Hire The Hyundai i30 – A Medium Sized Focus Beater

The market for medium sizes family hatchbacks is fiercely competitive and features some of the best cars on the road. If you’re looking to hire a car that’s something of a ‘Goldilocks Car’ – one that’s ‘just right – being neither too small nor too large, neither too fast nor too slow, neither too cheap nor too expensive, then it’s likely you’ll choose a car from this grouping. The Hyundai i30 is the South Korean manufacturers very own entry into this burgeoning sector. It might not be model you’d look for or even the badge you’d look for, but that’s why it’s so good – they have to make cars better than everyone else, because that’s the only way they can stay competitive, so with that in mind, here’s why you shouldn’t overlook the wonderful Hyundai i30.


The Hyundai i30 – A Great Car that’s surely the Pluckiest of Underdogs

When considering the Hyundai i30, let’s first address the elephant in the room – it’s not a Ford Focus, which is likely to be the first car you were thinking of when considering a car in this class. The medium sized hatchback from the house of the blue oval badge is the undisputed King of the sector and the yardstick by which all others are judged and rightly so, it’s a truly great car. It isn’t however, the only great car on the road and despite the Focus being available, there are plenty of people driving i30’s – there are a number of good reasons for that.

The Hyundai i30, like its American rival is a great all-rounder, doing everything well and nothing badly. In terms of frugality the 1.6 diesel models we have available to hire take some beating, being able to return up to 74 miles per gallon on a good run. The interior is a perfectly comfortable place to sit and Hyundai have to give a lot more in terms of features and gadgets in order to woo potential buyers (or hirers) meaning that even a base model Hyundai i30 will be well equipped and where the i30 really beats the Ford hands down is the sheer refinement of it’s impeccably well mannered engines, which delivery a buttery smoothness on the road.

When designing the i30, it’s clear that Hyundai have gone to a lot of trouble to make their medium hatchback look distinctive and stylish and we’ll agree that they’ve certainly succeeded. It’s been suggested that people buy cars in this sector primarily based on looks and whether or not this is accurate, Hyundai weren’t taking any chances, resulting in a car that is certainly interesting and a little edgy to look at.
