The Turbo arrives after a whole raft of updates for the i30, with a refreshed engine range Hyundai say increases both performance and efficiency.

The new range of Euro-6 compliant motors includes two diesel options in the guise of a 1.6-litre motor pumping out either 109 or 134bhp.

If you want petrol there’s a 1.4 litre motor that produces 99bhp or a non-turbocharged version of the 1.6 which will give out 118bhp.

Hyundai say the 1.4 will manage 50mpg and CO2 emissions of 129 g/km CO2 and the addition of such tech as start/stop can see it dip down below the zero-tax rate of 100g/km.

Outside the i30 has a had a bit of a midlife refresh, but a barely noticeable one, and the non-turbo range is on sale now.
