The previous-generation Hyundai i30 is a family hatchback like the Ford Focus or Vauxhall Astra. With a spacious interior that includes plenty of storage, it’s well suited for the demands of family life. You can choose between the five-door i30 or the three-door i30 Turbo.

To make sure that it’s the right size for your garage, driveway or parking space, we’ve listed its full dimensions below, including those for the interior and boot. You’ll also find details of towing limits and fuel tank capacity. For more details, see the used Hyundai i30 buying guide.

Hyundai i30 dimensions: exterior

The i30 sits right in the middle of the hatchback market when it comes to its dimensions: its length, width and height could barely be more average. That’s not a bad thing for drivers who should find that the i30 is slim enough to drive comfortably on narrow roads and through roadworks on reduced-width lanes. It’s short enough to fit into parking spaces on a busy street.

The car’s dimensions still allow for a roomy interior, though. That’s partly thanks to a reasonable wheelbase. This is the distance between the front and rear wheels and the bigger it is, the more space you’ll usually find inside. The figures for the i30 and i30 Turbo are identical.

Hyundai i30 boot space

A boot capacity of around 380 litres is fairly standard for a family car, and the Hyundai hits that mark. The luggage area has fairly straight edges, which makes it easier to fit bulky loads in the back, and the seats fold down to create a decent 1,316-litre space.

Hyundai i30 dimensions: interior

Tall drivers can buy the i30 with confidence, as it has more headroom than most of its rivals. It feels spacious, with enough room for three adults in the back, and a relatively flat floor, so there is space for all of their legs.

Hyundai i30 towing capacity

Larger, heavier cars are best for towing, so few i30s are likely to be pulling a trailer or caravan. However, the Hyundai can pull up to 1500kg.

It’s worth noting that the Camping and Caravan Club recommend that vehicles only pull a maximum of 85% of their kerbweight (see below), which is lower than the i30’s official limits.

Hyundai i30 weight

A vehicle’s kerbweight includes an almost-full fuel tank, as well as a driver and some luggage. The i30 weighs well over a tonne, but that’s normal for modern cars, with sophisticated crash protection.

Hyundai i30 fuel tank capacity

Buy the most efficient version - the i30 1.6 CRDi Blue Drive 110PS - and you may be able to go 750 miles between fill-ups, thanks to impressive fuel economy and the 53-litre fuel tank. Unfortunately, you can’t expect anything like that with the less-efficient petrol-powered cars, some of which will struggle to cover 400 miles on a single tank.

Hyundai i30 turning circle

While most family hatchbacks need an 11 metre space to turn completely around in one manoeuvre, the i30 needs just 10.6m. It might not sound like a big difference, but in narrow streets, every centimetre can make the difference between a smooth three-point turn or a convoluted shuffling backwards and forwards.
