Hyundai i30 Review
Get everybody talking
Car envy, you might try to deny it but the truth is we’ve all suffered from it at some time or another. Whether it was your colleague, your best friend or your boss who bought the latest and greatest vehicle isn’t important. It was all about the car. The one that they now owned and you wish you had. Not every car can evoke this response, though a Hyundai that certainly can, is the striking i30. Hyundai’s cool kid on the block has it all, dashing good looks, a full house of features and top performance to boot. Its popularity therefore comes as no surprise.
The i30 doesn’t have to work hard to get noticed. Its design is both elegant and refined while at the same time also sporty and trendy, giving it an all-round appeal not found in many class competitors that usually offer only one or the other. From its broad stance, alloy wheels and dual intake on the outside to its top quality finishes and materials on the inside, the i30 boldly states that it’s in a league of its own, one that many aspire to attain.
But it’s not just the Hyundai i30’s appearance that makes it powerful. Under the hoods of both the 1.6L and 2.0L models lurk powertrains that mean business on the open road.Responsive steering and smooth gear changes furthermore allow you to navigate your way through congested traffic while also making it possible for you to react quickly in unforeseen situations.
Beauty is also not just skin deep on the i30. Almost every active and passive safety feature has been implemented to ensure optimum occupant protection – ABS, EBD, Airbags and ESP, you’ll find it all there. And on the luxury feature front, Hyundai certainly hasn’t skimped either.
From a top quality radio/CD/mp3/aux/USB audio system and automatic air conditioning to a height adjustable driver’s seat and electric heated outside mirrors, the Hyundai i30 wants you to experience a luxurious level of travelling. And you certainly will do.
Though not sporting an entry-level vehicle price tag, you get a whole lot more than you’d expect from a Hyundai i30. Better yet, you’ll get to turn your friends, family and co-workers just a little green.
Did you know? The i30 is often incorrectly referred to as the Hyundai 130. This is due to a little media confusion regarding the vehicle’s name before it was launched.
