Hyundai’s new i30 Tourer will be priced between £16,195 and £21,395 when it goes on sale on July 23.
Following on from the new i30 hatchback which launched in March, the i30 Tourer is the fifth new model that Hyundai has launched in the UK this year. The brand will be launching eigh new models in total this year and is hoping the raft of new product will help it to maintain sales after its boost from the scrappage scheme.
The tourer adds greater load-carrying capability, measuring 185mm longer than its hatchback sibling and offering 150 litres of additional luggage space with the seats up to 528-litres and 326 litres extra with the seats down.
There is a choice of two engines in the range with customers able to choose either the 118bhp petrol unit or alternatively the 1.6 CRDi diesel unit, in the form of a 108bhp or a higher-powered 126bhp variant. Both engines are coupled to a six-speed manual or automatic transmission.
Hyundai’s Blue Drive technologies come on all 1.6 CRDi manual models as standard and feature Intelligent Stop & Go Technology. Versus the outgoing Comfort 1.6 CRDi 113bhp i30 estate, the i30 Tourer Active 1.6 CRDi 108bhp Blue Drive is 12% more fuel efficient than its predecessor – returning 67.3mpg– while emitting 11% less CO2 at 110g/km.
The i30 Tourer mirrors the hatchback’s standard specification. Four trim levels are available starting with Classic, which comes standard with Bluetooth connectivity and voice recognition, multi-function steering wheel and air conditioning. Body coloured door handles and mirrors are standard on the entry level trim along with LED daytime running lights.
Active trim starts at £17,295 and adds alloy wheels, cruise control with speed limiter, rear parking sensors, electric rear windows and leather steering wheel and gear knob.
Customers wanting additional luxury features can choose Style with dual zone climate control, automatic headlights and front windscreen wipers, front parking sensors and electrically folding door mirrors. Prices for Style models start at £20,095.
The range-topping Style Nav model adds touchscreen navigation plus a rear view parking camera for a £1,000 premium over the Style trim, beginning at £21,095.
Two option packs are available. The first is the Convenience Pack (costing £750), which features keyless entry, engine start/stop button, chrome exterior door handles with illumination, puddle lamps and automatically folding door mirrors.
The Individual Pack (costing £1,000) features leather upholstery, heated front seats plus the supervision cluster with LCD Colour Display. A panoramic sunroof (costing £950) can also be specified on the i30 Tourer. This option plus the Convenience and Individual packs are available on Style and Style Nav.
Like all Hyundais, the i30 Tourer comes with five year triple care warranty and the option of a £299 service plan to cover servicing costs for three-years/30,000-miles.
Tony Whitehorn, Hyundai Motor UK president and CEO, said: “The new i30 Tourer will help grow Hyundai’s presence in the C-segment.
“The i30 Tourer is able to meet the demands of both retail and fleet customers as it offers space and versatility along with a range of clean and fuel efficient engines. Running costs are also substantially lower, not only compared with the outgoing i30 estate, but with key competitors too.
“Owners benefit from improvements to fuel economy and emissions plus VED and Benefit in Kind and some of the lowest insurance ratings in class.”
