This year quite a lot of car makers presented at the show attractive wagons, from the Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG to the Saab 9-5 Sportcombi, there's been a car for every taste and budget. Hyundai added to the collection its new i40 estate and this car is too, is a good-looked.
Keeping the same sharply rising character line as the Sonata sedan on which it's based, the i40 however has a more traditional nose, with a smaller grille and headlamps that look more like those from the Sonata Hybrid. Overall, the front visual is somewhere between the Elantra and Veloster, but either way, it's all Hyundai and it's an attractive piece.
Hyundai said that the i40 was developed in Rüsselsheim, Germany, with the European market firmly in mind, and it will be The Continent's first crack at the model range when it hits dealers later this year. A sedan variant will follow, but it's not known if it will look like the North American YF Sonata sedan, or if it will adopt this car's front clip.
