Hyundai i30 hits half a million sales mark

The Hyundai i30 has sold over half a million examples since going on sale a little over five years ago, amounting to an average of nearly 100,000 units sold per year.

It’s been a strong performer in the UK too, with Hyundai having sold 59,000 i30s in Britain.

The Hyundai i30 continues to be a strong performer – just last month the model accounted for a whopping 24% of the firm’s total sales. With the i10 city car, superb i20 supermini, the elegant and efficient i40 and even more practical i40 Tourer, ix35 crossover and the new Santa Fe 4×4, it’s no mean feat.

The Hyundai i30 has been influential in driving the Korean firm’s global sales as well, which recently surpassed 1 million units.

Looking at the Hyundai range it’s easy to see why.

Quality, performance efficiency and value for money – as well as European style and engineering – are all key character traits of the firm’s model line-up.

The i30 offers ease of ownership, with T W White and Sons’ special prices starting from £13,851.

With a powerful and economical 128hp 1.6-litre turbodiesel offering 0-62mph in 10.9 seconds yet returning 74.3mpg combined with 108g/km CO2 emissions, you really can have your cake and eat it.

In Premium trim – as you might have guessed – there are plenty of premium features fitted as standard.

Bluetooth with voice recognition, cruise and climate control, rear view camera and parking guidance system, touchscreen satellite navigation, automatic headlights and wipers and 17-inch alloy wheels all come fitted as standard.

Senior Vice President and Chief Operating Officer of Hyundai Motor Europe, Alan Rushforth:

“Since launch in 2007, the i30 has become the centre of gravity for our brand in Europe. It was our first car to be designed and made here, offering customers high quality, low emissions and great value – characteristics now synonymous with the Hyundai brand.”
