Reviews Overview

The reviews for this car refer to it as the “DNA” car for Hyundai, meaning it’s a car that defines them. It’s the backbone of their range of cars. Although the car was built by Hyundai from Korea, the car was actually designed more for Europe.

It was even tested at the track in Nurburging to show its European roots. That’s what the “N” in the i30n stands for.

According to reviewers, this car has a solid hatchback version that is competitive with just about anything else in the field. These cars are turbocharged and the most recent version of them relies on a hybrid system that runs at 48 volts.

If what you want is fuel efficiency, the 1.6-liter diesel engine with four cylinders can get as much as around 60 miles per gallon, which is going to be competitive with just about anything in that range.

Handling

The car gets favorable reviews when it comes to how it handles on the road. The car gets a good grip on the road. While it won’t win any awards for handling, it does an excellent job and it will work for just about anyone who wants a solid car for general usage.

Interior

Hyundai is known for blowing people away with comfort on the inside of its cars, and the i30 is no exception. So, although the aesthetics aren’t going to impress you, the physical climate controls, the ease of use, and the way all of the ergonomic materials feel when you’re operating the car certainly will.

This means that if you often have trouble getting comfortable in a car, then this Hyundai version could be exactly what you need in order to really feel relaxed and give your body a break if it’s used to straining in vehicles.
