The 2017 Hyundai i30 is a more appealing entry level small car than the Mazda 3 or Toyota Corolla, but can the higher grades step up to the plate as well? Here are our first impressions on Australian roads

2017 Hyundai i30 SR Premium review

Let me just start this owner’s review with the disclaimer that value and practicality have, throughout the course of my life, made their way to the top of my priority list. When the time came to hand over my VW Up, I was adding performance to the list for the first time...

2014 Hyundai i30 SR review

I purchased my Hyundai i30 SR in 2014, having compared it against a number of other cars in the warm-hatch class. I made my purchasing decision based (in no particular order) on features, performance, ride, value for money, reliability and time for delivery. Almost two and a half years on, I can say that I am happy with my purchase...

2017 Hyundai i30 Premium 1.6 CRDi review

It’s not every day we get to buy a new car. And your first-ever brand-new car is important, not just because you’ve made that massive decision to buy a new car, but it has to be the right one. It makes a statement: of all the cars I could have picked, I chose this one. I bought my very first new car just last Friday...

2015 Hyundai i30 Active X Review

Fuel economy in urban areas is disappointing, and it is always more than 10 litres per 100km. However other features far outweigh the disappointment of the real world economy not matching the numbers on the windscreen decal. For comparison, our 2014 Subaru Forester 2.5, returns around 8.0-Litres per 100Kms for urban driving...

2016 Hyundai i30 Active X (sunroof) Review

The 130 is the complete package. All the technology you could ask for, great iPhone connectivity, all the instruments are clearly visible and the adjustable steering works a treat for the two drivers using the car. We were lucky to see and get the beige leather appointed interior which is a big plus after so many black interior options...

2015 Hyundai i30 Active Review

I bought my Hyundai in June 2015 and it was the best decision I made. $19,990 drive away for a new car is an irresistible deal, especially when it comes with a peace of mind of a 5 year unlimited KM warranty and capped price annual service. 1) Safety - peace of mind of 5 star ANCAP and 7 airbags, reversing camera in base model...

2008 Hyundai i30 Slx Review

This car wasn't meant for a farmer's wife, and its special features are driving me around the bend.1) It beeps incessantly if you haven't put the seatbelt on, which I don't need to do on our internal tracks. 2) It flattens the battery if you don't remove the ignition key to double lock the car, which I don't need to do and so sometimes forget...

2012 Hyundai i30 Premium Review

Hyundai i30 is a solid car that handles very well. It has just one issue but it is major and costly. Hyundai claims via the fuel sticker city consumption of 9.7L / 100K. The reality is fuel consumption of 12.78L/100K measured over 9 months and approximately 12 refills. I have kept all records and receipts.That is 35% more than what buyers have been told...

2013 Hyundai i30 Sr Review

Coming up to 2 years of ownership, I thought I would share a small review on of my I30 SR Auto. Being my first brand new car, I have been very pleased with my purchase. It has travelled 36,000km and has not had a single hiccup while driving. Since day 1 I have only ever put BP Ultimate (I know its not recommended, but it is all I've ever used in my past vehicles) and have had it serviced every 7,500km (Just a preference I have)...

2015 Hyundai i30 Active X Review

My stock-standard Hyundai i30 ActiveX/Series II GD3, 1.8l petrol unit cost me less than $23K on-road and has proven to be a very enjoyable car to drive, both in city and country traffic. The i30 is very 'nimble' and the 1.8l motor has proven to be a very free-revving unit (I use 98 Octane/Shell V-Power) with more than adequate power in traffic and for over-taking on the freeway...

2012 Hyundai i30 Elite Review

I have owned this car for 2.5 years and have covered a modest 32,000 kms. I must say that these 2.5 years have been excellent and trouble free. This is the the only car I have ever owned (amongst Japanese, Australian and Euro cars) that I have never had to raise any issues at service time for warranty or ever needed anything looked at, adjusted etc...
