2019 Hyundai i30 N Line manual review

The SR-replacing N-Line brings the performance N look, without quite so much go, to the i30 package. It turns out the buck-banging manual warm hatch is quite a cracker.

The CarAdvice Winners Circle 2018, Kez Casey: Hyundai i30 N

Hyundai can’t make a hot hatch, can it? From the very moment the South Korean brand announced it would be creating its own performance division, the i30 N drew a line in the sand.

2018 Hyundai i30 SR long-term review, report three: interior comfort and practicality

Our long-term 2018 Hyundai i30 SR is one very well-loved hatch amongst the CarAdvice team. For a lot of us, we have a long commute to work, so a car that is comfortable on the daily grind is important. That it's reasonably quick certainly doesn't hurt, either... The Hyundai's interior is a decent step up from its predecessor...
