The estate model ups the i30 hatchback’s luggage space by exactly 150 litres to 528 litres with the rear seats up and to 1642 litres from 1316 litres with the seats folded flat.
Although not confirmed, expect the i30’s engine line-up to be carried over to the estate model. These include the entry-level 1.4-litre petrol with 98bhp, the 89bhp 1.4-litre CRDi and the 1.6-litre CRDi available in 109 or 126bhp flavours.
UK availability of the Hyundai i30 Tourer is yet to be revealed, but production of the new model has begun at the firm’s Czech Republic factory. The Hyundai ix35 and ix20 are also produced at this plant.
Hyundai also remains tight-lipped about pricing. As a guide, the Hyundai i40 Tourer adds a £1250 premium over the four-door saloon car so an estimated entry-level price of £15,300 for the i30 estate can be expected.
