Since it’s introduction the Hyundai i30 hatch has been picking up awards as fast as it attracts new fans. Hyundai’s stunning hatchback was voted as the Supreme Winner of the 2009 AA Motoring Excellence Awards. Since then, it has won over 22 international awards for its dynamic driving ability and innovative design. Part of the i30’s irresistible charm is its economy. In the 2010 Energywise Rally, the i30 travelled from Auckland to Franz Joseph glacier on a single tank. This was achieved in the 1.6L diesel model. You also have the choice of 1.6 petrol or 2.0L diesel. Designed in Germany, beautifully engineered and with meticulously finished interior, there’s a lot to like in the Hyundai i30.
