Is the Hyundai i30 one of the best small cars out there?

Hyundai Australia hosts first ever N Festival

“Is this anybody’s first time on a racetrack?” Hyundai N Technician Geoff Fear asks from atop the pit wall of Wakefield Park Raceway. It’s a question I’ve only ever seen inspire sheepishness in participants of track days before, yet when a third of the crowd of 128 drivers gathered in front of Fear shoot a hand towards the sky, they do it with glee...

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.

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...

2020 Hyundai Veloster Turbo v i30 N-Line comparison

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

2021 Hyundai i30 Sedan N Line revealed and walkaround tour: video

CarAdvice was invited to get up close and personal with the new 2021 Hyundai i30 Sedan N Line – but, as this particular car is a pre-production model, there was no opportunity for a quick drive. That'll have to wait until later this year. We did, however, have the chance to investigate what's under the bonnet, in the cabin, and the cargo area, to see what this new sports sedan will be bringing to Hyundai's growing i30 range...

UPDATE, July 20: Details on the new i30 Sedan N Line's drivetrain have surfaced on a public Australian government database. There are no surprises, but it at least confirms what we can expect.

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...
