Hyundai's i30 Wagon to join the N Line range for the first time in the line's history

Hyundai reveals the new i30 ahead of its Geneva Motor Show debut

Hyundai is giving the entire i30 lineup - the hatch, fastback, and wagon - a facelift for 2020.

After giving the public a sneak peek of the new i30 a few weeks ago, Hyundai officially revealed the facelifted i30 Tuesday, announcing that all three body types in the line have been updated with more technology, a new look and better fuel efficiency.

As was hinted at earlier this month, the front end of the i30 has been given a more aggressive stance featuring a wider grille, slimmer headlights and V-shaped signature LED daytime running lights which are reiterated on the rear bumper.

In the cabin, owners will find a 7-inch digital cluster and 10.25-inch navigation touchscreen display compatible with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. Optionally, users can subscribe to the company's Bluelink connected system which Hyundai describes as like "having a butler, a team of secret service agents and a restaurant-sniffing bloodhound, all in one."

Complementing these tools and services are a series of smart safety technologies like Lane Following Assist, Rear Collision-Avoidance Assist and Blind Spot Detection among others.

For the first time in the model's history, the i30 wagon is available with the motorsport-inspired N Line trim like the hatch and fastback iterations. The trim, which has also been given a refresh, gives models either 17- or 18-inch wheels, a suspension tuned for a dynamic ride and either a 1.5 T-GDi 160 PS or 1.6 Diesel 136 PS engine.

Buyers of standard models can select from a series of engines some of which are available with 48-volt Mild Hybrid technology.

The i30 Wagon will be available in the N Line trim starting this summer. More information about the facelifted i30 will be given at the Geneva Motor Show next week where it will be officially revealed.
