What's the used Hyundai i30 hatchback like?

While the Hyundai i30 is not class leading in any particular area, it still ranks as a highly capable small family car overall.

There's decent space for five, with a surprisingly large amount of rear legroom. The boot isn't as generous, but it's a good shape and easy to load. The seats are supportive and comfortable, but taller drivers might be frustrated by the limited seat adjustment.

The i30 has good grip through corners and provides a comfortable ride. The steering is a little numb, though. Wind noise isn't a problem, but road noise is noticeable and the car thuds over poor quality roads.

One of the Hyundai's limitations is its bland styling, both inside and out. However, the cabin does feel durable and solid, with a logical layout.

There's a good selection of safety kit as standard, including a minimum of six airbags and stability control.
