The updated 2021 Hyundai i30 hatch range has arrived in Australia priced from $23,420 plus on-road costs.
For 2021, the range has been tweaked, the entry-level i30 Go has been replaced with the i30. The starting price has increased by $2980, however, the safety kit from the former  $1750 option package is now included as standard.
Up from the base i30 is the Active, Elite, N Line and N Line Premium variants.
Externally, the updated i30 is distinguished by a wider front grille with an accentuated 3D pattern, slimmer LED headlamps, new V-shaped signature LED daytime running lights and redesigned alloy wheels.
At the rear, there’s a new bumper design which was developed to improve aerodynamic performance, along with LED combination lamps that create a V-shape for a symmetrical effect between the front and the back.
Buyers can choose from seven exterior colours: Fluidic Metal, Amazon Grey, Polar White, Phantom Black, Intense Blue, Fiery Red and Lava Orange (N Line-only).
On the inside, buyers will find new air vents (including standard rear vents), Pewter Grey trim, wireless smartphone charging, a 7.0-inch digital instrument cluster, and a new 10.25-inch navigation touchscreen with wireless Apple Car Play and Android Auto compatibility.
Every variant also gets an updated SmartSense safety suite every that now includes Collision-Avoidance Assist, Driver Attention Warning, Lane Keeping Assist and Lane Following Assist.
