Hyundai refreshed the third generation of its compact-sized i30 at the beginning of 2024, continuing its assault in the European mass-market hatchback segment where it had to face the well-known VW Golf and the Renault Megane.

While Hyundai replaced the first two generations of the i30 just five years after their launch, it surely slowed down the pace with the third iteration of this nameplate. This was introduced in 2016 and was refreshed in 2020. But then, the world pandemic started. To add insult to injury, the microchip crisis affected the car industry as well. As a result, the Korean automaker didn’t come up with a new generation of the i30 in 2021, as expected. Moreover, it didn’t do that even in 2024, but with a second facelift, which was an unusual decision. The model’s sales were far from the six figures prior to 2020, and Hyundai tried to keep the car on the green side of the charts for as long as possible. Meanwhile, its engineering department had its hands full in developing new electric and electrified vehicles, which enjoyed great success. So, instead of creating a fourth generation of the i30, it came with a refresh that helped the car stay on the market for a little bit more.

There were some mild changes on the car’s front compared to the 2020 model year. It featured a redesigned front grille that was black instead of gray. The lower bumper still had the triangular side scoops, albeit with a new design that integrated piano-black trims and round fog lamps. Between them, the automaker placed a black A-shaped air intake that helped to improve engine cooling and other components of the i30. One of the most significant upgrades to the vehicle was the standard LED headlights, which were offered as an option for its non-facelifted sibling.

Hyundai made almost no changes to the car’s profile, albeit there were a few new options for the 16-inch alloy wheels. In addition, the car was available in 12 different colors, seven of which were new. A significant upgrade was noticed at the car’s back, where the automaker installed a pair of new LED taillights. Besides the standard version, the automaker also offered an N-Line trim level, which added twin exhausts at the back and distinctive gray aerodynamic elements on the side sills, bumpers, and a unique set of 17 or 18-inch N-Line alloy wheel designs.

Inside, there were also barely visible changes to the vehicle. However, customers could still get the 2024 i30 with a choice of four types of upholstery, ranging from regular cloth materials to full leather or a mix between textile suede and leather. Inside the instrument cluster, Hyundai installed two large dials for the speedometer and tachometer that flanked a 4.2-inch color display. As an option, customers could get a fully digital instrument panel. They also had three USB type-C charging ports at the front and OTA updates for the map. Atop the center stack, the i30 was available with a 10.25-inch touchscreen for the infotainment unit. Those looking for a sportier interior could get the N-Line trim, which added high-bolstered front seats instead of the regular bucket-type ones provided by the rest of the i30 range.

Under the hood, the automaker introduced a new engine, which was available with a 48-volt architecture for the mild-hybrid system drivetrain.
