Hyundai unveiled its next-generation i30 at the 2011 Frankfurt International Motor Show. The new i30 was designed and engineered at the Hyundai Motor Europe Technical Centre in Rüsselsheim, Germany, and offers a choice of four engines with a total of six power options and CO2 emissions below 100 g/km due to an upgraded 1.6-litre diesel unit. The next-generation i30 went on sale in Europe early in 2012 as a five-door hatchback. It is produced in Europe at the company's manufacturing facility in Nošovice, Czech Republic.
It was launched in South Korea since October 20, 2011 and it is the second model under Hyundai's Premium Youth Lab brand. The new Korean-spec i30 is offered with a 1.6L Gamma GDi engine and a 1.6L VGT diesel engine.
The second-generation i30 is available in the USA as of the summer of 2012 as the 2013 Hyundai Elantra GT, replacing the Elantra Touring nameplate. It made a premiere at the 2012 Chicago Auto Show along with the new Hyundai Elantra Coupe, featuring the same 1.8L Nu MPI engine as the original Elantra MD sedan.
The wagon shares the same wheelbase as the hatchback and adds 185mm in length. The increased length yields an extra 150 litres of boot capacity, taking the total to 528 litres. With the rear seats folded the total cargo capacity is 1642 litres, an increase of 326 litres over the hatch.
Introduced in early 2013, the aim of the three-door version is to attract younger buyers to the i30. The grille is given a more aggressive look than the five-door model.
In 2015 Hyundai introduced hot hatch version of the i30.
