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 Ford Focus ST or Honda Civic Type R. It is far more accommodating than the Toyota GR Yaris, though, which doesn’t have any rear doors and is very limited in terms of rear head room due to its sloping roof.
