Hyundai reveals i40 wagon before Geneva debut

Before it makes an official debut at the upcoming Geneva Motor Show, Hyundai has unveiled its new i40 wagon. Developed at Hyundai’s European facility in Rüsselsheim, Germany, the i40 is to be launched in Europe in wagon form before the sedan follows later in the year. The new car features original design characteristics and will be marketed as a luxury car at an affordable price.

The Hyundai i40 Wagon will come with a range of engine and transmission options to suit the European markets but specific details are yet to be officially announced. But one engine option will be a 1.7-litre diesel unit (codenamed UII), which comes promising very high fuel efficiency and will emit just 113 grams of CO2 per kilometre.

In terms of styling the i40 Estate has a modern appeal and is nicely in sync with the current range of Hyundai vehicles. Hyundai says the car adopts the company’s latest ‘fluidic sculpture’ design philosophy, and includes details such as the hexagonal grille layout, sharp multi-angle headlight clusters, spotlight shards, and an unmistakable grin in the lower section of the front bumper bar.

The equipment level is high with luxury features, including heated seats, heated steering wheel and an auto-demist feature for the windscreen.

There has been no announcement about the i40 Wagon coming to NZ, the car will reach the European market this June.
