Alternatives

What alternatives should I consider to a used Hyundai I30 FASTBACK hatchback?

The Mazda 3 saloon sits in line with its hatchback sibling rather as the i30 Fastback does with its hatch version. It’s larger and more spacious, although it goes by the unpretentious name of saloon. The previous generation Mazda 3 did similar, too, and it called its alternative to the 3 hatch the 3 Fastback. They were all good to drive, even if the engines could sometimes feel a little wheezy. Used prices are strong. 

The Mercedes A-Class saloon takes the hatchback and, guess what, turns it into a four-door saloon. Its interesting profile hides a slight decrease in rear head room, but presumably owners would be happy to put up with this for the increase in style. Used examples are pricey.

The Fastback version of the i30 trades a little practicality for a slightly sharper drive

  • Neat interior
  • Well equipped
  • The residue of that handsome warranty
  • Less practical than the hatchback
  • Rear view a bit constricted
  • Too much road noise
