A restyle of the Hyundai i30, Active and Elite hatchbacks for 2021 brings them into line with the new Hyundai i30 sedan launched a few months back.

Every 2021 i30 Hatch model now has alloy wheels, an upgraded 8.0-inch multimedia system with wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity, and a 7.0-inch colour LCD Supervision cluster.

The i30 hatchback Active now has a leather interior and larger, 17-inch alloy wheels.

The tech-focused Hyundai i30 Elite has a 10.25-inch navigation unit, Infinity premium audio and a Smart key & push button start.

The sporty N Line variant is powered by a 150kW 1.6 turbo-petrol engine, sports suspension. It now has LED headlights.

Topline Hyundai N Line Premium combines i30 luxury features with N Line performance enhancements in a single package.

The standard SmartSense suite in every version of the i30 hatchback now includes collision-avoidance assist, driver attention warning, lane keeping and lane following assist.

Other i30 Hatch grades also have blind-spot collision warning, rear cross-traffic collision warning and smart cruise control – however the latter is only in automatic and DCT variants.

2021 i30 hatchback is available in seven exterior colours – Polar White, Phantom Black, Fluidic Metal and Amazon Grey, Intense Blue, Fiery Red. Of course the vibrant N Line-specific Lava Orange is a standout and likely to be the biggest seller.
