Tony Whitehorn, President and CEO Hyundai Motor UK said, “Previous generation i30 Tourer models accounted for just over 10% of total i30 sales; however our expectations are that New Generation i30 Tourer will achieve much closer to a 20% share.
This increase is driven by a number of factors – as well as the obvious benefits of a comprehensive suite of standard safety equipment and a high specification at all trim levels, New Generation i30 Tourer is also financially well positioned, with S trim level over £1500 less than the previous generation’s starting price.
In addition to a lower-priced entry point, throughout the range there is now only £500 between the Hatch and Tourer, compared with £1500 on the previous generation comparable prices and segment leading amongst current competitor models.”
All New Generation i30 models come with Hyundai’s industry leading 5 Year Unlimited Mileage Warranty, 5 Year Roadside Assistance package, 5 Year Annual Health Check, and 12 Year Anti Corrosion Warranty.
