Trophy special edition for Hyundai i30 as Kia proffers limited-run Cerato Extra

9 Apr 2012

SOUTH KOREAN small cars are temporarily providing even better value as Hyundai reprises the Trophy special edition of its i30 small hatch and in-house rival Kia introduces an Extra limited edition of its Cerato.

Based on the 2.0-litre petrol-powered SX five-door hatch, the Trophy – recycling a special edition nameplate originally used by Hyundai in 2010 – gets cosmetic tweaks comprising titanium-look 16-inch alloy wheels, rear spoiler and front fog lights.

Inside, comfort is increased by the addition of cruise control, leather-trimmed gearshifter and leather-wrapped multi-function steering wheel.

The Trophy is priced $1100 higher than the SX at $21,690 plus on-road costs for the manual and $23,690 for the automatic. It is available only in Ceramic White, Tropic Red, Santorini Blue and Hyper Silver paint finishes, with the metallic and mica options costing $375 extra.

As with the SX, the Trophy has a five-star ANCAP crash safety rating and comes with six airbags, anti-whiplash front head restraints, electronic stability control and anti-lock brakes with electronic brakeforce distribution.

Standard equipment includes air-conditioning, keyless entry, alarm, electric windows, electric mirrors, Bluetooth audio streaming, USB and auxiliary audio inputs, a chilled glovebox and five-year unlimited kilometre warranty.

A second-generation i30 is expected to go on sale in the third quarter this year.

The Kia Cerato Extra fits between the mid-range 2.0-litre Si and flagship SLi, and is available is either hatch and sedan body styles at $21,490 for the manual and $23,490 for the automatic, representing a premium of $1250 over the sedan or $1500 over the hatchback.

Extra equipment includes Bluetooth, cruise control, rear parking sensors, 17-inch alloy wheels with full-size spare, front fog lights, leather-trimmed steering wheel with audio controls and tilt/telescopic adjustment, and chrome exhaust tips.

Five paint finishes are offered, comprising Clear White, Ebony Black, Bright Silver, Titanium Silver and Racing Red, the latter being available on the hatch only.

Like the i30, the Cerato is up for replacement but the next-generation model is not likely to surface until next year.
