The Hyundai i30 Estate CRDi Comfort

The Hyundai i30 Estate CRDi Comfort's weakness is actually its greatest strength.

The Hyundai i30 Estate CRDi Comfort's weakness is actually its greatest strength. We refer to the styling, which could reasonably be described as rather anonymous. That is great news. I have known people with extremely flash cars. These stand-out like a stripper on daytime television and attract unwanted attention. I have seen a crowd gather around a Jaguar XJR, seen someone punch the bonnet of a Mercedes-Benz S-Class, and returned to a convertible to find it filled with rubbish. Not the Hyundai i30, though. Very few people notice it; those who do are rarely jealous - so chances are nobody will hurt this load- lugger.

But here comes the killer point. Despite blending into the background, the Hyundai i30 Estate CRDi Comfort is a capable workhorse. Its cargo capacity is 415-litres, for starters, increasing to a fairly respectable 1,395-litres with the rear seats folded flat. It also has composed handling, a five-year warranty, and plenty of toys. Standard features include the: electronic stability programme, air-con, four electric windows, and MP3 playback. The i30 has decent performance too. Expect to hit 62mph in 11.7 seconds and to average a pleasing 60.1mpg. So, it is a capable car that has a fair chance of being ignored by crooks.
