Could debut at 2016 Paris Motor Show.
The Hyundai i30 is currently in its second generation. The second generation i30 was introduced at the 2011 Frankfurt Motor Show and given a facelift in December 2014.
As development of the next-gen Hyundai i30 continues globally, a test mule has been spied in China revealing some exterior and interior details. The 2017 Hyundai i30 appears to have headlamps, hexagonal grille, foglamps and door mirrors similar to those of the 2016 Hyundai Elantra. Inside, the all-new i30 seems to have black-white two-tone upholstery, chrome or aluminium trim on the door handles and rear HVAC vents.
