Korean automobile giant Hyundai has released images of the next generation 2017 Hyundai i30 ahead of its world debut at the upcoming Paris Motor Show. Bigger than the Elite i20, the i30 is sold in international markets and the earlier gen was also on display at the Auto Expo 2016. This fueled rumours of i30’s India launch. It is being said that 2017 Hyundai i30 India launch will happen in late 2017. Prices of the 2017 Hyundai i30 in India are likely to start at around INR 9 lakhs. The new version will go on sale in international markets early next year. With demand for premium hatchbacks on the rise in India, Hyundai might consider bringing it to our shores as well. Here’s all the info on the 2017 Hyundai i30 India launch date and price.

The demand for premium hatchbacks has grown in the past few year with cars such as the Hyundai i20 and Maruti Baleno tasting tremendous success. However, the 2017 Hyundai i30 is a much bigger and a more premium offering than those two. Therefore, it will be significantly more expensive with prices falling in the sedan and small SUV territory. We’re not sure if the Indian market is mature enough for such a product. At the same time, however, the i20, when launched in India for the first time, wasn’t expected to taste as much success as it did. The 2017 Hyundai i30 could be an interesting addition to Hyundai’s lineup in India
