Advice for buyers
What should I look for in a used Hyundai i30N hatchback?
Check that the brakes operate smoothly and are free from any judder under light applications. If not, the discs could be warped, and you may be left with a costly repair. 271bhp Performance versions have bigger discs than the standard 247bhp i30N.
What are the most common problems with a used Hyundai i30N hatchback?
The i30N hasn’t shown up any major concerns so far. If an issue does arise that’s not related to wear and tear, then even the earliest example will still have the majority of its manufacturer’s warranty left.
Hyundai, as a brand, also did rather well in our latest What Car? Reliability Survey, finishing in fourth place out of 30 car manufacturers. The i30N didn't feature as a standalone model, but the regular i30 family car finished second out of 24 cars in its family car class, an excellent result.
