When the Hyundai i30 was first released, it sold well due to its cheap price. The new model promises to be more accomplished than any competitors, whilst keeping a great value price.
A huge improvement has been made to the design of the car, with heavily detailed headlights, a pair of stylish LED daytime running lights and thick curves down the sides. Inside the vehicle is a top quality interior finished with soft touch plastics on the door panels and dashboard. Classy silvery inserts and gloss black details give the i30 and elegant appearance comparable to a VW Golf.
The driving performance maintains this high level. Improvements have been made to refinement, with the 1.6-litre diesel giving off a peaceful muted noise at low speeds. Despite an impressive 0-62mph time of 10.9 seconds, the power of the 126bhp 1.6 CRDi engine lacks that spark on full revs.
Another attraction to the Hyundai i30 is the manual-equipped 109bhp and 126bhp diesel engines both being exempt of road tax and congestion costs, due to CO2 emissions being only 100g/km. The economy figures are also impressive, giving an extraordinary 74.3mpg.
Overall, the Hyundai i30 seems like a fantastic offer. Without being electrifying, the vehicle provides a smooth ride, a sizeable cabin for tall passengers, sound handling and a boot built to fit your bags. All this in spite of the brand new Flex Steer system, allowing users to select from a Comfort, Dynamic or Normal option.
While the Hyundai i30 is moving up to a similar level performance of the Ford Focus and VW Golf, so is the cost. With almost virtually identical additional equipment, with sat-nav, a reversing camera and climate control, a top of the range Hyundai i30 would cost £20,295, in comparison to £20,305 for a 1.6 TDI Golf Match.
