Hyundai is revising its i30 range with new engines and trim levels, with prices starting from £12,000.

The new entry-level model will be called Classic available with 1.4 petrol or 1.6 CRDI diesel engines. Standard equipment includes ESP, air conditioning and electric front windows. The diesel will cost from £12,950 making it £1,140 cheaper than the current entry-level diesel model.

Range-topping Premium model benefits from a reduction of £1,200 and includes 17-inch alloy wheels, reversing sensors, half leather upholstery and climate control as standard. Full leather – standard on 2009 model – is available as a £650 option.

Hyundai is also offering Intelligent Stop and Go (ISG) as a special order option for the range. Hyundai says adding the technology to the 1.6 CDRi Classic drops CO2 from 115g/km to 110g/km in the hatchback, whilst the same estate version with ISG lowers CO2 from 124g/km to 119g/km, saving drivers £85 per year in road tax.

The new i30 range will go on sale from January 4.
