i30.The multiple-award winning hatch just got better

To create the all-new i30, Hyundai went to the heart of modern automotive design, Europe. They hand–picked the design team, housed them in their purpose built, state of the art Hyundai Design Studio in Russelsheim Germany, then handed them a single challenge: Take the all-new generation i30 beyond the expected.

You’re going to read a bit about ‘Fluidic sculpture’. This nifty turn of phrase is the design philosophy that underpins every new Hyundai. The all-new i30 is another step forward for this progressive concept. The goal was to create a new Hyundai born for the roads of Europe - yet destined to turn heads around the world and here in New Zealand. The result is the sporty, dynamic exterior you can see here and it clearly sets the all-new i30 apart from the rest of the small car category.

The crucial design element at the heart of the New Generation Hyundai i30 is the creation of a softer, lower character line rising up the car's side. Look at it and you find your eye is irresistibly drawn along the all-new i30. It appears to be always in motion, even when it’s parked.

This video is from our cousins in Australia but gives you a great i30 experience!

 The video is very centred on Australia, but you can be sure that the New Zealand version has also been specifically tuned for NZ conditions. The i30 features some great new technology like the hidden reversing camera and 3 different settings for the steering to enable you to get the feel from the car that best suits how you like to drive.

Meet the Bowater Hyundai Team

Its all about the classics for Sean.

2019 hyundai sean 500

Sean joined the team in the early autumn of 2019, and comes with a local automotive industry pedigree stretching back a number of years. He is passionate about cars and customer service, and is very knowledgable in the aftersales space, so look forward to some excellent customer service!

Sean is one of the lucky few to own a Honda s2000. He is very enthusiastic about original state classics, infact his s2000 still has a cassette player in it even though he doesn't have any cassettes - lets see if we can rememdy that!

Come on down and have a chat, bring an old cassette tape, and have a fresh brewed coffee or cup of tea whilst getting your vehicle sorted.
