Hyundai i30 SR 2018 review: snapshot

The SR and SR Premium are aimed at the warm-hatch market.
EXPERT RATING
8

While the Elite and Premium are more comfort-focused, the SR and SR Premium are aimed at the warm-hatch market. Powered by a 1.6-litre turbo petrol, the sporty pair kick out 150kW/265Nm. The six-speed manual SR is $25,990 while the seven-speed 'DCT' dual-clutch auto is $28,950.

Standard are 18-inch alloy wheels, dual-zone climate control, reversing camera, cloth trim, active cruise control, rear parking sensors, auto headlights, fake leather seats, steering wheel and gear shifter, and keyless entry via smart key technology, power windows front and rear, heated powered door mirrors, rear parking sensors, LED daytime running lights, sat nav, and a space-saver spare.

The SR Premium is basically the same apart from a sunroof, front parking sensors, heated and ventilated electric front seats, and is DCT only, retailing at $33,950.

The six-speaker sound system has AM/FM/DAB radio, Bluetooth and USB and is controlled via a dash-mounted 8.0-inch touch screen. iPhone and Android users will be pleased to know all i30s have Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

The five-star ANCAP safety package is composed of seven airbags, ABS, stability and traction controls, hill-start assist, brake-force distribution, forward AEB, forward collision warning, blind spot detection, lane-change assist, lane-keeping assist, rear cross traffic alert and active cruise.
