Hyundai unveiled its new i30 CW (Cross Wagon) at the 2008 Australian International Motor Show in Sydney, alongside an array of 2009 Hyundai models now going on sale.
The i30 CW is based on the i30 hatch but offers greater luggage capacity and a slightly longer wheelbase, contained within attractive new external styling.
The vehicle on display has 17” Alloys with 225/45 R17 tyres, side repeaters in the outside mirrors, USB and AUX and iPod connectivity, 6 speakers including 2 tweeters, steering wheel mounted audio controls, 6 airbags and ESP Stability Control. It is presented in Sleek Silver paintwork with a black leather interior.
The i30 CW achieves a minimum turning radius of 10.42 m as compared to 10.34 m for the i30 hatch
The i30 CW offers drivers versatility of a hatchback with more room for rear passengers and cargo. The i30 CW is well suited to an active lifestyle with plenty of room to fit a full size stroller plus luggage or sports equipment.
The engine line-up for launch will mirror the successful i30 hatch, comprising the 1.6 litre CRDi turbo Diesel and 2.0 litre petrol engines.
Pricing will be made available at the time of launch early next year.
Like the i30 hatch, the i30 CW’s suspension and steering will be tuned for Australian road conditions.
