Fuel economy

A more stringent standard for fuel economy (WLTP) was introduced from September 2017, and this model was not required to undergo that test. Its fuel economy measured under the previous test system was 40 - 62 mpg. However these figures are less likely to be achievable in real world driving and so should never be compared to another car's mpg which was measured under the newer, more realistic WLTP system.

The i30 estate is good value, with steady depreciation, while Hyundai i30 Estate running costs are generally low, particularly with the diesel engine. Low emission also mean low annual road tax costs, and servicing costs will also be modest.

The petrol Hyundai i30 Estate emissions of 152g/km with the manual gearbox don’t read particularly well, while the diesel version manages 128g/km. These results, however, are competitive with other models in this class and generation but the automatic versions with their less efficient four-speed gearboxes have higher emissions so avoid them.

We haven’t heard of any major problems. Hyundai i30 Estate reliability concerns will be offset by that bumper-to-bumper warranty for five years with no mileage restriction.
