An all-new Hyundai i30 is due in 2012 – but the current i30 estate’s combination of practicality and discounted prices make it an appealing buy right now.
Sharp new Hyundai i30
As we revealed back in August, the all-new Hyundai i30 will hit UK showrooms in early 2012. It looks sharp and feels more upmarket than the existing car.
But it will initially be available in five-door hatchback form only – an estate bodystyle isn’t likely to hit showrooms until much later in the year.
There’s very little wrong with existing i30 estate, as we discovered when it went through our test labs. It’s well-equipped, spacious and surprisingly good to drive. Owners have also rated it highly in our latest 2011 Which? Car Survey.

The best news of all is that, with the wraps having come off the new i30, there are some spectacular discounts to be had on the outgoing model. We asked two established car brokers for their best prices on the i30 estate and found that discounts of between 20% and 23% are currently available, depending on model.
Considering the list prices of the i30 range are already low by class standards, this is real bargain territory. In fact, it’s possible to buy a brand new i30 estate for less than £12,500.
