With all the action on Hyundai’s stand this year, I very nearly walked past what looked like a nice clean, but stock i30 CRDi, until I noticed a subtle “Sport” badge on the tailgate.
On closer inspection I also noticed the stylish dual exhaust tips, rear diffuser and superb carbon look, sports wheels. The car also had a lower front bumper with integrated radiator grille, air intakes and fog lamps.
There were one or two additions inside the car too with a metal finish gear knob, and a dash mounted Satellite Navigation System. Other than those items, the car appeared to be a standard i30 CRDi.
As part of the Sports Pack, there should also have been a set of all-alloy pedals, something this show car did not have fitted.
The i30 has been a massive sales success for Hyundai in every market it has chosen to enter, and this new Sports Pack option currently available in Europe only, will only help to increase the car’s popularity and appeal.
At this stage, I can’t confirm whether this option will be available in Australia, but I’m reasonably certain it would be a welcome addition to any new or used i30. Note, there is a body kit which is being developed in Australia for the i30 although, I am told it doesn’t include the dual exhausts or several other items, which come with the European Sports Pack.
