Hyundai aims for a piece of Europe with Czech-built i30 Estate

Hyundai i30

Hyundai's desperate attempt to come over all European continues with the arrival of the i30 Estate.

Yep, it's an estate version of the uninspiring i30 hatch, built in the Czech Republic to give it that all-important Euro flavour.

It was also designed in Frankfurt, although we're not sure if that's a good or a bad thing design-wise.

The i30 Estate will go on sale early in 2008 in the UK with 1.6-litre petrol and turbodiesel engines.

Now share it...
