Huyndai i30 PD Hatchback 1.6L Turbo Petrol T-GDi SR Premium (2017-2018) has been discontinued and replaced by Huyndai i30 PD Hatchback 1.6L Turbo Petrol T-GDi N Line Premium.
2018 SR Premium PD2
On Tuesday 06 November 2018 night something in the front suspension dramatically failed whilst I was driving along.
It is a new 2018 - I30 SR Premium with 3000kms on it and
purchased on 02 October 2018.
There was no warning ⚠️. It just went bang!
The vehicle was towed to Hyundai as a result.
I have now been informed that the front passenger suspension has failed. ...I am extremely concerned that the structural integrity of this vehicle is now questioned. If I had been driving along the motorway at 110km the result could have been quite different. For a new vehicle to have such a dramatic failure in the suspension is unacceptable. All I30 owners should be made aware of the possible fault. It could have caused an accident! So you could be sitting on a ticking time bomb that could go off without warning like mine did.

Our 3rd Hyundai in a row, no issues with the previous two over 9 years and not expecting any from this one.
Surprisingly comfortable car, close to our previous i40 in terms of ride comfort, kids have no problem falling asleep in the back and plenty of adjustment in the seats
Economy is good, close to the claimed figures
Smart cruise works well as does everything in the cabin.
Only negatives are
- DCT transmission is a little jerky when trying to travel slowly, (e.g. going slow up our driveway) If not trying to crawl away slowly the transmission is fine and changes smoothly and quickly normally ...
Step up for Hyundai, but same misses let it down.
Overall, probably one of the best cars in it's price range, but it's not perfect.
Good design, spacious, great boot space and flexibility (flat seats, boot lip etc).
Seats are comfortable, although the quality of the leather isn't the best, and some of the plastics are a bit cheap.
Feels solid to drive and handling is really good and up there against cars that are priced well above.
Features and inclusions are also well above a car in this price range - you get a lot of bang for your buck IMO.
The engine handles well and has got some ...

i30 sr lives up to expectations
Was looking to upgrade, had a good run with Honda's but nothing really inspired there, tried the HRV, good space but a bit dull, civic RS looks a bit...out there fro me, too many angles and fake vents. Really like the golf, but won't buy VW after their dieselgate saga and reliability issues - friend/family experience has put me off totally. Tried the Kia sportage, but diesel is the best motor, and not so good for mostly city driving. Tried the Kona, very nice but some features we wanted were not available. So drove the i30sr, premium, ticked ju...st about all the boxes, except we were thinking SUV, but re-thought that after driving the i30, do we really need to sit higher and pay more for the privilege, and more boot space in the i30. The SR is really good to drive, great torque, steering and balance, so many features, great finish, reasonable servicing costs, 10yr roadside and 10yr map updates. It has all the tech and it works well, info screen clear and easy to read. Fuel economy using 91RON sitting at 8.1/100 mostly city driving after 2,500kms with some quick squirts, its hard not too, its fun. Once you've driven these small petrol turbo "high torque at low rpm" motors its hard to look at anything else. You can feel the local suspension and steering improvements, this all works very well on our chopped up roads and manhole covers. This is my first Hyundai so will see how it goes long term, but 5 yr warranty helps show the confidence they have in the car, the dealer experience was quite good. lots of friends now have Korean cars with pretty much unanimous satisfaction. Hyundai have done a good job with this new i30, Korean cars are trying the hardest to deliver at the moment, don't usually give 5 stars, but thus far the car is excellent, it does what it says on the box and we are very happy with the purchase. A year plus on, 20k kms, using 91 fuel, still averaging 7.8l/100 combined, 6.5 hwy, no issues, suspension working nicely on very mixed surfaces, tires wearing ok, brakes are excellent, no regrets.
Purchased in February 2018 for $33,000.00.
Performance of the i30n is amazing. So powerfully driven by the 1.6L turbo engine. The finishes inside the car are beautiful with the black and red leather seats and finishes on the dash. I bought the car for my wife but i think i drive it more than her due to how much fun it is to drive.
So so good
Bought the SR premium.
What I love: the sunroof (panoramic and extends to the back seat!), economic fuel efficiency (8L/km in central city driving), seat coolers (noticeable in the hot weather)
What annoys me: a bit jolty in the lower gear changes (likely due to the DCT), poor vision with the reverse camera, the hyundai app (autolink) is truly terrible and not worth using
What is ok: the infotainment system, back seat room, boot space (you can make it a bit bigger with a space saving spare tyre.
Absolute pleasure to drive
This is my wife's 2nd I 30 we previously had the premium edition from 2014 to two months ago when we decided to upgrade to the new generation I 30 sr premium 1.6 litre turbo and must say this car is a credit to Hyundai having seen Hyundai grow from there original excel days .. I would highly recommend this product and model to anyone yes it's the top of the range and a bit pricey but you will not be disappointed at all we look forward to years of trouble free motoring just like our previous i 30
