It's the first turbocharged i30 that Hyundai has ever mass produced - just don't expect a proper hot hatch. That's going to have to wait for the N Performance version late 2016.

2015 Hyundai i30 Turbo Review : Nurburgring

Read the review. After a hectic couple of days at the recent Frankfurt Motor Show, we were given the opportunity to track test the Europe’s Hyundai i30 Turbo at the famed Nurburgring, in Germany. Before we all too excited, let’s be clear on the car’s positioning. The i30 Turbo is no hot hatch – it’s lukewarm at best...

Small Car Comparison Review : Corolla, 3, i30

In the first half of 2015, the Toyota Corolla, Hyundai i30 and Mazda 3 made up more than 10 per cent of the entire new vehicle market, which is an astonishing feat. In the sales race, it’s the Corolla that’s got its nose in front of the Mazda 3, with the i30 consistently holding down third just behind...

Mazda 3 v Toyota Corolla v Hyundai i30 : Small hatch comparison

The Toyota Corolla, Mazda 3 and Hyundai i30 cumulatively claim a bigger chunk of Australia’s new vehicle market than any other trio of rivals.

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...

2017 Hyundai i30 spied

The next-generation Hyundai i30 five-door hatchback has been spied undergoing testing in the European Alps. First spotted in August 2015, prototypes of the new i30 were last spied in February in Australia during hot weather testing. From what we can deduce through the car's protective cladding and camouflage, the new hatch seems to have a flatter, more formal side profile...

Hyundai i30 Tourer discontinued

The Hyundai i30 Tourer has been quietly discontinued from Australian sale, due primarily to the cost impediment of importing the wagon from Europe. The load-lugging Hyundai i30 derivative was launched here in February 2013 after initially being ruled out due to exchange rates. The i30 Tourer was, and is, built only in the Czech Republic, not Korea as with the i30 hatch...

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...
