i30 1.6L Turbo N Line Hatchback
Hyundai offers both a full ‘N’ performance i30, and also this, the i30 N Line. It takes a few sporty cues both superficially and under the bonnet to try and provide a cost-effective but fun-to-drive ‘warm hatch’ - not quite a full ‘hot hatch'.Read Now
i30 N 2.0L Turbo Hatchback
It's the review I've been looking forward to since I started reviewing cars here at ProductReview.com.au. The i30N is back and it's better than ever. It's a hot hatch that'll conquer the track, make ridiculous sounds and it's an ideal grocery-getter. The big question is, should you buy it over cars like the Toyota GR Yaris, Golf GTi, Golf R or even a Ford Focus ST?Read Now

There are only 500 i30N Fastbacks allocated for Australia. If you missed out on buying one, find out if it's worth hunting one down in this review. To be honest, it's not that different from the hatchback...Read Now
HYUNDAI I30i30 PD Hatchback 1.6L Turbo Diesel CRDi (2017-2021)

Very competent hatchi30 Hatchback 2.0L Petrol GDi (No Badge) (2017-2023)
I hired i30 hatch 2021 with 21k on odometer for week. Interior black, door plastic marked easy, variable cruise control, large infotainment screen, 6 speakers which were ok, but did need to increase base. Seating position ok but could could not quite reach info screen, don’t touch while driving , use steering wheel controls instead. HVAC controls were small, don’t touch while driving. Got 6.6L fuel economy on 80% freeway driving, excellent. 6 Speed auto always found right gear, in normal mode. Other driving modes Eco early gear changes, ignore... Read more it, sport mode holds gears higher rpm ok for hilly conditions. The normal mode is fine holds gears and slows vehicle down. Engine sounds like vacuum cleaner at high rpm, very funny, tyres are ok but reflect road surface some noise gets into cabin. Screen menu in front of driver is good, changes to stalks show on the screen , very surprising. Steering wheel controls intuitive and easy to use. Drivers seat ok cushion a fraction short for 5’10 bloke, but can live with it because the seat is very adjustable. Overall good unit.

Husband uses to and from work.
Bought brand new from dealer, last in Australia currently apparently. Didn’t come with any extras though like mats or dashcam.
This is my dream cari30 PD Hatchback 1.6L Turbo Petrol T-GDi N Line Premium (2017-2023)
My car is now 4 years old but still like new. I haven't had a single issue with it and Hyundai customer service is excellent. It has great fuel economy and really takes off, unlike my previous i30. I really love having the panoramic roof and the heated and cooled seats and use both quite often. The only other thing I wish it had is blind spot detector, but I can live without it and it has much more features than other cars in that price range. I will probably buy another i30 after this as I haven't found a car I preferShow details
I had this car from dealer, used few years, now engine makes tiking noise, we did service at time, now milage only 111000, dealer also not give good answer, looks like cannot trust hyhundai engine for long time.Show details
Car is okay to run but the promised map software upgrade never happened -- services department not doing the jobi30 PD Hatchback 2.0L Petrol GDi Active (2017-2023)
I bought a i30 elite 2019 2.0L and have been using it for 4 years now, the car is doing what it supposed to do, minor issue like the eco mode does not hold after restart.
The major thing I don't like Hyundai is the misleading about the Sat Nav upgrade plan, it clearly displayed on the "servicing" webpage, but within this 4 years of services, it has never been touched and done, even each time I requested it.
Engine needs to be replaced after 168,000 kilometersi30
I bought a brand new i30 back in 2014. It has full service history by the dealership at Hoppers Crossing.
In the recent 6 months, engine makes noise and got checked by the dealer and said engine has gone and need a new engine.
Manufacture won't accept the claim, says it is out of 5 years warrantee.
What a deceptive warrantee: offer customer 5 years unlimited kilometer warrantee, for a normal household driver, you won't drive over 200 kilometers in 5 years, average is 125 kilometers.
Not recommend to buy Hyundai, the engine is not made to last long.
A reasonable expectation is 10years at 250 kilometers, but please do not expect this from Hyundai.
A reliable highway and city car.i30
We have had this car now for nearly 1 year. It constantly takes the kids to school, runs around Canberra, and picks up the shopping.
The economy isn't great, but isn't terrible either. It has had very low maintenance costs, and this is why we like it. It also is very big inside and has plenty of space for 2 kids and 2 adults.
It struggles climbing mountains, and you can almost feel the strain coming off the engine. But for puttering around town, it has been ideal, comfortable and reliable and we like it.Show details

