2013 Hyundai i30 Active 1.6 CRDi turbo diesel
Serious amount of car for the money
Nothing so far.
Lovely relaxing car to drive. Very smooth. Auto box delivers very smoothly on changes. The dual clutch option is nice to have, but 99% of my driving is in full auto. My only gripe would be that there is a slight delay between pressing the accelerator and getting a response. Slight, but annoying. My previous car was a 2.0 D4D Toyota Corolla and it had instant response and strong delivery of power over a very wide rev range.
Back to the Hyundai. No squeaks, rattles or creaks. Everything still works. Love the Bluetooth connectivity and the MP3 player. The steering has 3 levels of resistance to suit driving style. Parking sensors are wonderful and I love the daytime running lights. Passenger cabin could do with more practical and economic use of storage space. There are quite a few wasted spaces that could have been better utilised. Inside the top of the centre arm rest, for one. Some areas in and around the dashboard could also be made available.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
