What engine is under the bonnet? Maybe its one of the ‘R’ series 2.0lt or 2.2lt, that would be worthy of the sport badge, even without alloy pedals!
Doubt they would bring a performance engine as the price would go well above the $30K mark……
Put a 2.0/2.2 R in this? Where can I get one? I’m sold!
390ish or 436Nm torque! That’d blow most if not all cars in the segment!
Please Hyundai make it a real ‘Sport’ and not a wannabe that will only draw criticism for being a ho hum effort to try and lure some boy racers………
I think it is fair to say that Hyundai owned this year’s Frankfurt!
Well if Hyundai “owned it”, Then Im guessing no one else showed up or they had something heaps better than this i30 with bob jane aftermarket wheels
They had a million different things Andrew. Where have you been???
Obviously not in Frankfurt otherwise I wouldnt have clearly made an assumption.
Feel free to enlighten me……….
I just find it hard to believe that their “A game” vehicles could out shine other manufacturers “A Game” vehicles
Looks like this is a Czech-build i30. They are now being delivered with the ‘U2′ engine (94kW 260Nm) with next-gen Bosch Common Rail system and 6 speed manual across the board. Not sure about Korean built cars tho.
I doubt this “sport” version has any engine upgrade,it starts to run out of “puff” at approximately 4,800rpm.Although,it does have the customary “sport” items like the cosmetic touches e.g special paint,exhausts and alloy wheels etc.
Could even qualify as a Toyota ‘edge’ special edition!!!
Fasthonda you are a twit if you think that you need to rev this engine to 4800……….
Either that or you just don’t have a clue about diesel engines/You’ve spent to long in your Civic Type R and think revving the @#$% off an engine is the only way a car can be made to go………
A sport badge…..combined with some extra engine torque means you end up in court
This is the stock European Sport Pack with different wheels and an integrated sat nav.
I know of at least four owners with this body kit (myself being one).
The kit is by MS Design and comes with the spoilers, front and rear diffusers and “cough” the dual exhausts are purely cosmetic – they are not actually connected to the system. One owner I know of has fitted a proper dual system to his i30 Sport.
I suspect that the engine is standard as the i30 Sport has been available in Europe since launch and none of ours have uprated engines or suspension, just the cosmetic changes.
Don’t let that put you off though – it’s still a great car!
Car Advice, can we have a pic of the front please?
