Passenger & boot space

How it copes with people and clutter

Even tall hot hatch fans should have no trouble getting comfortable in the front of the i30N, thanks to plenty of head and leg room.

Despite there being five doors to make getting in and out of the back easy, though, there isn't a vast amount of space inside for rear seat passengers; head room isn’t a problem, but knee room is much tighter than in a Honda Civic Type R or Volkswagen Golf GTI.

The boot isn’t as big as the Type R's or GTI’s, either, but there’s enough space for a couple of large suitcases without resorting to dropping the standard 60/40 split-folding rear seats. Be aware that there’s a step in the floor when you do, and in the Performance model, there’s a rear suspension strut brace that runs widthways across the floor, which also gets in the way.

If you do need a bit more space, the Fastback has a larger boot thanks to its longer tail.
