Hyundai i30 Review

The Hyundai I30 was released as the brand’s major entry into the European market. It was even manufactured at the firm’s factory in the Czech Republic. Remarkable improvement was the first thing critics acknowledged in this European-intended model. Its predecessors—Pony, Excel, and Accent—were behind the original i30 in being an evolutionary C-segment hatchback. The i30 proved cynics wrong with its credible, affordable, and convincing features that not only woke up mainstream European manufacturers but also placed the Korean company as a leader in consistently providing remarkable quality vehicles.

Pros

The Hyundai i30’s new design is based on the company’s fluidic sculpture principle. The windscreen pulls forward and is lowered, giving the car a swept-back stance. It also includes the Hyundai’s signature feature: the hexagonal grille. The dynamism of this design is amplified in the three-door model, which was released by the end of last year. This design is intended for the younger market, replacing the five-door’s aggression for a redesigned rear end, newly positioned foglights, and a brand new grille design. The car’s aesthetics has also been improved with the lower ride height and wider tracks. The wheelbase remains the same as its predecessor at 2650mm and opts to maximize the car’s length and width for more interior space.

The suspension setup is another impressive feature of the i30, adapting the rear multi-link configuration of class leaders. The MacPherson struts up front continue to deliver this setup. The i30 has also included a FlexSteer system that lets you vary the assistant given to the electric power steering. Three operating modes are used to control the new system’s steering.

Depending on the trim you choose, the i30 comes with two chrome or one body-coloured horizontal bar. The surfaces also tend to appear three-dimensional and give the structure a sophisticated appearance.

Practicality is the prime focus of the Hyundai i30. Clean cut lines, neat metallic finish fragments, and simple symmetry are the primary interior design elements. These pleasing minimalist features are complemented by their ergonomic function. Legroom and headroom is generous at the back. Boot space has been expanded at 378 litres. Access across the seats have also been improved by lowering the transmission tunnel. The cabin also enjoys generous legroom at 11mm more and 30mm larger in headroom.

The i30 gives you four trim levels to choose from, each sporting a different engine: the Classic, Style, Style Nav, and Active. There’s the 1.4-litre and 1.6-litre 98bhp four-cylinder petrol engines that are paired exclusively with a six-speed automatic.

Cons

It’s an exaggeration to have high speed hopes for the Hyundai i30, but it still lags behind the Focus at half a second in the 60mph sprint at 11.1 seconds. This implies how far or how far limited its higher-gear acceleration and ease of use can go along the road. The vehicle also tends to have sluggish responses as it overtakes along the motorway.

Although the interior is simple and functional, there have been problems reaching the stereo’s volume dial. iPhone compatibility issues have also been reported with recent Hyundai systems.

The Hyundai i30: 2007 and beyond

Categorized as a small family car, the Hyundai i30 made its way into the automotive market starting 2007. It shares platforms with Kia’s Cee`d and comes either as a station wagon or hatchback with diesel and petrol engine options and either manual or automatic transmission systems. In the US, the i30 is marketed alongside the Hyundai Elantra and the Elantra Touring in Canada. In 2011, the second-generation i30 was unveiled at the Frankfurt Auto Show.

The concept and design for the i30 was conceived at Hyundai Design and Technical Centre in Russelsheim, Germany. Over the years it was in production, the i30 did very well and enjoyed great reception. It was awarded Car of the Year in Australia in 2007 and Car of the Year in 2008 in Spain. In 2009, it was the Best Family Hatch in New Zealand and was Britain’s Most Satisfying Car in 2010.

The new Hyundai i30 was made available in Europe at the beginning of 2012, the second model to be launched under the Premium Youth Lab brand by Hyundai. When the new i30 was released in the US, it was launched as the Hyundai Elantra GT 2013. It was first seen alongside the new Hyundai Elantra Coupe at the 2012 Chicago Auto Show.
