Hyundai Australia is showcasing in Sydney the i30 SR concept that has the 2.0-liter gasoline engine of the i40 model.

Aside from introducing the Accent SR in Sydney, Hyundai’s Australian division has also brought the i30 SR concept based on the Elite version. This is a near-production concept that will be launched next year as a more powerful variant of the hatchback.

It will borrow the 2.0-liter gasoline engine found under the hood of the bigger i40 model. This power unit generates 174 hp (130 kW) and a peak torque of 157 lb-ft (213 Nm), which is a significant improvement compared to the i30’s standard 1.8-liter engine that develops 147 hp (110 kW) and 131 lb-ft (178 Nm).

Aside from the different engine, the Hyundai i30 SR comes with a bespoke black sports grille, 17-inch alloys, LED DRLs, a rear diffuser and partial leather/leatherette upholstery that has red inserts.
