The Hyundai i30 was the fourth largest selling car in Australia in 2014 and the 2015 model looks set to repeat that performance, or even beat it.
AutoChic tested the i30 Accent and we were pretty darn happy with it. It’s got all the new small car details you’d expect, including a 1.8 litre petrol engine, six speed auto, five inch touch screen with reversing camera and a five year unlimited kilometre warranty.
While function is important in every car, it’s the style that really draws us in, and this baby didn’t disappoint. There’s sleek new European Styling, which gives it a totally luxurious and glamorous feel and its silhouette is sleek and sporty, so it’s a dream to step in and out of.
Performance and Handling Never before has the adjective, “smooth” been so appropriate. The engine revs easily and seems quite powerful, performing beautifully in the city as well as on the open road. We really put it through its paces on some windy National Park roads and it proved to have precise and responsive steering and really effective brakes, which performed perfectly in all conditions.
