Hyundai i30 – it doesn’t have electric doors.

One of my fellow scribes said the i30 was the best small car ever. That might be pushing it a bit as it has stiff competition from the Subaru Impreza. It is pretty good though. The handling is crisp, the suspension is firm enough to let you know it could handle a bit of the twisty stuff if you so desired, and the sound system is good for a car of its class (better than the Impreza’s). It makes a change from the gigantic Kia Carnival I just had. But, I wish the i30 had electric opening doors. Sigh…I’ve become lazy in just 3 days of door automation bliss.
