The i30’s infotainment system is simple to use and fuss-free. It might not be as sophisticated as the systems you get in the latest VW Group models, but there’s something to be said for the i30’s clearly labelled switches and big, bold information display.
S versions come with a Bluetooth and DAB radio, and the system is easy to set up, and USB and auxiliary input sockets that are mounted at the base of the centre console, within easy reach. SE models then come with a 5.0in colour touchscreen which is simple to follow if not particularly visually engaging.
SE Nav models and up then get an 8.0in colour touchscreen which is much nicer to look at, just as easy to use and comes with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto as standard. The secondary steering wheel-mounted controls for various functions are straightforward.
