Used Hyundai i30 Tourer 2017-present review

Used Hyundai i30 Tourer (17-present)
Review continues below...

What alternatives should I consider to a used Hyundai i30 estate?

The most obvious alternative is the Volkswagen Golf Estate, which is more enjoyable to drive and more comfortable than the i30 Tourer, and is also endowed with a classier interior. The downside, of course, is that you pay the price for all this finery because it’s costlier to buy.

The Seat Leon ST is a more palatable alternative, cost-wise. It isn’t quite as smart inside as the Golf Estate but its interior matches the Hyundai’s for quality and usability, plus it’s better to drive.

It’s worth noting, of course, that neither of the above cars comes with Hyundai’s five-year warranty. If a long warranty is what you’re after, you’ll need to look at the Toyota Auris Touring Sports, which has a five-year, 100,000-mile warrantly, or the Kia Cee'd Sportswagon, with its seven-year, 100,000-mile guarantee.
