs between 90PS (66 kW) and 135PS (99 kW). The engines can be mated to either 6-speed manual or 6-speed automatic gearbox. This guarantees nice performance and low fuel consumption.

The suspension includes independent subframe-mounted MacPherson struts, with coil springs and gas-filled shock absorbers at the front and independent subframe-mounted multi-links, coil springs and gas-filled shock absorbers at the rear.

The stopping power is guaranteed thanks to a 15" or 16" ventilated discs up front and 14" solid discs at the rear.

The wheel choice includes 15",16" and 17" alloy wheels fitted with 195 / 65 R15, 205 / 55 R16 and 225 / 45 R17, respectively.
