For people who love Hyundai’s i30 small family car but need more space and practicality, here is good news for you: the next generation of the Hyundai i30 Tourer (also called Hyundai i30 Wagon) will be soon arriving at dealerships as the 2017 model.

But already, Hyundai has divulged some details about the 2017 i30 Tourer that it thinks would help build up interest for the small family wagon.

When the roof rack is specified, the overall height increases by 10 mm to 1,475 mm.

Barely a month before its official debut, Hyundai gave everyone a taste of what’s to come with the 2017 Hyundai i30 Wagon. Despite what little was shown, it did not disappoint as the general consensus is that the boot capacity of this latest offering is expected to be greater than the previous model.

This newest version is the third generation of this family hauler and looking at its side, it’s apparent that the roofline has been extended and the rear end redesigned. No wonder Hyundai can easily say that the capacity of the trunk is indeed larger. By how much larger? Compared to the Kia cee’d SW with a trunk capacity of 528 liters, the new 2017 i30 Wagon is expected to offer a total volume that is larger by 17 liters.

With regards to the unit that powers the 2017 i30 Wagon, it is expected to be the same as that of the one inside the five-door hatchback. Specifically, this is the 1.4-liter turbocharged gas-powered engine capable of 138 hp (103 kW) with maximum torque of 197 lb.-ft. (242 Nm). For those who think this is too much power, Hyundai is offering a 1.4-liter naturally-aspirated version that can deliver 100 hp. As if that is not enough, Hyundai is also giving customers the chance to have the three-cylinder turbocharged 1.0-liter engine with output of 120 hp.

Hyundai brought a New Generation i30 three-door model to the 2013 Geneva Motor Show to demonstrate how smartphones can be used as an essential component to make the motoring experience more personalized, pleasant, and practical. Hyundai showed off how drivers can benefit from the more intensive integration of personal devices (smartphones) and Hyundai models.

Hyundai is running this innovative connectivity concept in partnership with LG. Under Hyundai’s connectivity project, the smartphone can unlock the doors and instantly personalize its settings, which include changing the electric seat and mirror positions, as well as its radio station presets, navigation settings, menu appearance and other preferences. When the smartphone is positioned in a particular location in the center console, it can be wirelessly charged.

This means that the driver can do away with having nasty-looking cables in the cabin. For the first time ever, this system exclusively uses wireless MirrorLink, which enables the driver to get access to and make use of the smartphone’s content by using the 7-inch high-resolution touch screen of the i30.

This is the third model to come out from the New Generation i30 family, joining the five-door hatchback and the Tourer to increase the appeal of Hyundai’s ‘made for Europe’ C-segment range to a broader audience.

To simulate a family with the most unruly kids in the planet, safari park baboons were permitted to do whatever harm they could on Hyundai’s New Generation i30 hatchback. This is the first endurance test ever that has used monkeys for the wear and tear challenge. Hyundai designed the car especially for families and with the expectation that it will require very strong materials on the interior.

Hyundai got the services of baboons from Knowsley Safari Park to wreak havoc on its family car. These baboons are known for their desire to tear apart the park visitors' cars, which include Wayne Rooney's vehicle when he went to the Merseyside park in 2011. The i30 family car was parked in the baboon enclosure for 10 hours.

The baboons wasted no time in punishing the car by jumping on the seats, pulling and twisting buttons, and opening and closing storage bins. They also didn’t hesitate to check the durability of cupholders with the plastic drinking beakers. The paintwork on the exterior was smeared and scraped, but there were no major scratches and chips because it had hard-wearing paint.

A product is renewed typically after a seven-year period but Hyundai will launch its second-generation i30 compact car only after five years. Hyundai wants to ensure that the i30 will stay competitive in Europe's second-biggest segment after subcompacts. Market researchers JATO Dynamics said that the i30 is Hyundai's top-seller in Europe.

However, the car's European sales declined by almost 12% last year to 101,328 units. Hyundai chose to take action with the new seventh-generation Volkswagen Golf, Europe's top-selling car for the last four years, slated to launch this year. Oliver Gutt, Hyundai Germany's head of product management, said that the i30 is its “most important car” when it comes to volume and brand positioning.

He said that the company sensed that the time was right to introduce a “fresh contender in this segment.” Gutt asserted that on average, the i30 is cheaper by 8% compared to its rivals in the segment, including the Golf, Ford Focus, Opel/Vauxhall Astra, Citroen C4 and Peugeot 308.
