Hyundai has left the motor world sensational after releasing a teaser image of the new i30 Wagon, set to launch in March at the Geneva Motor Show. The South Korean automobile giant first revealed the manufacture of the i30 Wagon in September 2016 at the Paris Motor Show but left the fun club in suspense when they failed to release pictures of the automobile. The design and size of the vehicle had been in speculation since the publication of some spy photos at the end of 2016.
The i30 is expected to rival the Ford Focus and the Volkswagen Golf which are both Hyundai models. Some quarters differ from the idea and feel that it will be more of an alternative to the two models based on its specs. The new generation i30 Wagon is expected to cost as much as £17,000 in the UK. According to the Chief Designer at Hyundai Thomas Bürkle, the vehicle’s rooftop arch’s towards the back of the car, and on the outside boasts of robust proportions and a smooth chrome finish around the side windows.
The i30 Wagon is expected to rank among the best station wagons in the market just like its predecessor the i30 hatchback. The released mule was heavily covered, and the teaser hasn’t revealed as much, but the vehicle is expected to have a sharp bumper, a sloping rise to the shoulder line and a small rooftop giving it a coupe design.
Concerning practicability, the i30 Wagon beats the i30 Hatchback in many ways. It is expected to have a higher volume boot than the hatchback’s 1.4-liter fuel capacity. It has several superior engines that will allow a user to select speeds of choice and a 1.6-liter Direct Injection Engine with lower carbon emissions. The three diesel and petrol options will be available in 94bhp, 109bhp or 134bhp with an automatic gearbox.
To set the i30 Wagon apart in Electronic Stability and Control (ESC), it has a sophisticated chassis to reduce body roll and give excellent feedback. The Vehicle stability management (VSM) is evenly balanced to maintain a perfect line. Both the ESC and the VSM will allow a driver to react to the road and drive with confidence.
