Hyundai reveals new i30 ahead of Geneva debut

Hyundai is set to unveil its new i30 estate at the Geneva Motor Show next month.

The five-door Tourer model joins the standard hatchback in the i30 range, which was totally revamped at the end of 2016.

The estate inherits the new hatchback’s aesthetic, including the cascading grille, which is part of the brand’s latest design language.

At the back, however, the extended rear end increases the boot space to 602 litres, while the interior features an eight-inch touchscreen display with connectivity software such as Apple Car Play and Android Auto.

Under the skin, the i30 Tourer is offered with a choice of two petrol engines and one diesel. The 108bhp 1.6-litre diesel is likely to be the favoured unit of those seeking economy, while those looking at petrol options will have the choice of a 1.0-litre powerplant producing 118bhp and a 1.4-litre engine with 136bhp.

“The new-generation i30 Tourer speaks the language of the i30 family in terms of design, and it carries the new Hyundai family identity – the cascading grille,” commented Thomas Bürkle, a chief designer at Hyundai Design Centre Europe.

“The tapering roofline and the dynamic proportions give the Tourer an almost coupé-like silhouette. The sleek and dynamic profile is further emphasised by a rich chrome frame surrounding the side windows,” he continued.

The Geneva Motor Show will open its doors to the public on March 9, following two press preview days.
