Hyundai i30

(2017 - present)

The Hyundai i30 is a mid-sized family car range that consists of hatchback, liftback (i30 Fastback) and estate (i30 Tourer) body styles. The current model is the third generation i30, launched in late 2016 before going on sale in the UK in early 2017.

There is a high-performance version of the i30, called the i30 N. We are building a separate page for this model so check back soon.

The Hyundai i30 has received average to good reviews from the UK motoring media, and ranks right in the middle of the midfield for this sector. It has been praised for its practicality and low running costs, although has been criticised for a lack of driver appeal compared to some of its rivals.
