Hyundai has just released the first photos showing the upcoming i40 CW, the wagon flavor of the i40 that is going to be unveiled at the 2011 Geneva Auto Show in March next year. Not much is known about the model, but writes that it will measure 4.77 meters in length, 1.81 meters in width and will be offered with a wheelbase of 2.72 meters.

The engine lineup is said to rely on the two CRDI and GDI versions currently available on the Kia Optima, while a third option, a hybrid version borrowed from the Sonata, is still under consideration.

Earlier rumors indicated that the i40 wagon would be powered by the same engines on the i40 sedan, which means the car will be offered with 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 lineup will comprise 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.

As mentioned, the i40 CW will appear for the first time in front of the public at the 2011 Geneva Auto Show next March, with sales to begin later the next year.
