The heat is on with the 2017 Geneva Motor Show which opens its gates in a couple of weeks, with most of the carmakers already previewing their latest models ahead the event.
Hyundai is back into the spotlights with the all-new 2017 i30, the model popping-up online in a teaser image with its wagon version.
There are little details concerning the upcoming 2017 Hyundai i30 Wagon, but the rumor mill has it that it will borrow the same design lines from the standard model, coming with a wagon style at the rear end. The engine suite is also likely to be borrowed from the hatchback.
The teaser image below is not showing much, just the evolutionary silhouette with muscular lines. We should expect new front grille, updated headlights and taillights, much sportier intake clusters, longer roofline, new trimmings for the windows and so on.
Speaking of the car`s design and details, Thomas Burkle, Chief Designer at Hyundai in Europe, has also declared into a recent interview:
“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 coupe-like silhouette. The sleek and dynamic profile is further emphasised by a rich chrome frame surrounding the side windows.”
As for the engine lineup under the hood, we should the shame suite found in the hatchback, like the brand-new 1.4-liter petrol developing 138 horsepower. On the other hand, the much more potent N variant, also discussed in previews articles, will also gain a 2.0-liter petrol, with two power configurations – 247 horsepower and 271 horsepower, respectively. Stay tuned for Geneva unveiling.
