Space & practicality

How it copes with people and clutter

If you’re tall and a hot hatch fan, you’ll fit in the front of i30N without any issue, thanks to plenty of head and leg room.

All models come with five doors, so getting in and out of the back is made easier, but there’s not a vast amount of space inside. Head room isn’t the problem; it’s the leg room. It’s much tighter than the back seats of a Honda Civic Type R or Volkswagen Golf GTI, although still better than the Ford Focus RS.

The boot isn’t as big as the Civic Type R's or Golf GTI’s, either. That said, there’s enough space for a couple of large suitcases without resorting to dropping the standard 60/40 split-folding rear seats. But when you do, be aware that the Performance model comes with a rear suspension strut brace running sideways across the floor; you’ll need to remove this to achieve a flat extended load area.
