Hyundai has confirmed that its new i30 Tourer wagon range will kick off at $22,990 when it launches in Australia early next year.
The i30 Tourer range will be offered in two trim grades: the entry-level Active, starting $2000 above the entry-level hatch, and the Elite, at $31,190.
The Active grade will be offered in both manual and automatic, 1.6 petrol and 1.6 diesel forms, while the Elite will be offered in 1.6 diesel automatic form only.
While the hatch range gets a 1.8 litre petrol engine producing 110kW and 178Nm of torque, the 1.6 litre petrol in the i30 Tourer offers 99kW and 164Nm.
Diesel models feature the same 1.6 litre engine driving the hatch, offering 94kW and 260Nm.
Depending on specification, transmissions include six-speed manual or six-speed automatic (with sequential manual mode) options.
Standard safety features across the i30 Tourer range include Vehicle Stability Management (VSM), Electronic Stability Control (ESC), Traction Control System (TCS), and ABS with EBD & Brake Assist System (BAS).
The i30 Tourer shares the hatch's 2650mm wheelbase, but adds 185mm in overall length. Rear storage capacity has thus grown to 528 litres with the rear seats up - a full 150 litres more than the hatch.
Storage capacity increases to 1642 litres with the second row folded flat, again an increase, this time of 326 litres.
Seven airbags are standard, and there is also ultra-high tensile steel within the body shell.
Hyundai says equipment levels of the i30 Tourer models will be similar, but not identical, to their hatch stablemates.
Australian range and specification details will be available closer to the Tourer's launch, which is expected in early 2013.
