i30 Tourer prices to start just over £16,000New Hyundai estate - £1,000 less than Ford Focus

27 June 2012

Hyundai has confirmed pricing and specification for its i30 Tourer, and it looks like great value.

The firm’s rival to the Ford Focus estate goes on sale in the UK at the end of July, with prices starting from £16,195 - that's more than £1,000 cheaper than the entry-level Focus estate model.

Hyundai i30 Tourer gets four trim levels

All i30 Tourer models cost £1,100 more than the equivalent five-door i30 hatchback. It will be available in four trim levels: Classic, Active, Style and Style Nav.

The entry-level Classic costs £16,195 and boasts strong standard equipment levels, including Bluetooth with voice recognition and air conditioning.

Upgrading to Active trim costs £1,100 and adds cruise control, rear parking sensors and alloy wheels, while the £20,095 Style model comes with climate control, automatic headlights and wipers and front parking sensors.

Prices for the range-topping Style Nav model start at £21,095. It comes with satellite navigation and a rear view camera. 

Hyundai 1.6 petrol and turbodiesel engines

Engine choices for the new estate comprise one petrol and two turbodiesels.

The 118bhp 1.6-litre petrol – only available in Classic and Active trim – emits a claimed 150g/km CO2 meaning £135 car tax (VED). That's not as good as the comparable Ford Focus 1.6 estate, which emits 117g/km CO2, equating to £30 car tax (VED).

The 110bhp 1.6-litre turbodiesel’s environmental credentials are better, though. Returning a claimed 67.3mpg combined, with 110g/km CO2 emissions – meaning £20 car tax (VED) – the Hyundai is on a par with its rivals. A more powerful 128bhp 1.6 diesel will also be available.
