This year’s Geneva International Motor Show will be the stage for the unveiling of the new Hyundai i30 Wagon. Based on the new Hyundai i30 hatchback that debuted in September last year, the i30 Wagon will come with added practicality and more boot space.
“The New Generation i30 Wagon speaks the language of the i30 family in terms of design, and it carries the new Hyundai family identity – the Cascading Grille,” explains Thomas Bürkle, Chief Designer at Hyundai Design Centre Europe. “The tapering roofline and the dynamic proportions give the Wagon an almost coupé-like silhouette. The sleek and dynamic profile is further emphasised by a rich chrome frame surrounding the side windows.”
Stylistically, the new i30 Wagon is expected to borrow the i30 hatchback’s ‘Cascading Grille’, full-LED headlamps, svelte bodywork and LED tail lamps. The interiors are expected to be similar to the hatchback’s as well, and feature a new multi-function three-spoke steering wheel, climate control, optional panoramic glass sunroof and a 8-inch touchscreen equipped infotainment system offering both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
Of course, the Wagon will have more luggage capacity than the hatchback’s, which is rated at 395 litres. The new Hyundai i30 Wagon will be powered by a range of small-displacement turbo charged petrol and diesel engines that include three petrol engines and one diesel engine. It will further feature a host of active safety features.
