Spyshots: 2011 Hyundai i40 Wagon
The South Korean carmaker was testing the i40 Wagon in the Swiss Alps when the spy photographers managed to take several shots of the car. Judging by the photos, the future model will be less practical, pretty uncanny for a wagon model, but more stylish and modern.
The engines will be the same as the ones on the i40 sedan, so expect to see a pair of direct injection (GDI) four-cylinder petrol units, plus the gasoline-electric hybrid powertrain.
If we are to trust the rumors surrounding the i40 model, the car will be powered by either a 1.6-liter diesel or gasoline engines featuring Hyundai's direct injection technology called GDI, which is said to bring a significant boost in power equivalent with that of a 2.0-liter powerplant. A 1.6-liter diesel version with two different power outputs, 115 and 136 horsepower, will be included as well, with the diesel range to also include a 2.0-liter 184 hp plus a 2.2-liter 200 hp.
The gasoline engines, on the other hand, will include a 2.0-liter four-cylinder unit producing 172 horsepower and a 2.4-liter Theta GDI unit rolling out 200 horsepower. The latter will be only available on the top-of-the-range Hyundai i40.
