Review

The Hyundai i30 is comfortable and worth looking at if you can secure a really good deal. Otherwise, it's a bit pricey for what you get: a car that feels average in quite a few areas, most notably space and safety. Newer models, like the Seat Leon, are much better to drive, too.

Premium trim adds extra luxuries such as keyless entry, heated front seats, a heated steering wheel, a 10.3in infotainment system, sat-nav, privacy glass and climate control. 

This is a special-order only, and we haven't tried the latest mild hybrid version with 134bhp but it will hit 0-62mph in 10.2sec.
