Ownership Cost Of A Hyundai Kona N vs Hyundai i30N

  • by

This video breaks down the total cost of ownership of a Hyundai Kona N and a Hyundai i30N using my excel spreadsheet template. I calculate how much these cars cost to run based on driving 5,000km, 10,000km and 20,000km a year, including everything from depreciation, servicing, wear and tear items, insurance and registration.

Welcome to my channel my name is dennis in this video i’ll be working out the total cost of ownership of the hyundai kona inn versus the hyundai oi 30 in if i was to drive them 5 000 kilometers 10 000 kilometers or 20 000 laminars a year for five years stick around till the end of the video to see where these two cars come in my value leaderboard now this video was

Requested by ravi in a previous video i did on the i-30 n where i compared it against the the golf gti now before doing research for this video i was expecting that there’d be very little difference in pricing but i was surprised there actually was um for example one was to in replacing the braking components the itar the end will cost me an extra one thousand

Two hundred and sixty eight dollars over the corner and now let’s jump onto the computer and stack one over the figures if you’re new to my channel i’ll quickly go over my spreadsheet now step one we’ve got card appreciation running costs and finance step two we got fixed cost and step three we got dimensions weight and performance now starting off at step one

The kona n is drinking an extra you know half a liter per hundred kilometers they both cost the exact same to buy from new and i’m depreciating them both by the exact same amount as well now currently a four-year-old i3n with similar kilometers and specs is selling for around the forty thousand dollar mark i’m forecasting they should easily be selling for you know

Thirty five thousand in another year we’re saying that we own the vehicles for five years and we’re doing ten thousand kilometers a year forecasted maintenance costs over the life vehicle leaving that blank because they’re both covered under the five-year manufacturer warranty moving on to the servicing i’m getting an average cost per service over 10 services now

The kona inn actually is you know on average six dollars cheaper per service over the i-30 yen they’re both have to be done every 10 000 kilometers or 12 months whichever occurs first now for the purpose of this video i’m replacing everything like for like where in reality i must admit i’d be looking for cheaper tires because perelli p zeros they don’t come cheap

This is another area that i was actually quite surprised where there’s such a big price gap and let me explain bull cars have got per lep p0 tires so the i-30 n is wearing 235’s by 35 and a radius of 19 inch where the corner in is running 235’s by 40 and 19 inch so that five mil difference will set you back an extra 140 dollars for a set of two tires now moving on

To the braking components i won’t go through all the braking costs here but i’ll just quickly jump over to my other excel spreadsheet where i’ll show you the breakdown of the costs so and i charge 165 dollars per hour for labor i’m allowing one hour to replace the pads and two hours to replace the discs this is the price of the components here’s my total labor cost

And here are them combined so you can see that the corner ends brake pads are a lot cheaper than the eye 30 ends and the front discs are the exact same but that’s the only thing that that it shares with the the i30n i still can’t get over how expensive the brake pads are on the i30n okay let’s jump back over to the the main spreadsheet if you’re enjoying this video

Please give me a like this will help my video be recommended to more people on youtube thank you very much both cars you have to put 95 octane fuel into it currently that’s costing 1.98 centiliter finance we’re leaving this blank for now we’ll come back to it later in the video moving on to step two which is fixed cost so registration they’re both four-cylinder and

The insurance is slightly cheaper in the corner over the i-30 and overall you’re paying an extra 55.74 a year in a fixed cost department moving on to step three dimensions weight and performance now this is no implication on the cost of the vehicle but i’ll go through a few of the interesting facts and they’re pretty much the same in every department except when

It comes to um the size so the hyundai is 125 mil longer which is that for everyone in america the corner is five mil wider which is absolutely next to nothing and the height the hyundai i30 is 120 mil lower the kona is 28 kilos heavier than the i30n the moment that we’ve all been winning for the total cost of ownership over five years doing ten thousand kilometers

A year is drumroll forty three thousand six hundred and eighty eight dollars and twenty six cent for the corner in and the i-30 n will set me back 43 548.89 so very close there’s very little in it over the five years only 139 down here we’ve got an a summary of all the costs so we see that you’re paying more and fuel for the corner in and more on tires but then

It’s cheaper in the servicing and braking components and total fixed costs so that’s how it recouped some of its losses there now let’s say we drive five thousand kilometers a year now the corner in is slightly cheaper and now let’s say we do 20 000 kilometers a year now the i-30 n is 557.43 cheaper now before i move on to the finance i’d like to let you know

About a series that i’ve been working on and by far hot hatches have been the best performing videos on my channel so i’ve decided to do a series working out which is the cheapest hot hatch to own over five years doing 13 000 kilometers a year this is the average distance that we travel here in australia let me know in the comment section below which cars you would

Like to include in the series let’s try and keep the the power output above 155 kilowatts are you know 110 brake horsepower if this is something that you’re interested in and please subscribe to my channel and hit the bell notification next that way you won’t miss out on the upcoming videos now let’s move on to finance we’ll put this back to 10. we’re saying that

We’re getting 100 finance so zero down payment over five years and that works out being 261.15 both cars cost the exact same amount oh so over the course of the loan i’ll end up paying you know 15 132 dollars on interest and this is the average amount of money that will be coming out of my pocket each week not including the sale of the vehicle each video that

I do takes anywhere from 10 to 12 hours to complete and if you’d like to keep me caffeinated so that i can create more videos like this one you can now buy me a coffee by clicking on the below link if you end up buying me a coffee i’ll thank you in my next video that i upload let’s see where these two cars come in my value leaderboard bear in mind i’m leaving out

Finance and opportunity costs and i’m saying that we’re driving the vehicles 13 000 kilometers a year which like i mentioned earlier is the average distance that we travel here in australia so we see the hyundai 30 n is currently sitting in 13 position right behind the ford ranger wild track v6 and the hyundai corner n is sitting in 15 position right behind the

Toyota gr corolla if you’d like a closer look at any car in particular by all means check out their video thank you for watching my video hope to see you all again soon bye for now
