Hyundai begins production of the I30 Tourer

The production of the new generation i30 Tourer is scheduled to start at Hyundai's Czech factory. Things seem to be looking good for the Czech-built wagon as the five-door mode has already registered a success of 57,000 orders in Europe. According to Hyundai, the new model will boost sales of the i30 range by about a third. Providing a loading bay that can reach a massive 1,642 liters with the seats folded flat, the i30 Tourer also features a 528 liter boot and offers the same engine options as the hatchback. Allan Rushforth, Senior Vice President and Chief Operating Officer at Hyundai Motor Europe, stated that the launch of the Tourer was the next phase of the new generation i30's introduction to Europe, following the positive reception for the five-door, bringing greater choice for consumers together with a testament to the quality and importance of the teams at their European design, engineering and manufacturing facilities.
