Entry-level Hyundai i30 Go launches from $19,990+ORC

Hyundai Go launched at less than $20k as Hyundai attempts to cash in on i30 accolades.

THE HYUNDAI I30 has a new family member, the entry-level Go variant which lists from $19,990+ORC in manual petrol form. The i30 Go gets the same safety features as the previous entry point, the Active.

Available with either a six-speed manual or automatic in petrol trim (120kW), or a six-speed manual or seven-speed DCT in diesel form (100kW), the i30 Go seven airbags, tyre pressure monitoring system, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility, 8in touchscreen, reversing camera, LED daytime running lights, and automatic headlights.

The i30 Go doesn’t get native sat-nav, unlike the rest of the i30 range and, instead, gets a similar smartphone only set-up like the Hyundai Kona.
