Review Summary:

Hyundai reveals its all new 2015 . 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.

Pros

* Exterior styling truly sets it apart from the rest.
* Interior space is pleasantly surprising.
* Impressive set of standard equipment.

Cons

* Convincing people to part with AED 57,900 for a Korean could prove to be a problem.

Looks

Sophisticated, modern, and extravagant to look at. This petite hatchback has a lot to say about itself. The designers thought of everything for the 2015 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. It is without a doubt, one of the prettiest hatchbacks out there.

 Feels

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 hatchbacks 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.

Engineering

With a plethora of equipment being offered as standard, there’s just a panoramic roof and rear arm rest that differentiates one variant, from the other. Fog lamps, Bluetooth connectivity, steering controls, six speakers, and a rear wiper are all standard affair.

What’s on offer?

For AED 52,900, you can get your hands on the 1.6 litre variant, which puts out 128 horsepower at 6,300 RPM and 157 Nm of torque at 4,850 RPM. If you’re willing to shell out AED 57,900, you not only get the panoramic roof and rear cup holders, but a stronger 1.8 litre engine too, which kicks at 148 horsepower at 6,500 RPM and 178 Nm of torque at 4,850 RPM.

Summing it…

The 2015 Hyundai i30 is stylish, practical, and efficient. It offers more for less than the competition in terms of features, performance and fuel economy as well. Would we recommend it? Yes, we would.
