Review

The Hyundai i30 is worth considering if you value practicality and ease of ownership above driving enjoyment or the lowest running costs. The i30 is pretty comfy over bumps and its engines are refined, but rivals such as the Ford Focus add extra driver appeal to the mix.

Trim: Premium SE

Range-topping Premium SE trim rounds things off with a panoramic sunroof, real leather seats and a heated steering wheel. We’d stick to the cheaper SE Nav trim.

Engine: 1.4T GDI

This turbocharged 1.4 is officially quicker than the 1.0, but often doesn’t feel it, and it uses more fuel in the process. We’d go for the 1.0T and save money buying and running that instead.
