What alternatives should I consider to a used Hyundai i30 hatchback?
If the huge warranty is the Hyundai i30’s main attraction for you, there are two other cars that might catch your eye.
First up is the Kia Cee’d, which is based around the same underpinnings as the i30 and has a seven-year warranty, albeit limited to 100,000 miles in the latter four years. There’s also the Toyota Auris, which is rather average to drive, but comes with a five-year, 100,000-mile warranty.
However, if the idea of having a big chunk of manufacturer’s warranty left over doesn’t matter as much to you, there are other options out there. The Volkswagen Golf is one of our current favourites, for example – although it’s pricier than the i30, you get a higher-quality interior and a more enjoyable drive.
