Costs & verdict
Everyday costs, plus how reliable and safe it is
Like the rest of the Hyundai i30 range, the Fastback benefits from a five-year, unlimited-mileage warranty that few rivals can match. The ownership package includes five years of free annual ‘check-ups’ and five years of breakdown cover.
Unfortunately, despite the i30 Fastback’s engines being comparatively small, they’re not as fuel-efficient as the class best. Fuel economy and CO2 emissions for both the 1.0 turbo petrol and 1.4 turbo petrol units fall short of the figures from rivals’ equivalent units.
