You can now save up to 40 per cent off a brand new Hyundai i30. Here's how
31 January 2012

The current Hyundai i30 is at the end of its life cycle, replaced this month by the all-new, more distinctive and more refined version. It’ll also bring the fight to the Ford Focus with more potency than ever before. For that reason, you’ll be pleased to hear that you can save a massive 40 per cent off the price of a current i30 petrol model.

For this remarkable offer, drivethedeal.com is the company to contact. A pre-registered 1.6-litre automatic estate, for example, will set you back just £10,475. That’s a huge reduction of £7000 from the list price. Similarly, a hatchback version in the same guise comes in at a fiver under £10k, which represents an appealing £6480 off.

But don’t think that the four-year-old i30 isn’t a good car. When we tested the 1.4-litre petrol version in 2007, we gave it a solid four-star rating for its excellent ride quality, spacious interior and high level of standard equipment.

Big deals on diesels are harder to come by. Of the dealers we contacted, the best saving we tracked down was at Richmond Hyundai in Portsmouth. It has currently got a 1.6 CRDI in Classic spec on offer for £10,995, saving you a respectable £4100. Call 023 9222 1441 for more details.

If it’s a cheap leasing deal you’re after, Hippo Vehicle Solutions has the 1.4-litre Classic i30 hatchback on offer for a rock-bottom £155 a month over four years, with a £495 deposit. Despite being the entry-level model, standard kit includes air-con, MP3 connectivity and six airbags. For more information, 0845 838 3661 is the number to call.

For fuss-free, relatively cheap and reliable motoring you can do a lot worse.

Perhaps, but at least it's for something good.

What does that say for the future residual values of Hyundais?

I'd estimate that's just taken £2000 off the price of any nearly new i30 on Autotrader.

Do they (Hyundai) not see that this is also likely to really annoy their dealers as well, devaluing their stock.

 

 

It's all about the twisties........

This is a weird thread. It reminds me of those "paid for presentations" you get on early morning telly. Adverts trying to appear like a consumer programme.

Here we have an advert complete with contact details purporting to be an article. I don't know who Alex Kersten is, but I wonder if there's a shiny new Hyundai on his drive.

Yet another example of the British motorist being ripped off that's what this is. When I was visiting Mummy at Christmas in Sydney 2.0 litre petrol autos with satnav were being advertised everywhere at $18990 - a bit over 7 thousand quid.

Please tell us where you can get an exchange rate, Australian dollars to GBP's, that good.

A quick look on Google confirms that $18990 = £12,845 or so nowadays. £1 = $1.477 Australian.

I fail to see what you are all complaining about, the article was useful to inform us that you can buy a run out i30 for a big discount and where from. I've yet to see any mainstream manufacturer not give discounts for their end of production models as a new model is about to enter the showroom.

For anyone seeking to buy a new car with £10k or so available the article was helpful.
