In the i30 Tourer, Hyundai has refined the estate class by creating an intelligent and practical model that also impresses with a stylish design. The car meets the needs of the most active motorist completely, and returns satisfying economy no matter where your travels take you.
The i30 Tourer shares a contemporary exterior look with its hatchback sibling, retaining the narrowed headlamps and large front grille finished with a body-coloured horizontal bar. Alloy wheels come with all but the entry level model, and each arrives with a rear spoiler plus roof rails.
The cabin continues on the same theme, coupling functional details with attractive design elements. Durable cloth seats – or leather with top-end Premium – are fully adjustable, and place you opposite an ergonomically-shaped centre stack. Gloss black and alloy effect accents finish the dashboard superbly, and heighten the experience for those in the front. At the back there's plenty of room to relax in, with up to 1,642 litres of storage space available when the rear bench is folded.
There's plenty to keep you connected when on the move, including the Bluetooth® interface with voice recognition – fitted as standard. It's found alongside a radio/CD player boasting USB and AUX connectivity, with audio and telephone controls fitted to the wheel for safe and quick access. Every model except Classic gets rear parking sensors, while a parking camera is included at no extra cost on Style Nav and Premium examples.
The cutting-edge technology included by Hyundai in the i30 Tourer also makes its way under the bonnet, where a choice of 1.6-litre petrol or diesel engines is offered. Opt for the 108bhp CRDi diesel if clean performance is a priority, as the unit emits just 110g/km of CO2. Up to 67.3mpg combined is also returned thanks to Blue Drive technology, which includes smart technologies design to lower emissions and fuel consumption.
Safety is another strength of the i30 Tourer, and the likes of Electronic Stability Programme (ESP), Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) with Electronic Brakeforce Distribution (EBD), and Emergency Stop Signalling (ESS) help you to avoid accidents. Front, front side and curtain airbags protect in the event of a collision, as do ISOFIX child seat anchor points.
