On sale now in the UK the new i30 Tourer can go from the city to the mountains. As a versatile low-slung reincarnated wagon, the i30 Tourer joins the i30 family adding a sophisticated spacious cabin and efficient drivetrain. Designed in Hyundai Motor Europe’s Technical Centre in Rüsselsheim, produced in Nošovice, Czech Republic, and tested on the Nürburgring, the third generation i30 family is built on the infrastructure that Hyundai Motor has developed over the last 25 years in Europe. It aims to continue the success of the two previous generations of i30, which have sold more than 800,000 cars in Europe since 2008.
“The New Generation i30 Tourer speaks the language of the i30 family in terms of design, and it carries the new Hyundai family identity – the Cascading Grille,” explains Thomas Bürkle, Chief Designer at Hyundai Design Centre Europe. “The tapering roofline and the dynamic proportions give the Tourer an almost coupé-like silhouette. The sleek and dynamic profile is further emphasized by a rich chrome frame surrounding the side windows.” The new-age wagon is 180 inches long with a 104 inch wheelbase with 21 cu. ft of cargo space with the 2nd row down and 58 cu. ft of cargo room with the 2nd row folded.
The i30 Tourer has planted stance with full-LED headlamps and the vertical LED daytime running lights. The rigid lightweight whip is made with 53 % Advanced High Strength Steel.
The i30 Wagon offers customers a spacious interior with a horizontal layout and free floating screen. The eight-inch touch screen of the new generation navigation system features Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and LIVE Services. A wireless charging system for smartphones with the Qi standard is available. Customers can choose between two audio options, including the audio system with a five-inch capacitive LCD touch screen with integrated dynamic rear-view camera, Bluetooth connectivity and My Music functionality.
Versatility is further enhanced by the additional storage space beneath the boot floor with several compartments.
The Tourer is available with Hyundai’s all-new turbocharged 4-cylinder petrol engine as well as the 1.4 T-GDI with 138 horsepower and the new 3-cylinder 1.0 T-GDI with 118 horsepower. A 1.6-litre turbo diesel engine with 108 horsepower is also available. The engineers of Hyundai Motor Europe’s Technical Centre in Germany enhanced the driving dynamics of the New Generation i30 with rigorous testing throughout Europe and on the famous Nürburgring Nordschleife.
The i30 has an impressive active safety suite with Autonomous Emergency Braking, Driver Attention Alert, High Beam Assist and Lane Keeping Assist System standard.
