Hyundai has released the first pictures glorifying the new i30 Wagon that will be unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show in a couple of weeks. It becomes the second variant to join the new generation of i30 vehicles following the five-door version.

It features the same front end styling as its sibling, dominated by the brand's stylish hexagon-shaped grille and signature headlights. The fluidic sculpture and sloping roof line that is revealed from the side profile is intended to portray a stationary car appearing to be in motion.

The wheelbase has increased by 185mm to 4485mm in comparison to its predecessor which creates a spacious interior and a best-in-class cargo area of 528-liters. Put the seats down and this figure increases to 1642-liters and easily exceeds the figures that the previous generation model boasted.

The same engines that bless the five-door version will also be available in the wagon. The three diesel engines are topped out by a 1.6 liter unit with 128 PS (94 kW / 126 hp) and 260 Nm (192 lb-ft) of torque. There will also be three petrol engine options, the most powerful being the 1.6 liter Gamma DGI unit with 135 PS (99 kW / 133 hp) and 164 Nm (121 lb-ft) of torque.

Further details and interior photos are expected to be released closer to the i30 Wagon's debut next month.
