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: 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...

Small cars are affordable – but which top seller is truly the cheapest?

Small hatchbacks and sedans are still popular. As a category, they sit in fifth place overall – underneath the ever-growing small, medium and large SUV classes, and the dual-cab ute segment. Being fifth means over 10,000 Australian private buyers and businesses take delivery of a small car each month...

The safest cars for young drivers under $30,000 in Australia

Buying a new car is an exciting yet arduous process – more so when it's your first time jumping through the hoops. While key factors such as style, performance and price are usually top of mind, given that novice drivers are over-represented in fatal crashes – due to a combination of inexperience and older, cheaper and less safe cars – safety should also make the list of priorities...

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

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...
