Hyundai i30 facelift gets spied image

Hyundai is getting ready to introduce a facelifted version of the popular i30 as the model in question has been caught on camera while it was being tested out.

Originally launched back in 2011, during the Frankfurt Motor Show, the Hyundai i30 is now getting ready to receive an updated version, three years later, which should turn a lot of heads once more. The model in question has been caught on camera by our spy photographers while it was being tested out and we can notice the light camouflage on its front fascia which is hiding the most significant updates of the car.

The 2015 Hyundai i30 is believed to get an updated front grille, along with a new front bumper and probably some changes made to its headlights. The downsizing trend could be continued under its hood where we are expecting the 1.2 liter T-GDI engine, part of the Kappa family, which has four cylinders, 16 valves and a 1,248 cc displacement. We’re not sure how much the unit is producing but it does emit less than 110 g/km of CO2. We are expecting approximately 120 HP, similar to what Renault is offering with the 1.2 TCe.
