Hyundai teases upcoming i30 Wagon ahead of Geneva debut

The all-new Hyundai i30 will soon be available as a family wagon after Hyundai released a teaser image of the upcoming i30 Wagon.

Set to make its world debut at the 2017 Geneva International Motor Show, the new i30 Wagon will retain the five-door design from its hatchback sibling, while incorporating 'elegance and versatility' according to Hyundai.

The i30 Wagon carries over the sleek shape from the hatchback. Different, however, on the i30 Wagon are the extended rear glass area and the slightly tweaked taillights. Also providing a bit of flair on the new wagon is the chrome frame that surrounds the side windows.

“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. The tapering roofline and the dynamic proportions give the Wagon an almost coupé-like silhouette,” said Thomas Burkle, chief designer at Hyundai Design Center Europe.

Powertrain options for the i30 Wagon are expected to be carried-over from the hatchback. These include three gasoline-powered engines, the 120 PS 1.0-liter T-GDI three-cylinder, the 140 PS 1.4-liter T-GDI inline-four and the naturally-aspirated 1.4-liter MPI which puts out 100 PS.

Over to diesel, the i30 will be fitted with a 1.6-liter inline-four that is availabe in three output ratings; 95, 110 and 133 PS.

The all-new i30 Wagon will officially be revealed on March 7, 2017.
