MPG, running costs & CO2 Rating

4.0 out of 5

In terms of economy, there isn’t a duff engine in the Hyundai i30 range. All the petrol and diesel offerings posted decent fuel-consumption figures during official testing, while insurance and servicing should be affordable and Hyundai’s warranty is one of the best around.

Hyundai i30 Tourer MPG & CO2

If you want the most economical engine, choose the 108bhp 1.6-litre diesel, as this returns 60.1mpg. Opt for the 134bhp version of this engine (which comes with a seven-speed automatic gearbox as standard) and that figure drops – but only to a still-palatable 57.6mpg.

If you choose a petrol i30 Tourer, the entry-level 1.0-litre turbocharged engine officially returns 47.9mpg, while the 138bhp 1.4-litre manages 44.8mpg, or 46.3 if you go for the optional dual-clutch automatic gearbox. If you’re offered the i30 Tourer as a company car, the 108 and 134bhp diesel engines get 30 and 29% Benefit –in-Kind (BiK) ratings respectively, while the petrol engines are liable for 28, 29 or 30% levies.

All i30 Tourers will cost £140 a year in road tax after the first-year fee, which is normally bundled into the on-the-road price.

Insurance groups

Insurance rankings are very low for the i30 Tourer, and it only occupies groups eight to 15 out of 50. Expect low premiums.

Servicing

Hyundai will sell you three years’ worth of services for around £500, and charges an extra £100 if your i30 runs on diesel. These are reasonable enough rates, so we recommend purchasing these packages.

Warranty

Considering most manufacturers offer a three-year/60,000-mile warranty, Hyundai’s five-year/unlimited-mileage guarantee is one of the best around. Out of other strong warranty performers, sister brand Kia offers a seven-year policy (albeit with a 100,000-mile cap) while Toyota offers five years and Renault four.
