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.

Meet the Bowater Hyundai Team

Daryl Pritchard. A depth of experience & the voice of reason.

Daryl has been in the car industry for a long time, ever since he started as an apprentice mechanic for the Post Office's Workshop in Wellington, where he grew up.

We are fortunate to have him, and all of his varied vehicle industry experience, with us at Bowater Hyundai since 2010. He has seen the Hyundai brand go from strength to strength and has a depth of technical knowledge of the evolution of the range of vehicles. 

Daryl lives in Stoke with his wife, they have four grown children living as far afield as Wellington and Sydney. A proud supporter of the Hurricanes and the Lions, Daryl maintains his strong connection to the city he grew up in.

He is a strong believer in the Bowater Motor Group philosophy of giving back to the community and thrives on "the strong focus of ethical business within the company". As such Daryl is a strong advocate for the special relationships that Bowater Hyundai has built with community partners such as Big Brothers Big Sisters and Victory Boxing.

Daryl is an enthusiastic fisherman and says his lack of results has failed to deter him from his enthusiasm. Click here to contact Daryl.
