Alternatives

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.

Overview

When practicality, ease of ownership and cheap running costs matter, the Hyundai i30 makes a great used buy

  • Spacious, well-built cabin
  • Plenty of standard equipment
  • Balance of five-year warranty
  • Not much fun to drive
  • Inefficient petrol engines
  • Too much road noise
