Alternatives

What alternatives should I consider to a used Hyundai i30 hatchback?

The obvious alternative is the Seat Leon, whose excellent blend of value, equipment, build quality, space and driving excitement make it a compelling used buy. Or if you fancy something that’s even more spacious, you could choose the Leon’s more expensive sibling, the Skoda Octavia.

If you’ve got a bit more cash to splash, there’s always the Volkswagen Golf, which is about the same size as the i30 but is classier inside, more efficient and better to drive. Alternatively, if reliability is key, the 2017-onward Honda Civic is worth a look.

Overview

Sharp looks and the residue of a five-year warranty make the i30 an appealing used family car

  • Long warranty
  • Low prices
  • Useful boot
  • Sluggish performance
  • Bland to drive
  • Tight rear seat space
