cars, utes

In a recent article, we explained what car depreciation was and delved into the new model Mazda CX-5. If you missed it, you can read it here.

This time, we will be taking a look at the ever popular Hyundai i30 and how it racks up against the market average. This could be really helpful for those either looking specifically to purchase a Hyundai i30 in the near future, or if you’re in the market for a small hatch and currently in the research stage yet to make a decision on which model you want.

And remember, you can help keep the depreciation rate down by taking good care of your car. That is, make sure you get it serviced at the recommended times or kilometre readings, wash it regularly, keep it parked undercover whenever possible, and don’t push it to its limits (too often, at least).

How the Hyundai i30 depreciation measures up against the market average

Canstar advises that the industry average regarding depreciation rates are:

  • 19% after the first year from purchase
  • 15% after the second year
  • Another 15% in the third year

Now let’s work out its first-year depreciation rate. To do this, we determined the base model 2020 Hyundai i30 being the 2-litre petrol with 6-speed manual transmission, then hopped onto to look it up.


Considering its $23,420 price tag new and that the trade-in price guide ranges between $16,900 and $19,200, we can calculate that its first-year depreciation rate is an estimated 18% to 28%.
