But now,there is the least chance for such scenario to happen! The price range of the Hyundai i30 is a bit too high, and this price range includes some excellent sedans as well as hatchbacks. So the makers got a clear indication the competition will be too high, and it is actually difficult for Hyundai i30 to make its way here!
