Made its debut in the new Hyundai i30.

The cascading grille makes its debut in the 2017 Hyundai i30, which replaces the horizontal slats on the outgoing i30 and Elantra GT. It features chrome-plated dots, unique mesh pattern and a satin chrome bezel, which give the face a premium look.

According to Hyundai’s design boss Peter Schreyer, the cascading grille can be scaled up and down to work on models ranging from the Hyundai i10 to the Hyundai Santa Fe. In these products, it could be introduced during the mid-cycle facelift or when it jumps to the next generation. The first all-new Hyundai to get this feature could be the i20-based B-Segment SUV that arrives within 18 months.
