Hyundai to strengthen Euro styling focus

Granted, CarAdvice was in Frankfurt at Hyundai’s European Design HQ, but regardless, there’s was a very strong European focus about everything to do with the all-new i30 at the world preview. ‘A car designed and engineered in Europe for the most discerning European buyers’ was a sentiment that came up more than once...

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. It seems us Aussies can’t get enough of the Hyundai i30.

2018 Hyundai i30 N teased in new video

The Hyundai i30 N, the brand's first Golf GTI rival, has been teased in a new video released online. With commentary by Thierry Neuville, one of Hyundai Motorsports' WRC drivers, we can see a prototype of the i30 N sliding around an icy test track during extreme cold weather testing in Arjeplog, Sweden...

Hyundai i30 'Fastback' spied - UPDATE

The Hyundai i30 Fastback four-door derivation is deep into development, with European spy photographers capturing the car, in disguise, for the first time. Looking conceptually something like a cut-price Audi A5 Sportback, or smaller Kia Stinger/Skoda Superb, the ‘four-door coupe’ version of the i30 is clearly an attempt to woo younger buyers to the brand’s volume staple, in lieu of the axed three-door option...

2017 Hyundai i30 Wagon revealed for Geneva

The all-new 2017 Hyundai i30 Wagon has been revealed today, ahead of its world premiere at next month's Geneva motor show. Before the wagon fiends among you get excited, there's something you need to know: this one won't be coming to Australia. At least, it's not in the current plan...

2017 Hyundai i30 wagon teased

The next-generation Hyundai i30 wagon has been teased ahead of its debut at the Geneva motor show, which takes place in early March. At the front we expect the i30 wagon to be a mirror image of the hatch that will go on sale in Australia in April. All of the changes seemingly take place aft of the C-pillar, with the lengthened rear overhang resulting in a longer roof, thinner D-pillars, a different set of tail-lights, and a new tailgate...

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...
