Hyundai i30 wagon

Hyundai is introducing the next-generation wagon variant of the i30, which has an extended wheelbase and a bigger trunk, at the Geneva Motor Show next month.

"The new-generation i30 has been widely praised for its style, quality and value. Our new wagon offers all of those attributes plus even greater load-carrying capacity," said Allan Rushforth, senior vice president and chief operating officer of Hyundai Motor Europe. "We expect it to appeal strongly to those looking for stylish and flexible practicality, especially active families."

The Hyundai i30 is 185mm longer than its five-door sibling. It is also 10mm longer than its predecessor wagon. With the increase in length, the new i30 wagon now offers 528 liters of cargo space. When the rear passenger seats are folded, the space expands to 1,642 liters.

The i30 wagon will be offered in three gasoline-fed and three diesel-fed engines with output ranging from 94hp to 133hp.

The new wagon will be unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show--and will be available in Europe. Do you think this car will also be popular in the Philippines if Hyundai decides to bring it in?
