Hyundai has announced a new addition to the Hyundai i30 lineup; the i30 three-door Special Edition. It’s a sporty three-door version of the popular hatch, and it’s the first time it’s been made available in Australia.

New Hyundai i30 3-Door Special Edition

Although there are no dramatic changes or tweaks to the powertrain, the Special Edition comes with the company’s renowned ‘Gamma’ 1.6-litre direct injection four-cylinder engine producing 98kW of power and 163Nm of torque.

Matched to a six-speed manual transmission, the outfit offers an official fuel economy rating of 6.3L/100km, or 6.9L/100km when connected to the six-speed auto option.

Based on the regular five-door, the three-door version comes with slightly more raked and sporty A-pillars, longer front doors for easier rear access, as well as a passenger ‘walk-in’ device, and a revised rear bumper bar with new hexagonal fog lights and an LED-infused rear spoiler.

Standard features include 16-inch alloy wheels, rear parking sensors, a speed limiter function so the driver can set the car’s speed limit (can be overridden with full throttle), a five-inch multimedia interface on the dash, and a 378-litre boot.

Hyundai is offering the special in five exterior colours, including Creamy White (solid), Cool Red (solid), Sleek Silver (metallic), Aqua Blue (metallic), and Phantom Black.

1.6-litre GDi manual – $19,990 drive away*
