HYUNDAI is launching an out-out offensive with the new i30 to be launched late this month priced from $20,950.

That's a reduction of $500 on the outgoing base model, but when the new Hyundai i30 arrives it will come standard with equipment which will have the tech-savvy salivating - including and integrated satnav system with eight-inch touch screen, as well as Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility and digital radio.

Automatic versions of the base Active will start from $23,250.

Key competition still comes from sister company Kia with its Cerato ($19,990 drive-away), as well as the Mazda3 Neo ($20,490), Toyota Corolla Ascent ($20,190) and the Volkswagen Golf 92TSI ($22,840).

Early drives of overseas left-hand drive offerings have lauded the new i30 for its dexterity.

The new 2.0-litre petrol engine develops 13kW more power and 28Nm more torque than the 1.8-litre MPi engine it replaces.

Other additions to the new i30 Active specification over the outgoing GD Active include 16-inch alloy wheels, LED daytime running lights, automatic headlights, hill-start assist and a tyre pressure monitoring system.
