Could in which Hyundai Elantra Wagon Be Headed for the U.S.?
Hyundai got our attention when in which introduced the 2018 Elantra GT hatchback with an optional turbo engine along with also a manual transmission. yet if in which truly wants to win over the hearts of enthusiasts within the United States, in which will bring over in which fresh Europe-market i30 wagon, stat. After all, the Elantra GT is actually essentially the U.S.-market variation of the i30 hatchback sold in Europe. The i30 wagon seen here, then, could certainly be a welcome addition to the pool of affordable wagons within the U.S., which currently includes only the Volkswagen Golf SportWagen, the Subaru Outback, along with also the Mini Cooper Clubman.
via the C pillar forward, the i30 wagon shares its attractive styling with the i30 hatch. The roof, however, extends rearward a bit further on the wagon, presumably doing for even more cargo space than the hatchback’s 25 cubic feet. We can also assume in which the wagon shares its powertrain lineup with the i30, although full details won’t be available until your vehicle’s official debut next week at the Geneva auto show.
