Ownership cost

What used Hyundai I30 FASTBACK hatchback will I get for my budget?

Around £13,000 is the starting point for an i30 in Fastback form, this for a good 2018 car with an average mileage for the year and a full history, bought from an independent dealer. Up this to around £15,000  for a 1.4 in top-spec trim, or try between £18,000 and £22,000 for a 2019 car. 

How much does it cost to run a Hyundai I30 FASTBACK hatchback?

On paper, the most economical of the two petrol choices is the 1.0-litre-engined car, with a high of 52.3mpg according to the latest WLTP figures. Expect around 48.7mpg from the larger 1.4-litre unit. 

All of the Fastback models should have been registered after the tax changes of April 2017 came into force, which means they’ll all pay a flat rate of annual car tax (VED), currently £145 a year. Insurance costs are very competitive.

Servicing and repair costs on Hyundais are generally very reasonable compared with those of most other makes. However, keep in mind that Hyundai’s discounted out-of-warranty menu service pricing scheme won’t kick in until your i30 hits five years old; for other manufacturers, it starts at three years old.
