Review Summary:

Hyundai reveals its all new 2014 . With minimalistic redesigning carried out on the inside and out, the i30 is a rolling example of Hyundai’s cutting edge designs and passion for modernity.

Interior space


Lacking features


Sophisticated, modern, and extravagant to look at. This petite has a lot to say about itself. The designers thought of everything for the 2014 Hyundai i30 with the front arching grille almost connecting to the aggressive eyelids that house massive Xenon lights. The rear maintains the styling points with its sharp edges and wide rear window.

The interior is plain and dare we say, a little boring, when compared to the exterior. The rear seats can fit 3 people better than most hatchback since it’s wider and the middle seat has an almost flat transmission tunnel making fighting for foot space with your fellow passengers a thing of the past. The boot has one of the largest storage capacities in its class and rear seats fold down completely flat for larger items. One neat feature is the glove box that is chilled by the A/C to keep your drinks cool.

Although there is no Bluetooth; an AUX jack & a USB port come standard. Within the limited number of available options, the panoramic sunroof is probably the most exciting offering.

What’s on offer?

The base i30 is priced at AED 56,900. The only available 1.6L 4 cylinder puts out a decent 128 Horsepower and 157 Nm of torque. Using variable valve technologies improves performance and efficiency as well as enhancing fuel economy.

Summing it…

The i30 is stylish, practical, and efficient. It offers more for less than the competition in terms of features, performance and fuel economy.
