Introducing the Hyundai i30

The Hyundai i30 is a well-proportioned, good-looking family hatchback that is more than a match for its rivals in this hotly contested segment. Where it stands out is with its standard equipment - there's an incredible amount of features included with every version of the i30, especially the higher models in the range.

Entering its third generation, the latest i30 has undergone a full makeover that extends beyond the sharp-looking appearance. Under the skin there is a raft of new technologies that have all been engineered to maximise safety and enhance driver convenience.

A good choice of engines are available for good measure, all of which offer inexpensive running costs and usable everyday performance. Add it all up and you've got a great value family car that comes with Hyundai's excellent five year warranty.

Design and Practicality

Hyundai i30 Side Profile

The i30 is guaranteed to capture the attention of your friends and family, what with the assertive lights and grille complementing the contoured body lines.

Things get a bit spicier when you opt for the 'N Line' model, which brings 18-inch alloy wheels as well as exclusive badging and exterior features. Inside is a spacious affair, with plenty of leg and head room available for taller passengers in the back.

The boot is a very competitive size for this class of car, with 395 litres available when the rear seats are folded up. If you need the extra space for odd jobs like tip runs, then they can be folded flat to create 1,301 litres.

It's worth noting that i30 is also available as a Fastback or Estate, so it all boils down to your preference.

Technology and Safety

Hyundai i30 Interior

Hyundai have been pretty generous with the i30, with a number of desirable features available on each model. Entry-level models get a 3.8-inch monochrome screen that displays radio and music information, while SE models and above get an 8-inch colour touchscreen that comes with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay.

Keeping your cool has never been easier thanks to the manual air-conditioning that comes standard, although higher spec models do come with dual-zone climate control. Bluetooth is a must-have in today's age, while the addition of a wireless charging pad is a very welcome one.

Safety feature highlights:

  • Autonomous Emergency Braking
  • Forward Collision Warning System
  • Blind Spot Detection
  • Lane Keeping Assist System
  • Electronic Stability Programme (ESP)


Economy and Performance

Hyundai i30 Driving

There are three engines to choose from, which consist of two petrol units and a sole diesel.

A 1.0-litre turbocharged petrol engine may not sound enough to move a mid-sized hatchback; but with 118 bhp and 126 ft/lbs on tap, it's surprisingly punchy. Expect 51 mpg on a combined cycle from this motor.

The larger 1.4-litre turbocharged petrol produces 138 bhp and 178 ft/lbs, which translates to effortless acceleration and easy overtaking on the motorway. Available with a 7-speed automatic gearbox, you can expect as high as 46.3 mpg on a combined cycle.

With low emissions and the ability to comfortably return close to 66 mpg (combined), the 1.6-litre diesel engine is ideal for motorway dwellers. The same seven-speed auto is available if you want seamless gear changes and optimised economy.
