Costs & verdict
Everyday costs, plus how reliable and safe it is
The Hyundai looks like good value for money, whether you compare it against rivals such as the Ford Focus ST, Honda Civic Type R, Renault Megane RS, Volkswagen Golf GTI or Circuit Pack version of the Toyota GR Yaris. That said, if you are buying outright, it’s worth noting that the i30N is predicted to depreciate at a quicker rate than all of those rivals.
Every i30N comes very well equipped. You get 19in alloy wheels, LED headlights, automatic lights and wipers, adaptive cruise control, front and rear parking sensors and a rear-view camera, as well as electric front seats with driver’s seat height adjustment and memory recall.
