The next generation of the well-known 2018 Hyundai i30 Tourer will come very soon. When we say very soon, we think about the coming 2017 Geneva International Motor Show, because there we can certainly expect its debut. The approaching and new member of a very good i30 family will be very similar to its five-door cousin and we can even expect the addition of elegance and versatility in its body style. Chief Operating Officer at Hyundai Europe, Thomas A. Schmid said that “this model will be developed, designed, tested and manufactured in Europe and that will be Hyundai Motor’s DNA car”. He also said that the i30 is more than just a regular model, but it is also a model consisting of four body types with the remarkable and unique design.
The newly Tourer will be the next body type, and that is something that most of the customers demand. With the Tourer model, all the customers will get elegance, premium materials, and versatility. There is going to be some slight changes compared to others i30 models, but in general, the design language remains the same. The interior will receive some new systems in high-tech departments, and also some new features in safety department.

2018 Hyundai i30 Tourer Redesign
As we mention, the design will remain pretty much the same as in the others i30 model, and that is certainly very good news. The front side of the vehicle is the nicer part, and here we can expect recognizable Cascading Grille from Hyundai. Of course, in the middle, we can expect small Company emblem, while the layout, will be maybe even diamond-shaped. Thanks to the dynamic body style and to the tapering roofline, this model will have an almost coupé-like shape. This dynamic profile will be magnified by a chrome frame that will surround the whole car, windows especially.
The recently developed 2018 Hyundai i30 Tourer will provide attractive look thanks to the LED headlamps and daytime running lights, also LED. Speaking of dimensions, this model will have a length of 4,585 mm (5-door version: 4,340 mm), a width of 1,795 mm, a wheelbase of 2,650 mm (same in the 5-door version), and a height of 1,465 mm (1,475 mm with roof rack).

The interior design of the forthcoming vehicle will just like the exterior design provide so many quality features. First of all, we have to say that sleek design from the outside doesn’t compromise boot space. This wagon will provide 602 liters of space as well as 1,650 liters when the seats are folded. As you can probably notice, this model has one of the biggest boots in the segment. Furthermore, we can even expect additional storage space that will be located underneath the floor and that will have several compartments. When it comes to technology, the new car will get latest connectivity and safety features.
This model will have best-in-class standard active safety systems such as Lane Keeping Assist, Driver Alert, Emergency Braking, High Beam Assist and others. Mentioned Autonomous Emergency Braking will use cameras and it will operate in three stages. First, it will alert the driver acoustically and visually. New Hyundai i30 Tourer 2018 will control the brake and if necessary, it will apply maximum braking force in order to avoid a collision or at least minimize damage. The pedestrian recognition will be an optional feature. When it comes to comfort in the cabin, this model will provide very supportive and comfortable seats with leather upholstery as standard.
