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...

2012 Hyundai i30 Elite Review

I have owned this car for 2.5 years and have covered a modest 32,000 kms. I must say that these 2.5 years have been excellent and trouble free. This is the the only car I have ever owned (amongst Japanese, Australian and Euro cars) that I have never had to raise any issues at service time for warranty or ever needed anything looked at, adjusted etc...

2013 Hyundai i30 Diesel Review

This car is definitely worth the look, if you are shopping around for a new vehicle. It is cost efficient, sleek, and comes with a few bells and whistles, as well as being comfortable and easy to handle with a few minor bugs. The 1.6 L Diesel will get you roughly 800 km to a tank of fuel with combined free way and city driving...

2009 Hyundai i30 Sx 1.6 CRDi Review

Just bought this car this week for only $7000 - amazing. Only 45k, brand new tyres, just serviced, couple of little marks externally and some stains internally which am still trying to remove, but overall looks and drives fantastic. The power of the car is unbelievable and the economy just leaves you speechless. Drove from gympie to brisbane and the fuel gauge didnt even move...

2010 Hyundai i30 Slx Review

I’m writing about my experience of owning a 2010 Hyundai i30 Hatch. After much research being done, the car was chosen as it had won multiple awards such as Car of the Year. After test driving the i30 we finally made a decision to purchase the 2.0 Automatic SLX (mid-range luxury model) which came with features such as auto climate control, fog lights and cruise control...

2015 Hyundai i30 Series II Review : local launch

Read the review. Australians buy more Hyundai i30s than any other nation on Earth – so the updated 2015 Hyundai i30 Series II is kind of a big deal. The i30 is the company’s biggest selling model – Hyundai sold 31,505 examples in 2014, and has already sold 6316 to the end of March 2015. Indeed, it’s the country’s third-best selling small car behind the Toyota Corolla and Mazda 3...

2015 Hyundai i30 Tourer Series II pricing and specifications

The Hyundai i30 Tourer Series II launches this week, bringing a range of mid-life updates to the popular small-sized wagon.

Hyundai i30 Turbo ruled out for Australia  

There will be no Hyundai i30 Turbo sold in Australia. The newly developed Hyundai i30 Turbo debuted at the 2015 Geneva motor show with a punchy 1.6-litre turbocharged petrol four-cylinder engine producing 137kW/265Nm and six-speed manual transmission. Such a model would have given Hyundai Australia a more sporting option than the current SR variant, which is powered by a 2...

2015 Hyundai i30 Series II pricing and specifications

The new-look 2015 Hyundai i30 Series II brings a major range restructure that will likely make the South Korean brand’s small hatchback more enticing to new car buyers. The Hyundai i30 line-up now kicks off with the Active base model, while a new Active X variant builds upon that specification with some extra niceties, and is tipped to take the majority of sales - 50 per cent, by Hyundai's estimates...
