Hyundai i30

When it launched in 2007, the i30 signalled a bit of a renaissance for Hyundai; it seemed that the Korean brand was no longer content to pump out cheap cars with little charm and appeal.

Thanks to strong styling, generous interior appointments and specialist suspension tuning for Australian roads, the small-sized i30 hatch – and wagon – was impressive enough to win CarsGuide Car of the Year in 2007. With prices ($20,240-$47,490) and features now well into the realm of the Volkswagen Golf and Toyota Corolla, the Hyundai i30 range, starting with the i30 GO and ending with the i30 N PERFORMANCE LUX S.ROOF stands not as a cheap alternative, but as a true competitor.

This vehicle is also known as Hyundai Elantra GT.
