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 41 - 78 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.

Affordability is one of the key factors for buyers when they choose an i30. The five-year unlimited mileage warranty is also a big draw. Servicing tends to be affordable and that warranty should give you peace of mind. Higher mileage drivers should appreciate the 74.3mpg that’s potentially possible with the 108bhp 1.6-litre diesel Blue Drive.

Do your bit to save the planet and pick the 108bhp 1.6-litre diesel Blue Drive. It emits 97g/km of CO2 emissions. With a claimed 74.3mpg average, it could cover up to 890 miles between fill-ups.

Hyundai has so much faith in its cars that it gives a five-year unlimited mileage warranty. The previous generation of the i30 was largely problem-free and we expect this generation to be just as well built if not better.
