Hyundai considers i30 station wagon

Korean carmaker Hyundai is considering introducing a station wagon vrsion of its very successful i30 small car into the Australian market in the near future. Hyundai product planning manager Ben Hershman, said the company was looking at just what spec and trim levels it would bring the i30CW in and indicated that the two we looked at, a cloth trim base model and a luxury trim leather model were both likely to be selected. He said the company was still deciding if it would bring both petrol and diesel engines in in the i30CW but indicated at was almost certain that the diesel engine would be selected.

The CW has a slightly lengthened wheelbase over the i30 hatchback now on sale in Australia and a slightly longer overhang , which together provide it with a reasonable load carrying space behind the rear seats, which feature a 60/40 split. The vehicles we looked at both had alloy wheels , the lower spec running on 16-inch, and the up-spec vehicle on 17-inch.

The interiors were very similar to the current hatchbacks although the cloth trimmed wagon’s brown trim seemed unlikely to find favour in Australia. However, the black leather trim had a very high quality, luxury look and feel to it.
