Sales of the award winning New Generation Hyundai i30 are set to grow further as production of the new Hyundai i30 Tourer begins at the company’s plant in Czech Republic. Orders of the New Generation i30 are already approaching 60,000 units just a few months after coming to market, making it Hyundai’s most popular car among European customers in 2012, ahead of the ix35 compact SUV. Hyundai expects the Tourer to boost i30 demand and account for around 30% of the model line’s total sales in Europe.
Allan Rushforth, Senior Vice President and Chief Operating Officer at Hyundai Motor Europe said “the launch of the Tourer is the next phase of the New Generation i30’s introduction to Europe, following the very positive reception for the five-door. It not only brings greater choice for consumers but also is a testament to the quality and importance of the teams at our European design, engineering and manufacturing facilities.”
The Hyundai i30 Tourer retains the characteristics of its hatchback sibling including stylish design, efficiency and driving enjoyment and adds greater load carrying capability. As with all newly-launched Hyundai models, the New Generation i30 comes with Five Year Triple Care, the company’s industry-best assurance package, comprising of five years’ unlimited mileage warranty, five years’ roadside assistance and five years of annual health checks.
