Hyundai i30 Tourer estate

The i30 Tourer is Hyundai's best-value estate car and is designed to take on family friendly rivals like the Volkswagen Golf estate and Ford Focus estate. Based on the 2012 CarBuyer Car of the Year – the i30 hatchback – the Tourer is 185mm longer and has a 528-litre boot. With the rear seats folded there's 1,642 litres of luggage space. Modern exterior design and a top-quality interior are big pluses, while Hyundai's five-year warranty is another key selling point. You can choose between a 118bhp petrol engine or Hyundai's 1.6-litre CRDi diesel, with either 109bhp or 126bhp output. The range is made up of Classic, Active, Style and Style Nav versions, with prices starting at just over £16,000 and rising to more than £21,000. Standard equipment is generous and running costs are low across the range.
