Hyundai is once again relying on its signature fluidic sculpture style to design the body of the new i30 Wagon, which will be on display at the next 2012 Geneva Motor Show (8th – 18th March). The Korean estate is characterised by a pronouced swage line that runs along the sides of the body, hexagon-shape grille and signature headlights, while the rear lights have the same design of the five door hatchback’s.
Hyundai i30 Wagon will be replacing the current i30 CW and its wheelbase measures 4,480 mm, 185mm more than its predecessor. The trunk space expands from 528 l (150 l more than the five-door hatchback) to 1,672 l, which brings the new i30 at the top of its class.
The i30 Wagon was designed at Hyundai’s European R&D Centre in Rüsselsheim, Germany, and will be available from October 2012. It will offer a choice of three petrol engines - 1.4 l (100 hp) and 1.6 l (120 hp and 135 hp) - and three diesel engines - 1.4 l (90 hp) and 1.6 l (110 hp and 128 hp).
