What used Hyundai i30 hatchback will I get for my budget?
Prices start at around £9000 for an early i30 of this generation with either average or just above average miles. You’ll find prices are below those of the Volkswagen Golf and Skoda Octavia, and on a par with the Ford Focus, Seat Leon and Peugeot 308. Spend between £9000 and £11,000 on good 2017 cars, around £12,000 on 2018 and 2019 low-mileage models and around £14,000 on 2020 cars. For a 2021 car, expect to pay upwards of £15,000.

Only a handful of i30s will have been registered before the 1 April 2017 cutoff for the new tax regime. If yours is one of these cars, rejoice, because you’ll pay considerably less tax – although your bills won’t be quite as low as those from other manufacturers, due to the i30’s slightly higher emissions figures. If your car was registered after 1 April 2017, by contrast, you’ll pay a flat rate fee every year. This is currently £155 per year for petrol and diesel cars, and £145 for hybrid cars.

Servicing and repair costs on Hyundais are generally very reasonable compared with those of most other makes. However, keep in mind that Hyundai’s discounted out-of-warranty menu service pricing scheme won’t kick in until your i30 hits five years old; for other manufacturers, it starts at three years old.
