HYUNDAI i30 2017 Problems
No car is perfect, but we've gathered everything relating to the HYUNDAI i30 2017 reliability here to help you decide if it's a smart buy.
I'm not getting the claimed fuel consumption
Hyundai’s claim for urban fuel consumption, that is city driving, is 10.1 L/100 km, which is pretty much what you are getting. The claim for extra urban or highway is 5.9 L/100 km, which also accords pretty well with your results, and the combined figure is put at 7.4 L/100 km.
On the basis of what you have reported there isn’t a problem.
Hyundai i30: Is servicing a diesel more expensive than a petrol model?
Diesel-powered cars are more expensive to service than their petrol-engined counterparts. It’s mostly because they need higher quality diesel-specific oils, and better quality filters, such as fuel filters.
Are there any better small cars than the Toyota Corolla?

Hyundai i30: Would a diesel be suitable for Uber use?
Diesels deliver their efficiency benefits best when on the open road, but it would still be more convenient for Uber use because they'd need to be refuelled less often than the petrol. The only thing I'd be concerned about re inner-city use would be the diesel particulate filter. If you only drive around the city, this probably wouldn't give the DPF the chance to cycle itself every now and again, which can lead to very costly repairs. If you do head out onto the motorway occasionally, this wouldn't be an issue. The new i30 is an excellent small hatch though, and I wouldn't hesitate recommending it.
Hyundai i30: Should I buy a Premium or a SR Premium?
Both would be suitable for your use, but the final decision should be based on how much country driving and towing you do. If it's mostly country then I would err towards the diesel, but if it’s more town or line ball I would go for the petrol engine.
