Hyundai to expand new i30 range with wagon model

Hyundai will launch an estate version of its next generation i30 and the new model has been revealed ahead of its launch at the Geneva Motor Show on March 6.

The i30 wagon shares engines and running gear with the i30 five-door, but has a longer body to increase boot space, which Hyundai believe doesn’t compromise the model’s styling.

The i30 wagon’s overall length is increased by 185 mm to 4485 mm over its five-door sibling.

Compared with the five-door, the wagon expands trunk space from 378-litres to 528-litres – and with the rear passenger seats folded down, cargo volume increases to 1,642-litres.

Hyundai’s five year triple care package will be included with each i30 wagon sale. The deal comprises a five-year unlimited warranty, five years’ roadside assistance, and five years of vehicle health checks.

The i30 wagon will be available across Europe with the same three petrol engines and three diesel engines as the five-door, producing 88bhp to 133bhp. The full UK specification will be confirmed at a later date. The new i30 goes on sale early next year.

Allan Rushforth, senior vice president and chief operating officer of Hyundai Motor Europe, said: "We expect the i30 wagon to appeal strongly to those looking for stylish and flexible practicality, especially active families."
