Parkers overall rating: 4 out of 5 4.0

The cockpit of the i30 Tourer is very similar to that of the hatchback model. The high quality materials carry over, while the drivers’ seat is comfortable and the controls well-positioned. The dash lighting is a stylish blue colour, while the plastics are a mixture of shiny gloss and soft-touch textured black. Visibility is excellent and the driving position is well-conceived.

Hyundai i30 comfort levels are outstanding – this really is the car’s trump card. The seats are extremely comfortable and supportive, making this a very nice place to spend extended period of time without feeling worn out. Company car drivers will love this car for its mile-munching capability. There’s not much in the way of engine, road or wind noise either.

Of special note is the ride quality, which is impressively supple and absorbent. When combined with the comfy seats, the i30 Tourer really is a nice place to spend your time.
