The inside story

Hyundai’s attempt at turning the i30 into something upmarket is obvious...

It’s no longer your typical Hyundai affair in there. Hyundai’s attempt at turning the i30 into something upmarket is obvious – well laid-out controls, high quality interior plastics, extensive use of leather, doors that close with an assuring “thud”, factory-fitted sunroof and top notch build quality. And unlike the Avante, the i30 comes with factory-fitted audio head-unit that’s nicely flushed into the centre console.

Leather seats feel almost real and expensive, and at the same time provide equally good lumbar and lateral support – comfy that virtually every chiropractic possibility is catered for. Up to three adults can be seated comfortably at the rear with extra shoulder room to spare, but just like any other hatchbacks, headroom remains limited. There’s also an array of storage spaces within the interior for you to keep knick-knacks safely off prying eyes. Speaking of space - in case you ever need extra boot space, rest assure as the i30’s rear seats does fold flat…But I reckon that will be rare as the i30’s boot is already commodious as it is.

However, while the rest of its competition comes with auto climate control, that missing feature in the i30 is somewhat a letdown.
