Costs & verdict
Everyday costs, plus how reliable and safe it is
The Hyundai i30 Fastback is quite a lot cheaper than premium five-door coupés such as the BMW 2 Series Gran Coupé and the Mercedes CLA. The news isn’t quite so good when you look at depreciation though – both those rivals will retain considerably more of their value over three years.
Despite the i30 Fastback's mild-hybrid engine technology (which can improve efficiency and performance), the official figures suggest that it’ll manage 44.8mpg, which is disappointing when you consider that the 2 Series Gran Coupé should return almost 50mpg. The Fastback’s CO2 emissions are higher too, although it won’t break the bank if you’re a company car driver aiming to keep your benefit-in-kind payments low.
