Video: 2021 Hyundai i30 Sedan N Line review

The 2021 Hyundai i30 Sedan proved that affordable small sedans don’t have to be boring, blending practicality and space with edgy styling. Now we get to spend some time with the sporty variant – the 2021 Hyundai i30 Sedan N Line.

Video: 2021 Hyundai i30 Sedan first drive review

There’s more to the strategy behind the 2021 Hyundai i30 sedan than simply a name change from the outgoing Elantra. It needs to be remembered, too, that the Elantra was a solid car in a segment that has waned a little of late, but shows signs of gaining momentum over the next few years.

Video: 2021 Hyundai i30 N 8-speed auto prototype test drive

The Hyundai i30N hot hatch has had a facelift. Behind the new nose is a more powerful engine and, for the first time, the option of an eight-speed automatic transmission.

Video: 2020 Ford Focus ST v Hyundai i30 N motorkhana comparison

Can the latest Focus hero defeat Hyundai's brilliant hot hatch? NOTE: We're aware of the '553Nm' slip. As epic as that would be, the i30 N of course offers 353Nm of torque. ...

Spec shootout: 2021 Hyundai i30 Elite sedan v Toyota Corolla SX sedan

The world of the humble small sedan has become a little more broad-ranging of late. Traditional three-box small cars have grown, and buyers have moved away from medium sedans, thus somehow creating a new, melded category. Hatch versus sedan arguments have raged for decades, but there’s no denying the neat and almost elegant lines of the saloon option, particularly as manufacturers have turned to designs that inject a level of style and intrigue into the segment...

2018 Hyundai i30 N Performance review

Moving headlong into the depths of middle age, my initial idea was to buy a sleek, phallic-nosed sports car, a later model Nissan 350Z being the main candidate. Then I saw an article about the Hyundai i30 N, a car I'd heard about but on which I didn't know much. It had won an award for best affordable sports car two years running so I figured there must be something to it...

2021 Hyundai i30 N Line Premium review

Let’s get the i30 sedan’s styling out of the way first - yes it’s polarising and the haters will say it’s already come pre-dented, but I think it’s nowhere near as hideous and unresolved as the Honda Civic hatch, which to my eyes resembles an arthritic Transformer stuck crouched in mid-transformation and unable to get up...

2010 Hyundai i30 CW SX 2.0 review

A well-thought-out vehicle. It was originally purchased to fit three child seats across the back. It has a wide body and has the same specs internally to the ix35. Used as a tow vehicle for holidays, it has towed a loaded 7x4 trailer with no problems. Don't be afraid to give it throttle and use the revs. The engine doesn't use much more fuel...

2018 Hyundai i30 SR (sunroof) review

After a four-month-long search, and basically test driving all the cars in this segment, I decided to put the money down on the i30 SR. It just ticked all the boxes for me: fun to drive, comfortable, affordable, latest tech and reliable. For the past year it has proven to be a joyous experience without any complaints, which is rare for me...
