2011 Hyundai i40 CW sketches released

Article by Christian A., on December 14, 2010

These are the first official photos of Hyundai’s upcoming i40 CW, the wagon variant of the i40 that will be shown at the 2011 Geneva Auto Show in March. Not a lot of details are available about the model but according to our sources, the vehicle will measure 4.77 meters in length, 1.81 meters in width and will have a wheelbase of 2.72 meters.

It’s also believed that its engine lineup consists of two CRDI and GDI versions currently offered on the Kia Optima.

Hyundai is considering a third option: a hybrid version borrowed from the Sonata. There had been rumors that the i40 wagon will be equipped with the same engines on the i40 sedan.

What this means is that the i40 wagon will have either a 1.6-liter diesel or gasoline engines that use Hyundai's direct injection technology called GDI, which considerably boosts the power to be similar to that of a 2.0-liter powerplant.

It’s also likely that there will be a 1.6-liter diesel version that will be offered in two different power outputs, 115 and 136hp.

The diesel range is expected to also include a 2.0-liter 184 hp as well as a 2.2-liter 200 hp. Meanwhile, the gasoline lineup has a 2.0-liter four-cylinder unit delivering 172hp and a 200hp 2.4-liter Theta GDI unit, which is only offered on the range-topping Hyundai i40. [via Autoblog.it]
