Hyundai i30 SR long-term review, report two: infotainment

As you'll soon learn, the Hyundai i30 SR has a well laid out, logical interior. That same user-friendliness extends to the infotainment system, which is shared with the wider i30 range. Central to the system is a freestanding 8.0-inch touchscreen mounted high on the dashboard...

2018 Hyundai i30 SR long-term review, report one: introduction

Just before the Christmas break we added a new long-termer to the CarAdvice Melbourne garage: the Hyundai i30 SR. It's been a well-regarded offering since its launch early in 2017, so we decided we'd get a feel for what it's like living with the current sporting flagship of the Hyundai range – at least for now, until the all-out i30 N arrives in a couple months time...

Driving a WRC race car through Sydney

As far as road-testing and reviewing cars for a living, there are often some very interesting days behind the wheel of supercars on famed racetracks around the world, but then there are some truly unique days. Such as a particular day in November this year, when CarAdvice had the opportunity to get (with a great deal of effort) behind the wheel of a World Rally Championship (WRC) race car for a whole day...

2018 Hyundai i30 N review: Australian track test - first look

Alborz Fallah joins Hyundai at Rally Australia for a first local track drive in the hot new i30 N. Will it be worth the spend? Signs are good... but just tell us the price, already!

2018 Hyundai i30 N review: Global launch drive

Read the full review here. If you haven’t already heard about the Hyundai i30 N, don’t worry, you will, soon enough. It’s the first ever attempt at a proper Euro-rivalling hot-hatch from the powerhouse South Korean carmaker, and we’re in Italy to drive the final production version. Catch Tony's impressions above, and hit the link for the full review and gallery...

2017 Honda Civic VTi-LX v 2017 Hyundai i30 SR Premium comparison

When it comes to excitement, Honda's Civic has, the brand admits, been in need of a kick in the pants. This latest generation certainly shows the brand is serious. Thing is... Hyundai's not messing about, either. A challenger brand it may still be, but as our tests show, the i30 is as deserving of your dollar as any Japanese car...

Small hatch comparison

For all the hoo-ha about booming sales of SUVs, the so-called 'small car' segment remains the market's most popular, still accounting for almost 20 per cent of all new vehicles sold in Australia. Of this, the majority are hatchbacks instead of three-box sedans, which draw people in based on their improved practicality and generally less conservative design approaches...

2017 Honda Civic VTi-LX v Hyundai i30 SR Premium comparison

Two new-generation hatches, hugely important for each brand both in simple number terms and, more importantly, making a strong argument for the attentions of increasingly savvy buyers in the small-car market. One of these cars, the new 2017 Honda Civic, boasts a pedigree nearly 50 years old, with the same name and with a very well-regarded history of solid engineering...

2017 Hyundai i30 range review

The Hyundai i30 small hatchback is one of Australia's highest-selling vehicles, making the brand-new third-generation version launched in April a highly significant car. Put mildly, this rival to the Toyota Corolla and Mazda 3 – chief among a plethora of small car offerings in the market – is a prime candidate for a full range review...

2017 Hyundai i30 SR Premium review

Let me just start this owner’s review with the disclaimer that value and practicality have, throughout the course of my life, made their way to the top of my priority list. When the time came to hand over my VW Up, I was adding performance to the list for the first time...

2014 Hyundai i30 SR review

I purchased my Hyundai i30 SR in 2014, having compared it against a number of other cars in the warm-hatch class. I made my purchasing decision based (in no particular order) on features, performance, ride, value for money, reliability and time for delivery. Almost two and a half years on, I can say that I am happy with my purchase...

2017 Hyundai i30 Premium 1.6 CRDi review

It’s not every day we get to buy a new car. And your first-ever brand-new car is important, not just because you’ve made that massive decision to buy a new car, but it has to be the right one. It makes a statement: of all the cars I could have picked, I chose this one. I bought my very first new car just last Friday...

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...
