2017 Hyundai i30 SR review

There's little doubt the small car segment is one of the most hotly contested. But what if you need something sporty, yet not outrageously expensive? The 2017 Hyundai i30 SR might be your solution.

2017 Hyundai i30 Active review

The entry-level Hyundai i30 Active offers a sharp value proposition. This car should finally erase memories of the company's past "cheap and cheerful" image.

2017 Hyundai i30 Elite review

The Hyundai i30 Elite has a point of difference in the form of a standard diesel engine. It's the comfortable and frugal Jekyll to the identically-priced i30 SR's performance-focused Hyde.

2017 Hyundai i30 SR Premium review

The 2017 Hyundai i30 SR Premium gives you 150kW of power and a load of standard features that belie its modest $34k price. It begs the question: how much hot hatch do you really need?

2017 Honda Civic VTi-LX v 2017 Hyundai i30 SR Premium comparison

When it comes to excitement, Honda's Civic has, the brand admits, been in need of a kick in the pants. This latest generation certainly shows the brand is serious. Thing is... Hyundai's not messing about, either. A challenger brand it may still be, but as our tests show, the i30 is as deserving of your dollar as any Japanese car...

Small hatch comparison

For all the hoo-ha about booming sales of SUVs, the so-called 'small car' segment remains the market's most popular, still accounting for almost 20 per cent of all new vehicles sold in Australia. Of this, the majority are hatchbacks instead of three-box sedans, which draw people in based on their improved practicality and generally less conservative design approaches...

2017 Honda Civic VTi-LX v Hyundai i30 SR Premium comparison

Two new-generation hatches, hugely important for each brand both in simple number terms and, more importantly, making a strong argument for the attentions of increasingly savvy buyers in the small-car market. One of these cars, the new 2017 Honda Civic, boasts a pedigree nearly 50 years old, with the same name and with a very well-regarded history of solid engineering...

2015 Hyundai i30 Active X Review

Fuel economy in urban areas is disappointing, and it is always more than 10 litres per 100km. However other features far outweigh the disappointment of the real world economy not matching the numbers on the windscreen decal. For comparison, our 2014 Subaru Forester 2.5, returns around 8.0-Litres per 100Kms for urban driving...

2016 Hyundai i30 Active X (sunroof) Review

The 130 is the complete package. All the technology you could ask for, great iPhone connectivity, all the instruments are clearly visible and the adjustable steering works a treat for the two drivers using the car. We were lucky to see and get the beige leather appointed interior which is a big plus after so many black interior options...

2015 Hyundai i30 Active Review

I bought my Hyundai in June 2015 and it was the best decision I made. $19,990 drive away for a new car is an irresistible deal, especially when it comes with a peace of mind of a 5 year unlimited KM warranty and capped price annual service. 1) Safety - peace of mind of 5 star ANCAP and 7 airbags, reversing camera in base model...

2008 Hyundai i30 Slx Review

This car wasn't meant for a farmer's wife, and its special features are driving me around the bend.1) It beeps incessantly if you haven't put the seatbelt on, which I don't need to do on our internal tracks. 2) It flattens the battery if you don't remove the ignition key to double lock the car, which I don't need to do and so sometimes forget...
