Autoexpress review
On the road price: £13,600 - £16,450
For : Strong all-round package, excellent value for money
Against : Styling not as cohesive as Cee’d, not as composed through corners
The i30 shares its platform with the Kia Cee’d, but has slightly revised suspension settings. It feels composed and reassuring, and while it’s far from inspiring to drive, it is comfortable and refined enough. Long journeys won’t be a chore. The same range of 1.6-litre and 2.0-litre petrol and diesel engines are used, too – but Hyundai has made a few changes which improve refinement. There’s also a 1.4-litre petrol entry-level car, and we found little difference in performance between this and the 1.6; however, if you can afford it, go for the excellent 1.6-litre diesel. It has impressive punch, particularly when pulling out of junctions.

The i30 is a vital car for Hyundai. It has to consign the maker’s ‘bargain’ image to history, pushing quality and driveability forward. Sister company Kia has already enjoyed such success with the Cee’d, and significantly, both cars are essentially the same, even down to doors and dashboard. The Hyundai has a bluffer nose though, and elongated rear lights that have a touch of Mercedes A-Class about them. The flat, recessed tailgate also looks a bit BMW 1-Series. The five-door hatch will, in time, be joined by an estate and three-door version, and for now is offered in Comfort, Style and Premium variants. All are generously equipped, and keen pricing also works in the Hyundai’s favour; it’s pitched below mainstream rivals such as the Ford Focus, Vauxhall Astra and Toyota Auris.

The well-constructed interior offers a comfortable seating position and plenty of rear space. The i30 actually has more rear legroom than the already-spacious Cee’d. The boot is practical, and as the rear seatbases flip, you can create a virtually flat load area. The trouble is, lower-end models don’t look as robust as they actually are, due to a large expanse of dull plastic. More upmarket variants get a leather steering wheel and metal-effect centre console. All models are very well equipped though, with even entry-level versions offering ESP, alloys, electric windows, air con and a USB auxiliary port. What’s more, the i30 offers a five-year warranty, though this is still two years less than the Cee’d. Retained values are better than the Kia though, with the Hyundai holding on to just under 39 per cent after three years.

These are pre-reg's (10) and with only the basic spec and 1.4 engine they won't be too clever for most I imagine.

Still a lot of car for the money though so still hot from me.
Good city car.

This is also the previous model ie pre April 2010. Latest model has revised grill etc. Still a decent car for money though, 5 yr warranty etc.
I own a 59 plate i30.

Superb car. Reliable, quiet, smooth, and has loads of extras. The basic i30 Comfort has alloys, spare alloy, air con, CD, all of those perks as standard.
Had one for a couple of weeks as a hire car. Really nice to drive and has a comfortable ride. Loads of kit for the price. Looks like a BMW 1 series from the back :)

The one at this price is the Classic trim and even though it is a basic trim, it still has loads of kit that other manufacturers would charge for.

watch out for motorpoint trying to flog you *compulsory* EU reg plates, they are NOT compulsory (Its my job to know these things), they take the reg plates off and add one with stars (EU) with the same number then charge you for this. It seems quite deceitful and I fell out with them for this reason. I wont buy stuff off people like that.
Most public sector workers qualify for the Vauxhall/ Saab partners scheme (check online) which saved me the same amount off my last car without any haggling or hassle.
Good deal on a decent car, but if you go to the Motorpoint homepage there's a deal on a Focus which many may find better.

Still hot though. KIA and Hyundai have come a long way over the last couple of years and the warranties are excellent.

hooray henry
Good city car.

No, this is a Focus segment car. You're thinking of the i10 maybe? Best to keep quiet when you don't know what you're talking about.

Thanks for this info mate, never knew about it.

I thought it would be the usual BS discounts i.e. 5% of the MRRP and then it would stilll be loads more expensive than Deal Drivers / Drive the Deal etc... but it actually does make the cars a lot cheaper than the online providers.

Basically for those who don't know, the scheme is for anyone who knows someone who works for Vauxhall OR if you are or know someone who works for / is a member of anyone below

A Selection of Companies within the Associate Partners Scheme are:

Parcel Force
Post Office
Prison Officers Association
Rentokil Initial PLC
Royal Mail
Southern Water
Police Federation
Asda Stores
British Airways
Co-operative Group
EDF Energy
John Lewis Partnership
Legal & General
Morrisons PLC
Civil Servants (CSMA Members)
Health & Education Workers (members of UNISON)
too late. I bought all three. One for me and two to sell on. Any offers?

£5,000 - it's secondhand now :p
Noticed Broadspeed selling new pre reg 1.4 i30's, 5dr in solid paint. £7,997. £1000 more for new 60 reg. Think they charge a £100 fee on top of the £7.997 for acting as a middle man. Seems a good price.
