New i30 SW arrives more elegant and with new version N Line

Hyundai has decided to renew the i30 range and bet heavily on the ‘restyling’ it has in the SW version, one of its main bets for the national market, not least because the Portuguese continue to be fans of this type of models.

The South Korean brand reinforced the arguments of the Hyundai i30 SW, namely in the N Line line, introduced for the first time in the i30 Station Wagon, which now appears with a more muscular image, enhanced by a wider central grid, new optical groups and a unique front design inspired by the aerodynamics of jet planes, the lower central grille has increased dominating the entire bumper area, in an expression of robustness and performance.

At the rear, the bumper features a new design that highlights the dynamic character of the N Line, while the repositioned fog lights put the center nearest visual severity

In the case of the variant tested, the exterior image is reinforced with the introduction of 17 “alloy wheels, or in an option of 18

In the interior, Hyundai’s bet has undergone occasional changes in order to reinforce the positive points of this model, among which are the ergonomics.

In this way the new i30 SW is equipped with the latest connectivity technology, where the new 7-inch digital instrument panel and the new 10.25-inch touchscreen navigation system stand out, offering a modern and personalized driving experience. This system is also fully compatible with Android Auto and Apple Car Play.

In addition, the new Hyundai van is equipped for the first time with all the features of Bluelink Hyundai technology, which allows access to real-time information and vehicle control, all through a mobile application.

The Hyundai i30 SW, presents itself as a family proposal and for this should be noted that the luggage capacity is 602 liters, expandable to 1,500 liters, with the rear seats folded.

It should be noted that the passengers in the seat rear, travel comfortably and with legroom, taking advantage of the new van’s 4,585 mm in length and 1,795 mm in width, 1,475 in height.

It is true that the new i30 SW continues to make use of hard materials inside, but Hyundai did a good job in the assembly, since the absence of parasitic noises is notorious, even when driving on roads with the most degraded floor.

Details that we are facing an N Line variant are not lacking in the interior of this model, starting with the lever of the six-speed gearbox bearing the well-known ‘N’, passing through the aluminum pedals or the steering wheel.

The version we tested is equipped with a 1.0 TGDi block of 120 hp and a torque between 1500 and 4000 rpm, which allows reaching a maximum speed of 196 km / h and acceleration from 0 to 100 km / in 11.4 seconds, an engine that impresses with its responsiveness when requested by the accelerator.

Although we are behind the wheel of a van, the truth is that the 120 hp of power, prove to be sufficient to perform more dynamic rhythms and befitting the N Line line, namely on the motorway, the terrain of choice for this model, which stable and secure, benefiting from a braking system equipped with ventilated discs in the front and solid discs in the rear axle.

Don’t think, however, that the new i30 SW disappoints on winding roads. It is on these types of roads that the driver is able to take advantage of a direct and precise direction that equips this model, as well as a smooth and precise gearbox when changing gears, making it clear that the new bet of the N Line variant is a model for the whole family, even for those who like to have fun driving a van.

After just over three hours behind the wheel of the new i30 N Line, it was easy to notice the McPherson type and Multi-Link front suspension at the rear, they continue to allow a good balance between comfort and dynamics, even when it comes to the N Line variant.

In terms of driving assistance and safety systems, the new i30 SW N Line is full of aids, with an emphasis on the Hyundai SmartSensee package, which features lane assistance which automatically adjusts the steering to help keep the vehicle in the center of the road.

and rear vehicle traffic can activate the brakes to prevent a collision while reversing, while the front vehicle start alert warns the driver when the vehicle in front of them starts moving in cases where there is a delay reaction, for example, at traffic lights.

With regard to consumption, we achieved in the small test carried out averages of 5.6 l / 100 km liters at 100 km, which shot up to 6.9 l / 100 km, when we decided to take advantage of the dynamic potential of this model, which seems acceptable in terms of consumption combined announced by Hyundai which is 6.2 l / 100 km.

Hyundai has already made it known that the prices of the new i30 SW start at 23,500 euros, while the tested N Line version of the six-speed manual gearbox, has a price that starts at 26,500 euros, for a proposal to be taken into account in a segment that continues to give cards in the national market
