What's the used Hyundai i30 estate like?

A compact estate car might sound like a contradiction but, in fact, cars such as the Hyundai i30 Tourer make a huge amount of sense these days.

With larger estates having grown to gargantuan proportions, it’s been left to the i30 – and better-known rivals including the Volkswagen Golf, Skoda Octavia and Vauxhall Astra – to offer alternatives with proportions that are more manageable around town yet have a big enough boot to carry the detritus associated with young kids (not to mention the occasional flat pack).

Inside, things are better, however – and, let’s face it, the interior is what matters in an estate. The boot is impressive; not the biggest around but not far from it, and endowed with a low loading lip and easy-to-fold rear seats, even if they do leave a small step when they’re down.

Further forward, the rear seats are more cramped than those in most estates – that's is a bit of a disappointment – but they are at least comfortable. The front seats have no such space issues, though, offering plenty of head and leg room.

The dashboard, meanwhile, is rather dour, but at least it’s sensibly laid out, easy to find your way around and built robustly. In fact, it’s something of a metaphor for the i30 Tourer as a whole; solid, sensible and entirely fit for purpose, but just a bit dull.
