  • NEW PRICE: £13,775 - £24,830
  • USED PRICE: From £2,950

The Hyundai i30 is a medium family hatchback, competing head-to-head with established big-name models like the VW Golf and Ford Focus. It represents a real step forward for Hyundai in both quality and performance and, along with its stable-mate, the Kia Cee'd, it has helped Korea step into the premier league of world motorcar manufacture.

Latest models: Hyundai i30 (2012-) & Hyundai i30 Tourer (2012-)

Pros and cons

  • Pro: Value for money, low running costs and reasonable performance
  • Con: Cabin doesn't have a premium feel and the diesel engine can be noisy

New Hyundai i30 reviews

The Hyundai i30 gives mainstream and established competitors something to think about. Ride and handling are on a par with class-leaders like the Ford Focus and VW Golf, although it can't quite match them for driving enjoyment. And while it doesn't quite win for boot space, driver and passengers should find the i30 roomier than rivals.

  • Hyundai i30 (2012-)

    2015 Hyundai i30 1

    New price: £14,595 - £23,730

    Is the new Hyundai i30 good enough to take on the Focus?
  • Hyundai i30 (2007-2012)

    Hyundai i30 1 2008

    New price: £13,775 - £19,075

    The Hyundai i30 is a big step on from the company's previous family hatchbacks. It's a sister model to the Kia Cee'd, but does Hyundai have the edge?
  • Hyundai i30 Tourer (2012-)

    Hyundai i30 Tourer 1

    New price: £16,885 - £24,830

    Hyundai's latest estate model based on the i30 hatchback. It's reasonably priced and is offered with a five-year warranty.
  • Hyundai i30 estate (2007-2012)

    Hyundai i30 11

    New price: £15,105 - £19,075

    The Hyundai i30 estate marks a step up in practicality compared to the i30 hatchback. But how good it as an estate car?

Used Hyundai i30 reviews

If you're interested in buying a used Hyundai i30, you'll be pleased to hear that steep depreciation (loss of value) means it's cheaper than a comparable Toyota Auris or Honda Civic. The other positive note is that many secondhand examples will still be covered by what remains of Hyundai's five-year warranty.
