New Generation Hyundai i30 wins Carsales Family Car of the Year

At Peninsula Motor Group, we're quite used to offering our customers across New South Wales award-winning Hyundai vehicles. That's why we are so excited about announcing that one of our favorites, the 2017 Hyundai i30 has been awarded the 2017 Carsales Family Car of the Year. According to Carsales, this prestigious award uses, "expert evaluation, comprehensive data, and consumer sentiment to recognize Australia’s best new cars from the hundreds of new vehicles available in the local marketplace." Each year, after this extensive search, a small selection of finalist are chosen and then subjected to rigorous testing and evaluation. This year our own 2017 Hyundai i30 not only made this select group but also, in the end, triumphed and was named Best Family Car under-$30,000. According to Carsales Editor-in-Chief, Mike Sinclair,

“Our awards are a multi-faceted process and Hyundai’s i30 was a standout, the judges all commenting that it easily blends overall comfort and refinement with handling ability."

In order to understand why this outstanding small car is an award-winner, we need to take a closer look at all it has to offer.

What Makes the 2017 Hyundai i30 So Special
Available in six trim levels and a variety of attractive exterior colours, there are multiple reasons the premium small car is attracting so much attention. As far as performance, the Hyundai i30 offers a choice of three different engines including the powerful 1.6-liter T-GDi 16-valve DOHC turbocharged engine that produces 150 kW of horsepower at 6,000 rpm and 265 Nm of torque at 1,500-4,500 rpm. To control all this power you have a choice of a six-speed manual, six-speed automatic, or the exciting seven-speed DCT with sequential manual mode. Depending on which trim you choose, your fuel consumption can be as low as a combined 4.5 L/100km.
