How it copes with people and clutter

Front space

Up front, the i30 is just as roomy as the majority of its rivals; you’d have to be unbelievably towering to feel hemmed in for height or struggle for leg room.

There’s also enough storage, including a fair-sized glovebox, its medium-sized door bins, a lidded cubby under the centre armrest and a couple of cupholders.

Boot space

The i30's boot has a reasonably low loading lip and a 395-litre capacity. That’s plenty for the average family shopping trip or a buggy, and, on paper, a little more than the Leon and Golf offer. It’s no match for the class giant, though: the Skoda Octavia has 600 litres of luggage space.

Still, the i30's boot is impressively deep and square, with decent access as well. It's just a pity there's no height-adjustable boot floor, because this means you end up with a step in the floor when the rear seats are folded flat.
