Hyundai i30 Tourer enters production

The Hyundai i30 - CarBuyer’s Car of the Year, will soon be available as a Tourer estate.

The Hyundai i30 Tourer estate will be made at the company’s plant in Nošovice, Czech Republic.

The new estate model is based on the existing five-door i30 hatchback - CarBuyer’s 2012 Car of the Year, adding a greater load-carrying capacity. The i30 Tourer offers 528 litres of load space, growing to 1,642 litres with the rear seats folded.

The i30 Tourer will rival the Volkswagen Golf estate and the Ford Focus estate, when it goes on sale later in the summer.

Hyundai has received almost 60,000 orders for the new i30 since its launch, making it the brand’s most popular car among European customers in 2012, ahead of the Hyundai ix35. It also achieved a five-star Euro NCAP rating, including a 90 per cent score for child occupants.

The new Tourer is expected to account for around 30 per cent of the model’s sales, and will come with Hyundai’s Five Year Triple Care warranty.

Full UK prices and specifications will be announced nearer to launch.
