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.
