The Hyundai i30 is an excellent all-rounder and a good alternative to more mainstream European and Japanese models. The Hyundai i30 Estate builds on this with a good sized boot, but there's more to it than just load-lugging.

Six airbags (twin front, side and curtain airbags) come as standard as well as electronic stability control, which ticks all the boxes in terms of Hyundai i30 Estate safety levels. In the Euro NCAP crash tests, the hatchback version of the i30 originally scored four stars out of five for adult occupant protection but it was re-tested after Hyundai made some changes and as a result was awarded the full five stars

We haven't heard of any major problems. Hyundai i30 Estate reliability concerns will be offset by that bumper-to-bumper warranty for five years with no mileage restriction.
