Tourer has gone into production at its factory in Nošovice, Czech Republic, and it will go on sale across Europe soon. Hyundai says that it has engineered the second generation i30 specifically for Europe, and it has already received 57,000 orders for the new car. The i30 is Hyundai's most popular model in Europe, and it is expecting the Tourer model to boost sales even more. 

“The launch of the wagon 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," said Allan Rushforth, Chief Operating Officer at Hyundai Europe.

The i30 Tourer has 528 liters of storage behind the rear seats or 1,642 liters with the rear seats down. The car has received a five-start Euro NCAP score and a 90% score in the child occupant test. Hyundai engineered the i30 Tourer at its center in Rüsselsheim, Germany. It was engineered alongside the standard i30 to give them a coherent design identity. 

Hyundai has not announced prices for the i30 Tourer yet.
