2018 Hyundai I30 Release Date and Price
The publication of the new 2018 Hyundai I30 has been started at Paris Motor Show in the beginning of 2016 and it is a new wagon, but we didn’t see its real look up to now. We only can see its new design on the picture given by spy photographers. It was covered with heavy camouflage, but some parts are noticed. It will go with the same front end and doors just like the hatchback version and this is a typical for wagon to get the design derived from the hatchback or sedan.
2018 Hyundai I30 will use the same platform as the predecessors and the Kia’s Cee’d. You can find the five-door liftback version which will be produced during the production of the standard version. Hyundai, the South Korean automaker informed that they have a plan to release the liftback version after they finished working the wagon. The liftback is a vehicle just like a sedan which has an opening rear hatch. It is between the hatchback and the estate. Some significant revisions will be added such as new front and rear lights from the current Accord, redesigned radiator grille together with bumper with fog lamps and this is a great family car for you.
About the details of the interior, it is still unknown. We only can assume that they will provide significant changes. It might go with new front panel, seats, steering wheel, center tunnel and latest infotainment system. In addition, the new 2018 Hyundai I30 will not work if you expect the drastic changes inside. They don’t have any concern to make the interior as the center of attention, but they surely will give you higher level of functional and comfortable cabin.
2018 Hyundai I30 Engine
Move on the engine side, the new 2018 Hyundai I30 is still unclear to use what kind of engine. Likely, they will install V6 engine but with the slight improvement. It is still has 3.5 liter of capacity but the power to produce can be around 280 hp with the support of transmission borrowed from the crossover MDX, the nine-speed auto transmission. For the second engine, it will be 1.5 or 2.0 liter turbocharged that is also used by the latest Honda Civic and it is used for the base trims.
So, the wagon shared the same rear end with the regular 2018 Hyundai I30. The Kia Cee’d is still developed and will be released in 2017. It is possible if the company will release it at the same year at Geneva Motor Show. About the price, it will not get significant change. It can be less than $30,000.
