Hyundai pulled the wraps off of the European-designed i30 hatchback onwards of the Paris Motor Show, and the automaker confirmed that it wishes appear in the United States next grow under the Elantra GT name.

The exaggerated curves and swoops from the above-named model were discarded in favor of straighter, subtler lines. According to Hyundai, the i30 represents the later of the brand’s design, and the “Cascading Grille” choice be its signature. On the inside, the i30 features a wide dashboard that is marginally less driver-oriented than the Elantra sedan. Hyundai also uses a touchscreen set out from the shatter, which is popular yet polarizing with consumers.

In annexe to being styled in Europe, other parts of the i30 were also developed and tested greater than there, and the car even spent some patch at the Nurburgring. The chassis is 22-percent stiffer and steering that is 10-percent more superintend, Hyundai says. The car also features a McPherson prance front suspension and multi-link self-assured rear suspension. Europeans will get a number of engine choices, but only one of them is proper to come here: a turbocharged 1.4-liter gas four-cylinder that makes thither 140 horsepower. The other engines are smaller and less effective gas engines and variations on a 1.6-liter diesel. It’s also attainable that it could get the naturally aspirated 2.0-liter machine in the Elantra, or the turbo 1.6-liter appliance in the Veloster Turbo and other Hyundais.

Hyundai also announced the i30 would produce a few variants. It didn’t give any specifics on core styles aside from saying the i30 would keep a “family of unique products.” The i30 will be the primary Hyundai with an N version. For those out of the twist, N is the performance brand Hyundai has been preparing to send. The company also said the i30 N would make one’s appearance in 2017. Hyundai only confirmed with us that the model i30 would be coming to America, but it would form sense for Hyundai to bring the hot version as well enough, even if it comes a little later than in Europe and/or South Korea. We certainly wouldn’t convert it down, especially if it sounds like the widespread prototype.
