New Hyundai i30 Hatchback & Tourer Overview
Hyundai i30 5 Year Unlimited Mileage Warranty
The Hyundai i30 is one of the most capable cars in the small family class. It has therefore won numerous titles - such as Best Value Hatchback in the Towcar Awards 2012 – and was a Car of the Year finalist in 2013. The Hyundai i30 Hatchback is available with either three or five doors, has sure-footed handling, sensible running costs, stylish looks and in top of the range form a fantastic equipment specification. All for £14,000 to £22,925. The Tourer (estate) version shares these strengths but also has a 528-litre cargo capacity. This, pleasingly, can be increased to 1,642-litres by folding the rear seats flat which is very large for the class. Prices range from £16,300 to £24,025. Furthermore, every trim is backed-up by the 5 Year Triple Care Unlimited Mileage Warranty that includes roadside assistance and annual health checks. The range is therefore popular with consumers, so the manufacturer has expanded its European production capability to five-hundred thousand units per-year. The Assan Otomotive Sanayi Plant in Turkey - which opened in the late nineties with an annual capacity of sixty-thousand units - is therefore now capable of producing two-hundred thousand following its upgrade. This coexists with the Czech Republic site that can produce three-hundred thousand per-year.
Hyundai's New Range Of Vehicles
Hyundai's factories produce a wide range of capable vehicles. Highlights - excluding the i30 Hatchback/Tourer - include the Hyundai i10 1.0 Blue. Why? Because this five-door city car is fantastic value for money and environmentally friendly. For £9,345, it therefore averages 67.3mpg which rises to 74.3mpg on the extra-urban cycle. Even through town it manages 56.5mpg. Carbon emission are therefore low, so it can be taxed for free both in year one and thereafter (at today's rates). These characteristics complement the class-competitive 225-litre boot, the excellent visibility, and the respectable equipment specification that includes air-conditioning and electric front windows. Family motorists, however, might prefer the Hyundai i40 Tourer Premium SE Automatic. This top of the range estate car feels luxurious thanks to its leather upholstery, heated steering wheel, electric heated seats (with memory) and powered tailgate. It also has a far larger cargo capacity than most of its rivals in this large family class. Prices start at £28,675. Alternatively, the Hyundai Santa Fe 2.2 CRDi Premium SE Automatic is a top of the range four-wheel-drive priced from £34,875. This workhorse best suits those who want to tow significant loads and conquer challenging terrain such as snow/ice covered roads. The Santa Fe also has seven seats, a generous equipment specification, and aggressive looks.
