Thanks for the great post. Any word on the release date to dealers?
The A league finals start this weekend.
Watch for the advert. Entertainment in itself and maybe a date.

 :welcumwagon: Thanks for that (I'm guessing it's $2000 more for the Auto?) I do typos like that all the time...  :goodjob2:

Be interesting to see how that pans out.
About $1000 more than I was told.

Today I got a call from my local dealer, They have a new PD i30 Elite in stock - I immediately went down for a test drive, because I thought it was still a couple of weeks away.

I30 Elite White with optional roof - John @ Doncaster Hyundai, tell him Norman with the i20 sent you, if your interested :)

Seams a nice car, i felt that the roof was a little lower then the previous model, but maybe that was because of the roof, took it on the freeway, drove like a big car, and the lane departure system works great!. The smart cruse control is also amazing, I really like it.

But then john told me the prices .. . A Premium diesel is the same price as the SR Premium and came to a total cost of $39,090 and when I asked for $5,000 off her laughed at me .. .

But overall a nice upgrade from the GD model, will be interesting too see how popular it is with the pricing, I should think Hyundai will adjust the prices in a couple of months, or i hope anyway..

Not bad for the base model Active   

A large 8-inch display with rear-view camera, integrated satellite navigation, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and DAB+ digital radio, 16-inch alloy wheels, LED daytime lights and automatic headlights, hill-start assist and a tyre-pressure monitoring system.

what we have been waiting for, very surprised
:link: 2017 Hyundai i30 pricing and specs: All-new hatch promises top value
Ive been out today but that arrived in my email marked confidential for internal and dealer use only.
However, it shoots down that $39000 price quoted above.

Now, wait for the high impact advertisement on TV.

Yeah i was shocked at the claimed $39000 price at first, but that would be drive-away price. The prices in the link are before on-roads which are around $5000.

I am surprised to hear that the dealer is already showing the car. Thought the release was May.

I was expecting not much over $35,000 imo that's good value, but $39,000 is to much, my guess is that because Doncaster Hyundai is the dealer in Victoria to get one in the show room, they will adjust the pricing the suit them. He told me the Active is $25,000 on road and a Elite is $34,000, with the Premium matching the SR premiums price of $39,000 - including metallic paint too.

To be honest $39000 is a good deal for the Diesel Premium, the GD is $35000. Did they explain how much you actually get in the PD? Cause its ALOT.
Doncaster can't really set their own pricing, you can go on Hyundai Australia website and do a drive-away quote in 20sec, although the PD isn't in the calculator yet.

I say this as a fan of Hyundai, At this stage I think its overpriced. You get nothing more the what you get in a Mazda 3 Astina for $37,000 - And the Elite model needs to have the 1.4 t engine option added, because the step up from Active to Elite is too much. Hyundai is not stupid they will tune their range to accomodate buyers and sales, in the end thats all they want. But at this stage I would buy a GD Premium over the PD.

Mazda 3 Astina starts at $39800 for auto if we are comparing apples with apples.

OK.

I've been away in Brisbane.
This is the actual text from Bill Thomas' email to Neville and me.

I thought both were confidential but the press release obviously isn't.

However, I also have the Product Bulletin which is 25 pages long in a PDF. As that's intended for dealer internal use only, maybe It's best if I just try to answer questions from its contents as the need arises.

     Dear Justin, Trevor and Neville,

Please excuse the delay getting this material to you.

Please find attached the press release we issued to media earlier today about the new i30, along with an internal product bulletin with full details on the car. Please donít forward that bulletin on to anyone, itís supposed to be for internal use!

Below, please find images from the day from Lisa at Tonic, along with links to other material.

Great meeting you on the day, hope to see you again at some point in the future.

Kind regards,

BT

Have they replaced the carpet with something better?

After cleaning out the Wife's i30, I had forgotten just how bad it is  :whistler:

I don't know.
I'm ambivalent about car carpets so I didn't pay any attention to it.

dropped into the local dealer today to have a sticky at the new PD. They had 3 on the lot and two in the showroom. 3 active 1 diesel and one SR.
First impression, well to be honest a little disappointing, it's possible that I have gotten a little over excited about the new model and the styling has not blown me away.  It's not ugly at all, I do like the front end and the wheels are very nice.
The PDs sitting there amongst at the GDs I could not help think " boy Hyundai really did a good job on the styling of the GDs."
GD's styling certainly aggressive and the PD a bit meh. I'm sure the new PD will grow on me but maybe more of a reason to wait for the n, which I'm sure will have an aggressive look.

Nice production but doesn't really do much for me about launching the new model.  :crazy2:

I went into Motors Hyundai today to check out the PD. But they still don't have any!  :fum:

Got 5 different models coming and a launch event earmarked for 19th May (including a driving simulator) I might have to copy their software for ours!  :whistler:

Had a brief glimpse over a PD yesterday in the showroom at Rockingham but they had a rope all the way around it so you could only lean over and look through the window :rolleyes: This is the second part to that vid but it's still lacking any information.
