2017 Hyundai i30 CW Spotted Testing Alongside Golf Variant Rival

Despite the new Hyundai i30 hatchback showing up at the Paris Auto Show back in September, the model’s CW (Cross Wagon) version has yet to take off its camouflage.

You could say that all that heavy camo is a bit pointless since we’re only expecting the estate’s rear end to be different, but Hyundai isn’t taking any chances – they’ve even covered up the interior rather well.

Even so, the cabin will be identical to that of the 5-door version, boasting the same optional 8-inch display with Apple CarPlay & Android Auto, plus MyMusic functionality, a premium audio system, rear view camera, as well as a wide array of safety features such as Smart Cruise Control, Blind Spot Detection, Lane Keeping Assist, Speed Limit Information Function, High Beam Assist, Autonomous Emergency Braking with Front Collision Warning and Rear Cross Traffic Alert.

Its engine lineup should include the same three petrol and three diesel units found underneath the hood of the hatch. The petrol range comprises of an entry-level 1.4-liter 100 PS petrol unit, a 1.0-liter three-cylinder 120 PS petrol and a 140 PS 1.4-liter T-GDI turbocharged four. As for the diesels, it’s a 1.6-liter DOHC, which is available in three outputs: 95 PS, 110 PS and 136 PS.

At this time, we’re not sure when Hyundai will unveil the i30 CW, though it could be as soon as Geneva in March. Once it arrives, it will battle the likes of the Golf Variant, Megane Sport Tourer, Focus Sportbreak and Astra Sports Tourer.

    I currently drive a 2016 Sonata for company car and had a tide in a 2017 Elantra, I have to say latest Hyundai’s are very refined cars. No wonder why they brought a Golf aside. Impressive indeed.
