The Hyundai i30 lineup will expand with the addition of the all-new i30 wagon. Debuting at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show, the i30 wagon is everything you expect, combining the tasteful styling of the i30 hatchback with the practicality of a wagon.
The front half of the i30 Wagon — inside and out — is virtually identical to that of the i30 hatchback (the Elantra GT in North America), but the back half has been lengthen by 185 mm (7.3-in.) to 4,485 mm (176.6-in.), increasing cargo space to 528-litres, compared to the hatchback’s 378-litres. Cargo space swells to 1,642 liters with the rear seats folded flat.
Not surprisingly, the i30 Wagon will use the same engines and running gear as the hatchback. It will be offered with three petrol engines and three diesel engines that range from 88 horsepower to 133-HP.
The Hyundai i30 station wagon will go on sale across Europe in the summer of 2012. No word on whether it will be offered in North America.
