Independent crash safety watchdog ANCAP has defended giving all Australian variants of the new Hyundai i30 the maximum five-star score despite some discrepancies, including the fact no NCAP body has actually crashed the vehicle...

Honda Civic, Hyundai i30 score five-star ANCAP safety ratings

The Honda Civic and Hyundai i30 have been awarded five-star safety ratings by independent crash-testing firm ANCAP.

Official pricing and final details for the incoming 2017 Hyundai i30 range have been handed down today, after initial specifications were confirmed in February.

Hyundai i30 N enters final testing, November Australian launch likely

Hyundai’s imminent i30 N hot hatch has entered a new stage of final testing ahead of its global rollout late this year, including an expected Australian launch in November. The Korean company entered its first proper hot hatch - a rival for the Golf GTI, Civic Type R and Focus ST/RS - in the VLN endurance race at the Nürburgring Nordschleife in Germany, last weekend...

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...

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...

Hyundai i30 pricing could increase to chase richer product mix

Hyundai Australia is expected to announce pricing for the next-generation i30 shortly and prices are expected to go up as the company chases a richer product mix. Speaking to media at the 2017 Hyundai i30 launch in Korea, Hyundai chief operating officer, Scott Grant, suggested Hyundai would seek to recover the cost of added value in i30 pricing...

2017 Hyundai i30 expected to achieve five star safety rating

While vehicle safety is important across all segments, it's arguably family vehicles that require the closest attention to detail, which is why Hyundai is still making a call on final safety specifications for the all-new Hyundai i30. With the vehicle due to go on sale locally in April, Hyundai is yet to lock in a standard specification for the range, which means AEB may not be available on entry level models...
