Hyundai debuts its second gen of the i30 hatchback at the 64th International Auto Show in Frankfurt, which targets the popular Euro C-segment among which rivals are the Opel/Vauxhall Astra, VW Golf and Citroen C4.

This compact car model will be on sale next spring with an option of 1.4-litre and 1.6-litre engines in both gasoline and diesel.

The Hyundai booth also showcases the rest of the South Korean automaker's range including the new mid-size i40 sedan and station wagon models, and the Veloster sport hatch.

Hyundai's Veloster on show is a special edition featuring a matte gunmetal paint job with barcode-like graphics reading "2011091325" and carbon fiber trim on the front grille and spoilers, rear diffuser, mirror caps and side protection strips.
