Hyundai i30 is a splendid line-up being designed with the 99bhp and 1.4ltr petrol engine! It is not extremely fast however it remains flexible. Though it has not been taken a test drive yet, the 1.6 design in both 126bhp and 109bhp is grip and punchy on road. It comes with 6 speed gearbox and the automatic option is available on 118bhp 1.6 litre petrol and the 109bhp diesel.
It comes with a supple suspension features while it efficiently copes even in the jagged surfaces, regardless to its speed. Even you could experience the comfort zone in all the tricky bends. Though the body remains lean, it never compromises the grip anytime. It is ultimate in its grip when compared to anything else. It is quite hard and annoying to manage the steering controls as it remains unnervingly obscured when it is straight ahead. It doesn’t make any big difference in the steering control, even while the flexsteer system is integrated.
The Hyundai i30 1.4 litre petrol engine runs smooth even on the rough roads. While the 1.6 diesel car slightly makes noise at the start! It even comes with a gruff edge while it goes beyond 4000rpm. However when the engine is warmed-up, it turns as the ultimate companion indeed. The road noise desolates the calmness and even the tyres grumble badly when riding at low speeds.
Pick any of the diesel cars and you can enjoy the best and cost-effective running costs. Remember, the 1.6 along with the 126bhp results with emissions which are negligible to excuse you from spending the road tax. It is fuel efficient and hence it reduces the costs as well.
