One of Aussie's favourite cars is the i30 Hatch. There are many reasons behind it being the favourites for that title. In this review of the Hyundai i30, we are going to discuss the hatch one! Hyundai launched an updated range of i30 in Australia at the beginning of this year. The new update comes bearing unique style and also more standard features, especially when it comes to technological features. With the latest update, Hyundai expects that with this update, they will win over and tempt the buyers of rival models like the Kia Cerato, Mazda3 and Toyota's Corolla. The Hyundai I30 comes in sedan as well as in Hatch.
Hyundai i30 Hatch engine:
The base model i30 comes with a naturally-aspirated 2.0-litre, four-cylinder petrol engine. This engine produces 120kW of power and 203 Nm of torque. It comes mated with a six-speed torque converter automatic that sends the power to the front wheels. The option of a six-speed manual is also available. The claimed fuel economy on the combined cycle is 7.4L/100km. Upon testing, 8.4L/100km was observed in both highways as well as city driving. It has a 50L fuel tank that drinks 91 RON unleaded fuel, which is the cheapest.
Hyundai i30 Hatch exterior:
The Hyundai i30's third generation was launched in 2016. Since then, there have been many updates in the interior and the exterior of this variant in order to prevent it from looking dated or old.
To make the 2021 i30 look unique, it now has a new face. It now incorporates a wider and elaborated grille that comes with new LED DRLs. in addition to that, the new i30 has front and back bumpers as well as redesigned headlights. Also, the rear reflectors of the i30 are now placed a little lower than before.
The body kit of the N Line of the i30 is just amazing due to several features.
These features include the following:
✓ N Line black bezel headlights
✓ N Line front bumper
✓ N Line rear bumper
✓ 18-inch alloys wheels
Coming to exterior colours, all of the grades are available in Phantom Black, Fluidic Metal, Polar White, Fiery Red, Intense Blue and Amazon grey. When it comes to the N Line cars, they can only be had in Lava Orange.
Coming to the measurements of the Hyundai i30 2021, it is a small car with the following dimensions:
✓ 4345mm long
✓ 1795mm wide
✓ 1453mm tall
Hyundai i30 Hatch interior:
When it comes to the interior of the Hyundai i30 Hatch, nothing much has changed. The only significant difference from the previous grades is that the Elite and the N Line Premium grades incorporate a larger 10.25- inch screen.
The entry grade i30 has soft-touch surfaces and a digital instrument cluster, but it has cloth seats. On the other hand, the Active one incorporates leather seats that uplift the cabin.
With N Line, you will get the following:
✓ Metal pedals
✓ Red stitching in the leather upholstery
✓ An N Line steering wheel
✓ N Line gear knob
The interior is also very practical, and here is the reason why we say so. The rear doors of the i30 Hatch can be wide opened; this is why getting in out of the car seats is easy even for the children. It also has large door pockets at the back, and it also adds on a 395-litre boot and a lower load lip. The second row of the entry-grade i30 also has directional air vents.
Even the cabin storage of the Hyundai i30 hatch is incredible. Inside the cabin, there is a deep centre console box, and to keep phones and wallets, you get a large covered area in front of the shifter. There are two cupholders up front that have a 'roller door'.
Coming towards the interior flaws, we can say that the legroom on the rear end is not so great for a tall person. Another grip is that it lacks a proximity key or push-button start. This implies that one has to 'beep' the fob to lock and unlock the car. Also, you will have to put the key into the ignition to start it.
