Hyundai Reveals i30 Wagon for 2017
Despite the high demand for SUVs, there is still a significant portion of the market that prefers wagons. Given this fact, automakers strive to give what the market wants and this is exactly what Hyundai has done with the introduction of its i30 Wagon.
Hyundai i30 Wagon: Grabbing The Spotlight
Hyundai did a good job when it introduced the 2018 Elantra GT hatchback and things became even more exiting when the automaker announced that it has an optional manual transmission paired with a turbo engine. However, it looks like a hatchback is simply not enough for wagon enthusiasts. The i30 Wagon is originally introduced in the European market and it would be one welcome addition to the Hyundai family in the U.S.
Hyundai i30 Wagon: The Expected Powertrain Specs
According to a report from Kelley Blue Book, the European specs give the buyers a 1.0-liter three-cylinder engine that makes 118 horsepower. In addition, there would also be a 1.4-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that delivers 138 horsepower. Finally, a 1.6-liter diesel will also be available with three configurations to deliver 94 to 131 horsepower. It was mentioned that the one with front wheel drive configuration is paired with standard six-speed manual transmission with an option for a seven-speed dual clutch automatic gearbox but this will depend on the powertrain.
Hyundai i30 Wagon: Making Its Debut
According to Car and Driver, the Hyundai i30 Wagon is scheduled to make its debut at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show that is set to take place next week. It was mentioned that consumers can expect for it to have similar styling as its i30 hatchback counterpart but people should also expect it to have differences since it is a wagon. In addition, people can expect more cargo space than the i30 hatchback.
Hyundai i30 Wagon: Will It Come To The US?
Hyundai has not yet announced whether the i30 Wagon will also be delivered for the U.S. market. People will simply have to wait until the Hyundai i30 makes its official debut where announcements will likely be made about its future in the North American market.
