In-Car infotainment up to the minute…

Hyundai’s new i30 offers both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity as well as native sat-nav across the range. Indeed, the i30’s screen also offers the ability to split the screen, offering nav on one side and multimedia information on the other.

There’s a voice activation button on the steering wheel that gives direct access to either Siri or Android Auto voice control and allows drivers to make calls, send and receive messages (which will be read out) and get directions via Google or Apple Maps, which will be displayed on the screen.

I believe that all active AND manual transmission variants miss out on face level rear air vents.
Active due to spec level, manual transmission variants due to mechanical handbrake utilising the space required for said vents. SR auto variants will have rear vents.
