Hyundai considers a wagon version of the i20

Article by Christian A., on October 26, 2014

Hyundai seems determined to offer a station wagon version of its latest i20 subcompact hatchback, according to Hyundai Europe’s design boss Thomas Buerkle. He also added that the i20 wagon could follow the same design line of a traditional wagon or it could be a mix between a station wagon and a shooting brake in three- and five-door variants.

This new vehicle will take on rival vehicles such as the Skoda Fabia Combi or the Peugeot 208 SW. This move could help Hyundai increase its sales in the subcompact segment in Europe, which will introduce the new i20 five-door model starting early next year, while the i20 Coupe will arrive later in 2015.

Comparing it with its predecessor, the new i20 is wider, lower and comes with a longer wheelbase as according to Buerkle, the vehicle was a little bit shy before. The vehicle is 4.02 m long, 1.73 m wide and it is similar in size to the Renault Clio.

The new models will arrive with company’s new 1.0-liter three-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine that produces up to 120 hp. Analysts estimate that the i20 could achieve annual sales volumes in Europe of up to 120,000 units, up from 80,000 last year.
