The Hyundai i30 hatchback is pitched to compete directly with the Volkswagen Golf and Ford Focus. Its upmarket interior, sharp styling and some of the high equipment levels in the family hatchback sector certainly justify such a comparison. The i30 comes with Bluetooth connectivity, LED daytime running lights, heated door mirrors and multi-function steering wheel as standard across the range, and the range of engines on offer - 1.4-litre petrol, 1.4-litre diesel and 1.6-litre diesel – are economical and flexible. The move towards competing with the Volkswagen and Ford in terms of specification and fit has meant that the i30 has also moved away from the keen pricing of its predecessor and now most models are of a similar price to their rivals. However, Hyundai's improvement in recent years has been so impressive that we named the i30 the 2012 CarBuyer Car of the Year. The i30 is also available as a Tourer estate.
