The third-generation Hyundai i30 will soon be introduced, and it is said that this one will be more spacious and more practical compared to the current model. The 2017 Hyundai i30 wagon will be officially revealed at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show, but the side profile of the vehicle has been teased before that.
What we can see is the elongated roofline and modified rear segment in order to increase the trunk space. The ongoing i30 model has 528 liters of space in the trunk which is enough to put a lot of stuff, but the cargo capacity should be increased on the new version. Just for the record, the cargo capacity of the hatchback has leaped by 17 liters.
2017 Hyundai i30 Engine
Under the hood, the 2017 Hyundai i30 will carry over the engines from the five-door hatchback, but a 1.4-liter turbocharged gasoline unit will be offered as well. This engine produces 138 horsepower and 179 lb-ft of torque, but you will also be able to choose an entry-level naturally aspirated 1.4-liter good for 100 hp. In between the two is a 1.0-liter turbocharged three-cylinder powerplant that delivers 120 hp.
Another option is a 1.6-liter turbodiesel perfect for those who drive on the highway a lot, and it can produce 95, 110 and 136 hp depending on chosen version. The transmissions that are available are a six-speed manual and a seven-speed, dual clutch automatic, but which one you receive depends on the engine you opt for.
Following the i30 wagon, Hyundai will offer the N hot hatch which engine is rated at 250 hp and 275 hp. At the beginning of 2018, the fastback version will become available, but the three-door coupe will not enter the third-generation. The new model will be introduced on March 7th in Geneva, and it will hit the market soon after that.
We will know more about the 2017 Hyundai i30 after the Geneva Motor Show, so follow us for more details.
