Review: Hyundai i30

What does it offer?

The next-generation i30 is available with four engine options and six power options. The 1.6 liter (VGT) diesel engine is the most efficient and preferred out of the options which give 128PS at 4000rpm. What is new in the next-generation i30 is the Blue Drive Technologies which includes Integrated Stop and Go (ISG) and alternator management system increasing the overall efficiency of the car and lower down the emissions.

The car is also equipped with the electronic stability control technology which is a must have safety feature.

The Beauty:

The car is designed with extensive body work and has stylish looks with contemporary curves. The front is daunting and the outer body line is exquisitely designed and the lines add external beauty to the design. The car looks as good from the back as the front thanks to its high mounted large tail lams. The car apart from being very stylish is also among the safest picks with safety features like ABS, Rear Wiper Rear Defogger, Remote Central Locking, EBD, ESP, and Rear Seat Belts.

The Hyundai i30 also comes with a reliable navigation control situated in the center console with a 7 inch touch screen display.

The Beast:

The overall length of the vehicle is 4300mm with enough head and leg room and a boot space of 378 liters which is a 10 percent increase from the previous model. The hatchback provides comfortable seating for 5 passengers and features like Flex Steer with options for normal, comfort and sport operating modes.

The car comes in both diesel and petrol versions with a 1396cc, 4-cylinder DOHC engine which is capable of generating a pulsating torque of 247Nm at 137Nm@5000 rpm. In both the engine types the car comes with a 5 Speed Manual Transmission gearbox with an option for automatic transmission too.

The Thrill:

The most popular 1.6 liter (VGT) U-II diesel engine can race 0-60 mph in 10.9 seconds with a top speed of 122 mph. The petrol engine is a 4-cylinder 1396cc which can produce power of 107.5 bhp at 6200 rpm and comes with DOHC feature. The mileage of the petrol version is about 8Km/liter in the city and 12km/liter on the road.


The next-generation i30 like its predecessors is extremely stylish and skillfully spacious. It comes with a wider dashboard with AC vents on both the sides. The boot space is enough to carry all your luggage and there is enough leg room for the passenger in the front too.

The instrument meter consists of a tachometer and a speedometer. The seats are pretty comfortable with cushioning for long journeys and have active headrests, seat-belt pretension and reminders. The Hyundai i30 comes with a dual climate control feature and a panoramic sunroof.

The next-generation Hyundai i30 is a mid-segment hatchback with out of the box bodywork alterations to make the car design a unique experience. The car comes with a arching roofline, sporty xenon headlamps and fog lamps, and ORVM indicators. The height of the car has been reduced to 1470mm to make the exterior look sportier.

The curb weight of the car is 1293 Kgs.

Should I buy one?

The next generation Hyundai i30 revealed at the 2011 Frankfurt Motor show is the improved version of the i30 which is a premium choice in the hatchback segment. The car has a curvy compact design but is very spacious which makes it very desirable and you can opt for this amazing car.

Price and availability:

The car with its current model is available with various discounts and the price offered in UK is likely to be around ВЈ12,500 for the basic model.
