Hyundai i30 facelift gets spied image

The South Korean based automaker Hyundai is currently testing out the facelifted version of its popular C-segment hatchback, the i30.

The direct competitor for the Volkswagen Golf 7, for the Renault Megane, the Peugeot 308, the Ford Focus and so on is getting ready to be updated for the 2016 model year. The vehicle in question has been caught on camera while it was being tested and we can notice the camouflaged front fascia, rear end and sides, which is a good hint that the model will get some significant updates.

The 2016 Hyundai i30 will get a new front bumper, different headlights, updated taillights, a refreshed rear bumper and probably some modifications made to the doors or to the door handles. The interior design of the popular vehicle will be updated too and so will the engine lineup, which will adopt the 1.2 liter T-GDI, which should produce somewhere at 120 HP, matching the 1.2 TCe made by Renault. Safety systems such as the lane keep assist will be found on the car as the camera mounted at the top of the windshield suggests. The updated Hyundai i30 will be officially presented to the public next year, during the 2015 Geneva Motor Show.
