Hyundai i30

The introduction of the Hyundai i30 in 2007 formed the genesis of the Hyundai we know and love today, with the small hatchback redefining a brand that traditionally was thought of as cheap and uninspiring.

In North America the i30 is known as the Elantra Touring or Elantra GT, and this third-generation hatch was launched in 2016.

The i30 is Hyundai’s second-cheapest model in terms of entry price, but has a number of variants that increase in equipment and luxury.

Being a small hatch the Hyundai i30 competes against rivals like the Toyota Corolla, Mazda3, Honda Civic, Ford Focus, and others.
