It’s quite slick, the i30 sedan. Low and smart looking, with a stylish grille on the front. It’s not what I would call sporty and there’s nothing edgy about it, but it does have a sophisticated shape and feels like a mature, classic looking car.
Inside is also impressive, especially for this price. The car I trialled had cream leather perforated seats, normally reserved for much more expensive vehicles, so they are a game changer in this price category.
It’s also got a leather steering wheel, a 10.25-inch digital 'Supervision' instrument cluster in front of the steering wheel and a well designed centre console, with simplified Hyundai design (though the row of buttons under the multimedia screen is still there). It’s all functional and you feel good driving this car.
