Hyundai has teased its third-generation i30 lower medium model ahead of its unveiling on 7 September and the car's public debut at next month's Paris motor show.
The South Korean car maker has not released any powertrain information other than saying it will offer an "efficient and dynamic line-up".
At the moment, the Ford Focus rival - which is offered in five-door, three door and estate formats - is powered by five engines, the most frugal of which is the 110hp 1.6-litre diesel unit which emits 94g/km of CO2, placing it in the 18% 2016/17 BIK tax bracket.
"The i30 is a car for everybody. From a design perspective, we haven't just considered one customer; we have focused on a wide range of different people," claimed Peter Schreyer, president and chief design officer at Hyundai. "This model showcases an evolution of Hyundai design language with natural flowing lines, refined surfaces and a sculpted body to create a timeless appearance."
