Hyundai i30 Comparisons

2021 Skoda Scala Monte Carlo v 2021 Hyundai i30 Elite hatch

The Scala is Skoda’s biggest play in the small-car segment yet. But how does it stack up against one of Australia’s most popular models?

2021 Hyundai i30 Sedan N Line Premium v 2021 Mazda 3 G25 GT Sedan comparison

Still fancy a sedan? Here are two of the best going head-to-head.

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...

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.

2020 Hyundai i30 N Line Premium v Peugeot 308 GT

For keen drivers who want a full-sized small car but can’t stretch to a full-tilt hot hatch, Hyundai and Peugeot offer ‘warm’ hatches for less than $40,000. We find out whether the i30 N Line Premium or 308 GT is the pick.

2020 Honda Civic Type R v Hyundai i30 Fastback N comparison

The Hyundai i30 Fastback N is a striking proposition. While the hatch lines up squarely against a raft of familiar hot hatch luminaries such as the Golf GTI and Megane RS, its longer and slinkier sibling is harder to pigeonhole. We’ve already pitched it against a fellow outsider in the form of Skoda’s criminally under-appreciated Octavia RS...

2019 Hyundai i30 Elite v Mazda 3 G20 Evolve v Toyota Corolla SX comparison

A showdown between Australia's three most popular small cars, each tested in mid-range form, priced at about $31K on the road.

2019 Hyundai i30 Fastback N v Skoda Octavia RS Sedan comparison

Hot hatches that are not hatches? Well, not quite – let's call a spade a spade here. The Hyundai i30 Fastback N and Skoda Octavia RS Sedan are, despite their official names, both hatchbacks. More obviously, though, both comfortably fit the definition of ‘hot’ more readily...

Best small car: Ford Focus v Holden Astra v Honda Civic v Hyundai i30 v Kia Cerato v Mazda 3 v Peugeot 308 v Subaru Impreza v Toyota Corolla v Volkswagen Golf

While buyers continue to gravitate toward SUVs, small cars haven’t entirely lost their appeal. They account for about one-in-seven new vehicles sold this year, with this cluster of models forming the vast majority of the segment’s sales. We’re testing flagship variants here, with sticker prices between $30,000 and $40,000...

2019 Ford Focus ST-Line v Hyundai i30 N Line Premium v Kia Cerato GT comparison

Not everyone wants a full-on ‘hot’ hatch. Some people just want something with a bit of poke, contemporary tech and a reasonable price tag packaged into the right body style. It’s actually quite a cluttered segment, full of viable options. We’ve assembled three of the newest here, with a goal of finding the car that balances the key attributes of performance, handling, comfort, tech and value best...
