Hyundai is bringing their i30 Wagon to Geneva and it has been unveiled two weeks shy of its official debut.
Hyundai has lifted the veil on their latest i30 variant just before the Geneva Motor Show. The latest continuant of the South Korean automaker's 'fluidic sculpture' design line is a wagon sure to turn heads and garner plenty of attention at the Swiss show. The i30 Wagon measures 185mm longer than the hatchback and 10mm longer than its previous version. A 528-liter loading area in the back promises plenty of room for your kid's soccer equipment and gives a total interior area with the seats down of 1,642 liters.
Allan Rushforth, Senior Vice President and Chief Operating Officer of Hyundai Motor Europe commented on the i30 Wagon, saying "The New Generation i30 has been widely praised for its style, quality, and value. Our new wagon offers all of those attributes plus even greater load-carrying capacity. We expect it to appeal strongly to those looking for stylish and flexible practicality, especially active families." The i30 Wagon runs on either a 99hp 1.4-liter gasoline engine or a 108hp 1.6-liter diesel. The Blue Drive diesel returns 76.3mpg, though no official figures have been released as of yet.
The Hyundai i30 Wagon is expected to price around £16,000 when it goes on sale later in the year. It will make its debut on March 6th at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show.
