Hyundai: we donít need another hero

A TURBOCHARGED version of the Hyundai i30 has gone on sale in the UK, but itís unlikely to come here. Available as both a three-door (right) and five-door, the i30 Turbo essentially replaces the Veloster Turbo, which was dumped in the UK due to slow sales. Powered by the Velosterís 1.6-litre turbo four, the 137kW i30 covers 0-100km/h in a claimed 8.0sec. Hyundai Oz says thereís no chance of the Veloster leaving local showrooms as itís a solid sales performer: 3405 were sold here in 2014, and an i30 Turbo offering would only cannibalise sales.
