Hyundai i30 N interior
The Hyundai i30 N might make all the right noises outside, but inside it’s a little bit plain and doesn’t feel as well put together as some alternatives.
All that marks the Hyundai i30 N out from the standard i30 is its padded sport seats and sporty driving mode buttons on the steering wheel. It also doesn’t feel as special or as well-built as a Volkswagen Golf GTI’s cabin.
Things are slightly better if you go for the more expensive Performance model over the standard i30 N, because it comes with half-and-half leather and suede seats, although it’s faux rather than the real deal.

All Hyundai i30 Ns come with a sharper 8-inch display and satellite navigation as standard. The screen sits in a plastic bezel and gets a number of large, easy-to-reach shortcut buttons to help you jump between key features on the move.
The menus are fairly logical too, and it doesn’t take long to enter a destination or add a waypoint using the standard sat-nav system. The screen’s nice and responsive, but you can’t pinch to zoom in and out on the map – you have to use the buttons on the steering wheel instead.
On both models you can use your smartphone’s navigation and music streaming apps through the i30’s built-in display using Android Auto and Apple CarPlay mirroring systems.
Unfortunately, you can’t upgrade the Hyundai i30’s standard six-speaker stereo to any big-name brand item but it’s still just about loud and bassy enough for most music.
