The second generation of the 2012 Hyundai i30 to continue the successful path of its predecessor. In our test, we tell, whether this can succeed.

The first generation of Hyundai i30 would provided for a full order book, with the second generation Hyundai to expand its position in the compact segment now on.

The new i30 is presenting their complete trust in the new design style of Hyundai, the flowing lines of the "Fluidic Sculpture" design the compact Koreans are very good and let him not only very dynamic, but also have high quality.

For our test we have chosen the Hyundai i30 with the 90 hp diesel engine in the top features "premium". A combination that combines perfectly comfortable traveling with frugal fuel consumption. Factory-equipped with seven airbags, ABS, ESP, 2-zone automatic climate control, electrically adjustable, heated and foldable exterior mirrors, a sliding front center armrest, cruise control, audio system with CD and MP3 playback control as well as USB / iPod, and Aux connection, heated seats for driver and front passenger, LED daytime running lights, fog lights, Bluetooth hands-free kit and a rear parking aid.

In addition, our test vehicle still drenched with a parking aid front, 16 "alloy wheels, metallic paint, supervision fittings with TFT screen, a full spare wheel and the Blue Drive ISG start / stop system.

As modern as the exterior looks of the i30 is so modern it also goes further in the interior. The landscape is fitting in a sporty design and is equipped with high quality materials. The mix of soft plastic and looks very durable.

The Hyundai i30 also shines with good ergonomics, all the levers and buttons are easily accessible, and the high positioning of radio and climate control, including large buttons, is also successful. Many trays and cup holders are also positive on how good the available space in the i30. Passengers of both series can look forward to a class for this generous space, and the trunk volume is impressive. With 376-1316 liters, the luggage compartment is sized large enough, and the rear seats can be folded down easily.

The interior of the 430 cm-long Korean may therefore have to convince the entire length, the question remains whether one of the weakest in the diesel Hyundai i30 range will also suffice. Up front, we can say that the engine does its work very quietly. Even after a cold start and at high speeds it is due to the excellent sound insulation in the interior always pleasantly quiet.

The performance of the 1.4-liter diesel engine is 90 hp (66 kW) with peak torque of 220 Nm 1500-2750 rev / min are available. The i30 is here already from low revs on the gas pedal. Nevertheless, you realize pretty quickly that the diesel has 90 hp with the 1.4-ton i30 is not necessarily an easy task. Pass for the sprint from 0 to 100 km / h 13.5 seconds, top speed is 170 km / h

This is of course perfectly adequate, and the good noise reduction to get even on long trips along well with the diesel. Anyone who relies more on athleticism, but should definitely take the more powerful diesel versions of i30 (110 and 128 hp) in the eye.

Chassis and suspension offer that is quite a sporty touch, while the basic design is more toward comfort. Even gross irregularities are filtered out perfectly, and if you did not know that you are traveling in a compact car, it would also certainly tap a large touring sedan when it comes to ride comfort.

The light steering and very easy-shift 6-speed manual gearbox perfectly matched to the Hyundai i30. The correct switching time you get via the well-to-read LCD screen displays in the dashboard, so you should be even more economical way.

In terms of consumption, the smallest diesel namely score high. At the factory-stated 4.0-liter, although we had not approached, with 4.8 liters to get well faster at driving but ends meet.

Not quite as good at the Hyundai i30 is the panoramic view that is affected by the rising window line to the rear a bit. The PDC can handle this small shortcoming but also perfect to park and so is the rear of the vehicle perfectly without outside contact.
