    .............................................................
    This is the new Hyundai i30!
    Now the i30 may have been seen as a budget option compared to the likes of the VW Golf and Ford Focus, but with updated looks both inside and out, coupled with new engine choices, could the latest generation change that?
    In terms of engines, all versions are mild hybrid, with the range topper being a 1.5-litre 4 cylinder turbo petrol which can put down 160hp and hit 0 - 60mph in under 9 seconds.
    Ok, so the stats aren’t incredible. But let’s not forget that with a carwow saving, you can pick up a new i30 for under £20,000! With that in mind, if you’re in the market for a new hatchback, should you start considering the i30? You’ll have to stick with Mat to find out!

I wish you did an extra video (or chapter in this video) about the cheapest available configuration ("entry level"), at least in terms of interior design and infotainment. And, please, give us the price of exactly the configuration you have tested there. (you gave a link to your favorite configuration, but its not clear whether that is what we just saw).

Seen one and sit on one years ago in a Motorshow. I loved the interior, but also 395 liters of charge capacity on the trunk is the same as a Seat Arona (a SUV) so that is brutally good. And the octavia is on a bigger segment of cars so you should not even compare it. But man even being an average car still looks brilliantly beautiful, and now they have micro hybridation which helps a lot on city restrictions. Brilliant car I'd say.

I will never buy another Kia. Period. We contacted the Kia Corporate office to help with an issue we had after our car broke down on the side of the interstate 2 times after being serviced at 2 different Kia dealerships, Langdale Kia in Valdosta and Crown Kia in Saint Petersburg. Kia Corporate gave us the run around, telling us they would send our service request upper management to have it approved. After 3 weeks, they finally told us that no our car wasn’t under warranty! What?! It’s like they didn’t even read what we submitted. Kia doesn’t know how to fix their own vehicles and doesn’t care if they break down multiple times. This has been a horrible

Been driving an i30 2015 model for the last 4 years. Bought it at the unbeatable price of 11k€ at 23k kilometers in 2017 (a golf would have been twice as expensive). I can fully confirm this review, the car is "allright" in almost all situations. Nothing good about it. Nothing seriously bad either. Its... okish. But the price is really fair, you rarely get so much car for that money. Would I buy it again? If Im low on budget and need something reliable to drive me from a to b, yes. As Im now in the situation to afford something better, Ill get a E200 from 2019 soon with a lot of extras. For the german viewers: at top speed on the highway the engine and wind is really loud in this car, it takes quite a long time to get to maxspeed (180 in my case), but it decelerates fast even without using the brake. Its a very light car, so strong winds on high speed make the ride very bumpy and you should drive really carefully, specially watch out when overtaking trucks. Well...in my verdict, the car is not really made for the highway.

A better way to judge i30 vs Golf is to source 5 year old cars & 10 year old cars and review them head-to-head. Any car is nice when it's brand new, but the longterm owner review would speak volumes for the actual car.

The residual value certainly won't be better than a Golf! The rear of the i30 looks far more stylish than previous versions, but the Koreans still can't get all elements of the design to agree with European taste. The front looks awful. It's an attempt to look Audi-esque, but fails. You're not in that league Hyundai.......

9:21 How can decoupling the gearbox from the engine save fuel? I mean, engine burns 0.5-0.7 lt/100km of fuel (idling consumption) when in neutral, but coasting without accerelation pedal is 0.0 lt/100km in every car. I couldn't understand how this "intelligent manual transmission" works.

@rasputinf yes, they say in some cases the engine will shut down during sailing. Not sure what the turbo thinks of that. :)

преди 19 дни
rasputinf
rasputinf

@sixaxis yes but coasting in gear helps engine to rotate, without using the fuel. but if the engine is decoupled from transmission (neutral) it needs fuel to rotate in idling rpm. so, the question is: how the engine will rotate during this 'sailing' mode? (maybe it will stop the engine like Start&Stop system???)

преди 19 дни
sixaxis
sixaxis

I think the answer is sailing. And a different driving style to get used to. While coasting as you said consumes 0.0l it also slows the car with the engine break. I assume with the decoupled gearbox is like shifting to neutral, nothing slows the car directly, it runs freely like a sailboat, so you can achieve longer distances with no consumption. I suppose that also means that owners of these cars should say goodbye to engine break.

I think the lack of automatic braking and acceleration is due to the car being Manual, It cant change gears to match speed when the car gets too slow, The 8 speed automatic might have that feature. Just my thoughts though.🤷‍♂️

sixaxis

That's correct. In my country you can put together the i30 piece by piece asyou want, and yes adaptive cruise control can be ordered only together with automatic gearbox. And just for the record an adaptive cc together with lane keeping assist won't really make the car self driving.
