Seeing as the i30 isn't and probably won't be sold in the US, it probably doesn't matter. If it is sold there it will have a different name - the 'i' cars are for the European market, the US gets ones with names. For example, the cars you get as the Sonata and Tucson we get as the i45 and ix35 respectively.Gimme a 6 speed and a turbo four and I'm all set! Btw I'm surprised Nissan isn't throwing a fit that Hyundai is using the name of the Infiniti I30. Or maybe that model wasn't important enough to warrant caring about.