Good but could be better.i30 PD Hatchback 1.6L Turbo Petrol T-GDi N Line (2017-2023)
I purchased my 2020 Nline one under the top of the range model.
Bad- after 2 years when unclipped the passengers visor the plastic snapped off in its holder, Hyundai have refused to repair and I am currently going through fair trading for a $380 clip.
Of the mark the car lags, this has been dangerous in traffic as its take of is unpredictable in heavy traffic when you need it to be quick of the mark.
Driving on the Freeway, the noise on some surfaces is way to loud, in owing 13 cars this has been the noisier of all.

Safety is terrible!i30N Hatchback 2.0L Turbo Petrol T-GDi (2021-2023)

Hyundai service costingsi30 Hatchback (2017-2023)
I have had my car for a few years now and am generally quite satisfied with it. I recently drove a Toyota new car and was most impressed with the better overall quality of that car
My gripe with Hyandi is their costs on parts and servicing after the warranty has expired. My wife recently took our car to replace a brake light bulb and was quoted $70 to replace it. The light bulb costs less than $10 and it takes less than 5 minutes to replace.
I have also had other issues and was quoted ridiculous prices to repair something which you would think would cost less than $300 for the part and labor. They quoted well over a $1000 for the repair . It absolutely threw me of their costings .I will never go near a Hyundai again

Questions & Answers
2019 hyundai i30 active pd2 hatchback.
Eco mode when I press the eco modto drive in it. It stays in but then the next time I start my car the eco mode light is turned off. I have to press the button. For it to come back on... is this normal does anyone's else's eco button turn off.
Should the eco button stay on while driving and if u turn car off should it come on.....
Mine is the same, I raised the issue to dealer and Hyundai head office according to the manual it should stay. But their answer is not helpful, like, "don't bother me" even I copy the page to show them.
Thank you for that reply yes I thought it should stay on as the 2016 models stay on. And manual says it should stay on....
I have read on some pages it turns off if u have a heavy load or accelerating hard doesn't make sense I should give the dealer a call and ask about that. If yours is doing it maybe it should turn off.
Coz normally once u press it it should stay on all the time do u have a 2019 model.....
How do u know if the navigation is updated. Thanks for reply
Hi, I have the i30 elite sedan. Recently serviced, now I cannot get the digital speed reading to display. I can get the compass up, then scrolling down get everything bar the speed screen.
Give them a call. I've heard on the newer ones software updates can be problematic. They may have a quick fix. Sure you're not the only one. Good luck. John
How is it should I buy it, how's the future of car if we compare it with Corolla
I would prefer Toyota cars or consider manufactory engine warrantee with 10years.
I learnt lesson now, in my opinion with 5 years warrantee it indicates Hyundai cars are not made for long, miss leading! Average household do not drive 200k within 5 years.
Consumers need to know how to protect themselves by not fall into big corporations' sales pitch.
Also if only offers 5 years, then no need to consider to service car at expensive dealership.
The Toyota will be better, but if you only want it for 4 or so years, the Hyundai is fine, and it's much bigger inside and more comfortable. The Toyota may have better fuel economy though
I can't tell you which one to buy as I do not own a Hyundai i30 and a corolla at the same time, what I am saying is, the free software upgrade when serviced at Hyundai dealer is a joke, not sure about Toyota's map upgrade policy and how good it is. One last thing, mine is i30 2.0L with conventional gearbox, there are recalls with the more complicated 1.6L dual clutch gearbox, so Toyota's CVT is very safe.
