Bought one of theses last year paid £10,300 new!! Wasn't interested until I test drove it!! These are much better than anyone would imagine!! Air conditioned glove box, aux and iPod inputs (includes ipod connector lead) for stereo which has a built in under dash subwoofer, up to 55mpg on a long run! Now 1 year old and not 1 single problem, not even a rattle or a squeak !!!
why buy 2 year old car when can buy 4 year old even cheaper
or get even older one loads cheaper

Why would you spend the best part of 9k on this when you can buy so much … Why would you spend the best part of 9k on this when you can buy so much more for the money by buying a two year old car?



Because, despite everyone whinging about spending cuts and the like, people still have too much money and can 'afford' to fritter money on brand new cars.

Me? I'd rather invest my money in something that will go up in value, not down

Because it comes with a 5 year warranty... something you dont get with a second hand 2 year old car... and its actually a very good car...
These were £7995 on the scrappage scheme, which was a bargain. Now VAT has gone up from 15 to 20%, and scrappage has ended, this is a bargain, HOT.
I have had one of these as a courtesy car & was impressed.
Also find me a 2 year old car with five years dealer warranty.

I actually bought mine right at the end of the scrappage deal and it was £13,300 reduced to £10,300,not £7995, the i20 was £7995 with scrappage...
true but just thought bit stupid saying why buy new car when you can second hand one cheaper

Thank you for providing the typical response that people usually make to deals on this sort of standard car... IE the I haven't driven one BUT response!!

Was that Thecaptain joking when he said "air conditioned glove box" what for, samples or a packed lunch?



But I bet a air conditioned glovebox on an Audi or BWM would not sound so stupid??
Car deal threads on HUKD really bring the nonsense out of the woodwork, don't they?

I bought mine on scrappage and paid £8000 for it. £2000 scrappage and Hyundai gave a good discount on top. Great car. USB connection is the best thing since sliced bread
its fugly
I've owned and driven a fair few cars in my time and my current i30 is one of the finest of the lot. Even something as simple as opening a door and closing it shows a level of precision that can best be described as Germanic - Hyundai upped their game around 4 years ago.

If you read this deal and are thinking... "meh", take half an hour out and visit i30ownersclub.com/forum and see what the enlightened many have to say...

Bought one of thes in April 2010 and it was an excellent price and is an excellent car.
I am a convert to Hyundai and would have another one any day of the week.
Voted hot.
Lol at the car snobs

What you should do, is look to buy 15 or 20 year old cars and replace them on a weekly basis, that way you can say you've had so much more for your money !

Go on then; don't leave us all in suspense! What can we all buy that will go up in price?

I hired one of these in Majorca. Note to people with kids - the Phil & Teds buggy doesn't fit in the boot (without first removing the back wheels from it!). Fits fine in my Ford Focus, so I think the boot on the i30 is too small for a "family car".

LOL, nice one.

My car choices aren't for most, for my 9k I chose to buy an old Lotus Elise, and save another couple of grand for a 51 reg Seat Leon Cupra for daily hack duties.

Now, all this talk of warranties.. I've had no issues with the Seat that would have been fixed under warranty (in fact i've put tyres on it and that's about it) It's faster, no doubt comfier, probably bigger and better spec'd than this Hyundai.

Would I recommend this route to everyone? Of course not, it really isn't for everyone.

The i30 does exactly what it says on the tin, and is probably a better buy than many other cars out there.

This deal is hot because of the saving.

The car itself is simply a lump of uninspiring, dull looking metal and plastic, and with a 1.4 petrol, presumably it barely moves.

Personally, my money would be heading towards the Skoda Fabia diesel if I was spending this sort of money:
hotukdeals.com/dea…548
assuming it's big enough of course.

That way, you'll have a very economical lump of uninspiring, dull looking metal and plastic, that i'd iomagine will also have better residuals.

I don't see this car for this price ????

Superb !!

Come back in six months and let me know how your ten year old Cupra is geting on (_;)
For the price this is an excellent deal for a good solid car - simple. Voted hot if this matches your budget and requirements of a new car.

@OP - Your fatal flaw here is posting something which is over the value of £20. All the money saving and car 'experts' have come out of the woodwork.

It's a jam jar not apples and pears. You have misunderstood. My point … It's a jam jar not apples and pears. You have misunderstood. My point is why would you want such a car when the money can get you so much more? I think this deal is for those who know nothing about cars so they're happy to compromise on the car and shell out 9k for the security of a long warranty. If that's what you want then vote hot.



Security of a long warranty and decent fuel consumption. Voted HOT!
This IS a good deal if you can find it.
I get all sorts of hire cars to use when travelling with work. I had this last week to travel from Lincolnshire to Cornwall. There's always the excitement of what will turn up in the car park - and the disappointment when it turned out to be this! But... once driven I changed my mind. It was absolutely fine, cruised at 70mph all day on the motorways, had an effective air conditioning system, kept drinks cool in the glove compartment(!), was nippy enough in town.

Bad points: It felt reasonably well put together but there was an annoying creak under the front drivers seat and the radio didn't really work (but I could plug a DAB set into the aux port so that was OK). I was surprised at only getting 37mpg on a really good run, I don't drive fast or 'hard' at all - generally 50mpg out of my own 2L diesel car. Also, I'm 6'3" tall and the position of the seat meant there was a glaring blind spot when changing lane on a motorway.

All in all, if you want a car to get you around with a minimum of fuss this is OK. I'd say better than an Astra but not quite as good as a Focus or Skoda Octavia (which was bigger though). I'd imagine the biggest problem (other than the surprisingly poor fuel economy) would be how much value it loses over the 5 years of the warranty.

Couldn't agree more.
It IS a cracking deal if you are in the market for a car of this type.
New at this price with 5 year warranty is HOT
EVERYTIME a car deal is posted - 'get a 2nd hand one cheaper....'

No way, you don't say....thanks for stating the bleeding obvious.

Next time there is a deal for a multi pack of crisps are you going to comment, 'go to the local 'water treatment works and get some recycled crisps for free'.

This is a deal for a NEW car, same as most things that are posted on here and this is no different.

What rubbish! People who do know about cars can also want a long warranty.

And as for the reason for voting hot..the reason to vote hot if it's a good deal. As corranga said, it's a "lump of uninspiring, dull looking metal and plastic"...however, find another "lump of uninspiring, dull looking metal and plastic" for this price before suggesting it's not a hot deal...

Rather have an Astra for this money, 100,000 mile warranty on the Astra too.

wow thanks for that. I take it you have throughly tested one then to know that it isn't interesting to drive.

Be interested to hear what you drive.
