NEW DELHI, India, April 26, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via PRWEB - Hyundai
Motors, a well known brand in India has already carved its niche in the Indian
automotive market as it has become the second largest car manufacturer in
India. The South Korean car major is one of the first to enter the Indian
automotive market after the Government of India opened its shores to foreign
majors. Hyundai's Santro and Accent once ruled the Indian car market. Lately,
Hyundai i-Series has been able to acquire a major market share.
Riding on the popularity of Hyundai i10 and Hyundai i20, the company is all
set to launch Hyundai i30 in India. The model has already been established
worldwide as Hyundai has been manufacturing it since 2007. On the occasion of
its launch in India, Gaadi.com reviews the first drive of Hyundai i30.
"We drove Hyundai i30 today at the Formula 1 track of Yeongam, South Korea and
we were certainly quite impressed by the car's performance. Here is our first
drive impression of Hyundai's premium hatchback, the i30." Said a spokesperson
He further added, "Firstly the car is based on Hyundai's famous fluidic design
philosophy, which we have already experienced in Hyundai Verna. Its interior
too seems quite futuristic in design. Secondly, the driving experience is mind
blowing. You can call it as 'effortless driving'. This is one of the rare cars
where you don't feel anything in particular as every component is precisely
designed and correctly placed and you become part of this marvelously designed
The car packs a 1.4 litre Gamma petrol engine. It runs smoothly on 100bhp at
500rpm and churns out an easy 139Nm of torque at 4200rpm. The CO emission is
well within limits, which means that the engine performs well by taking care
of fuel economy too. Much bigger than i20, it bears the usual Hyundai
trappings such as blue backlighting for instrument cluster. Safety has also
been taken into consideration with head restraints for the driver and front
passenger, side impact bars, seat belts and six airbags.
Hyundai is launching the petrol version this year. However, soon i30's diesel
version with smooth and quiet 128bhp diesel engine is also to follow.
Initially the car is coming in seven shades namely White, Black, Red, Blue,
Brown, Silver and Grey. Its price would be one lakh more than i20's sticker
price, which means that the car would be in the price band of Rs. 6-10 Lakh.
Considering the features, Hyundai i30 will certainly be proved a winner in its
segment. Till then car enthusiasts have to wait…….
