Hyundai Genesis wins

i30.The multiple-award winning hatch just got better

Written by Media Manager.

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.

James Duncan. Very good at horsing around....

2015-isuzu-james500xJames has been with Bowater Hyundai & Isuzu since early in 2014, having come through the industry since his first job as a vehicle groomer back in 2002. Over that time he has certainly seen technology change, and is able to point you in the right direction with matching you up with the vehicle that will best suit your needs. He has his finger on the pulse and knows how to take control of the reigns!

Born and bred in Nelson, James grew up in Wakefield and attended Waimea College. He has kept true to his country roots, having competitively ridden horses since he was 5. He now competes on a national level, often travelling to events such as the Horse of the Year with his horse and his executive horse float. Got a question about towing a horse float - James is your man! He has towed more horse floats in his time than most, and has got the full run down on towing statistics.
