Following the arrival of the all-new i30 hatch, Hyundai has revealed its new i30 Tourer estate
This is the new Hyundai i30 Tourer, which has been unveiled ahead of its public debut at the Geneva Motor Show.
The estate version of the latest i30, it comes in at 245mm longer than the recently launched hatchback, but shares the same wheelbase. It gets Hyundai’s latest front grille and what looks like a tapering roofline, while full LED headlights and LED daytime running lights add a little flair.
A larger rear overhang delivers a decent-sized boot, at 602 litres with the rear seats in place and 1,650 with them folded down. Both of these capacities trump the loadbay of the Vauxhall Astra Sports Tourer, which offers 540 and 1,630 litres.
In terms of engines, Hyundai has confirmed three options – two petrols and a diesel, all three of which are turbocharged. The entry-level petrol powerplant is a 1.0-litre three-cylinder turbo producing 118bhp, which sits below a larger 1.4-litre four-cylinder turbo with 138bhp. Diesel customers are offered a 1.6-litre turbo unit good for 109bhp.
No performance figures have been revealed, but Hyundai claims the cleanest option will be capable of 78.5mpg with CO2 emissions of 95g/km. These values are tentative for now though and we’ll get further information soon.
A six-speed manual is likely to be the standard transmission, a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic should be offered with certain powerplants.
Cabin technology is carried over from the new hatchback, and the i30 Tourer will be available with a five-inch or eight-inch floating infotainment touchscreen. Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and Hyundai LIVE services are offered with the eight-inch screen, while the smaller five-inch package comes with a rear-view camera and Bluetooth connectivity as standard.
Hyundai has pitched safety assists as a major part of the package too. Autonomous emergency braking, high-beam assist, lane keep assist and a driver attention alert function make the cut.
Hyundai has not issued prices, but the new i30 Tourer should stay broadly in line with the figures charged for the previous generation model, so we’d expect them to start from around £19,000. It’s expected on sale by late summer.
