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. ...

Video review: 2020 Hyundai i30 Elite

Today, we’re drilling down on what we think is the pick of the bunch – the 2020 Hyundai i30 Elite. Priced from $28,040 before on-roads, it sits squarely in the middle of the six-variant range. For context, the next-step-up models are the Premium and the N Line pair.

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...

2020 Ford Focus ST v Hyundai i30 N comparison review

The 2020 Ford Focus ST carries a burden that wasn’t anticipated for its place in the hot-hatch world. Ford’s decision earlier this year to axe development of a next-generation RS model means the ST must now serve as the fastest Focus to challenge a gamut of rivals. It’s not bringing a knife to a gunfight, though. Ford has installed the last RS’s 2...

So, the Hyundai Veloster Turbo is an i30 N-Line in pricey fancy dress? We presumed so... And we were wrong.

Cheap speed: The cars with the most power per dollar

In our era of turbocharging and electrification, it can seem almost weekly that a new, immensely powerful, absurdly expensive hypercar or super-sedan makes its debut. The Bugatti Bolide, SSC Tuatara, Mercedes-AMG GT Black Series and heavyweight GMC Hummer EV encompass some of the more recent additions to the high-horsepower club...

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...

2017 Hyundai i30 SR review

Back in 1999, my first brand new car purchase during my university days was a 3-door Hyundai Excel ‘Sport’. Even with much ridicule from friends about buying a Korean ‘girls car’, the purchase was solid...

2015 Hyundai i30 Active X Review

I have owned my manual 2015 Hyundai i30 hatch petrol for about two years and ten months (as I write this review), having purchased this car because I needed to upgrade from my 1999 Toyota Corolla (due to higher servicing costs as the vehicle aged). I am very happy with my Hyundai so far. I use my car as an everyday car for my everyday needs, such as driving to work, shops, gym, visiting family and friends, etc...
