Goodbye Elantra, hello i30 Sedan.

The 2021 Hyundai i30 Sedan is ready to partner the hatchback and tackle the Toyota Corolla on the sales charts, offering a choice of two engines and four trim levels and prices close to the older hatchback model.

Prices start at $24,790 before on-road costs for the Active manual, topping out at $37,290 before on-roads for the N-Line Premium auto.

The i30 Sedan range structure mostly mirrors that of the i30 Hatch, though the hatchback offers a trim level below the i30 Sedan’s entry-level Active grade.

Prices range between $130 less to $1070 more when compared to the equivalent hatch.

As with the i30 Hatch, an independent rear suspension is standard on the N Line and N Line Premium models while the rest of the range makes do with a torsion-beam rear axle.

N Line models also add 305mm ventilated front brake rotors, 25mm larger than those in the Active and Elite.

In contrast with the i30 Hatch, the i30 Sedan offers blind-spot monitoring, safe-exit alert and rear cross-traffic alert in the N Line manual.

Automatic Elite, N Line and N Line Premium models upgrade to blind-spot and rear cross-traffic collision avoidance assist, which will apply the brakes if you continue to head towards the path of another vehicle after the system warns you.

The Elite, N Line and N Line Premium also have a parking collision avoidance assist system that applies the brakes if you’re reversing and it detects an obstacle.

The i30 Sedan defies small car segment conventions by being more visually daring than its hatchback counterpart, in stark contrast to the Mazda 3 and Toyota Corolla hatch and sedan.

The replacement for the Elantra – which will still be called Elantra in other markets – is no hatchback with a box on the back, wearing more exciting styling inside and out than its five-door counterpart.
