2016 Hyundai i30 Active review

Read the full review here. We are the Korean carmakers biggest market in the world for this particular model, and it’s a chart topper in the passenger car sales race.

Sporty small hatch comparison : Mazda 3 v Ford Focus v Holden Cruze v Hyundai i30 v Nissan Pulsar

Almost anyone can throw on a pair of gym shorts and runners and look reasonably sporting in the checkout line at Coles, and the same is true with cars – the addition of alloy wheels, a spoiler and foglights can suddenly make your small hatchback look at least a bit athletic. As ever, though, it's the muscles beneath the clothes that counts...

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...

2012 Hyundai i30 Premium Review

Hyundai i30 is a solid car that handles very well. It has just one issue but it is major and costly. Hyundai claims via the fuel sticker city consumption of 9.7L / 100K. The reality is fuel consumption of 12.78L/100K measured over 9 months and approximately 12 refills. I have kept all records and receipts.That is 35% more than what buyers have been told...

2013 Hyundai i30 Sr Review

Coming up to 2 years of ownership, I thought I would share a small review on of my I30 SR Auto. Being my first brand new car, I have been very pleased with my purchase. It has travelled 36,000km and has not had a single hiccup while driving. Since day 1 I have only ever put BP Ultimate (I know its not recommended, but it is all I've ever used in my past vehicles) and have had it serviced every 7,500km (Just a preference I have)...

2015 Hyundai i30 Active X Review

My stock-standard Hyundai i30 ActiveX/Series II GD3, 1.8l petrol unit cost me less than $23K on-road and has proven to be a very enjoyable car to drive, both in city and country traffic. The i30 is very 'nimble' and the 1.8l motor has proven to be a very free-revving unit (I use 98 Octane/Shell V-Power) with more than adequate power in traffic and for over-taking on the freeway...
