Hyundai's 2011 Elantra-based wagon, dubbed in the press as the i40W, has been spied in cold-weather testing this week.

Although the exterior of the new Hyundai has been revealed, our spy photographers managed to get a close look at the new small wagon's cabin and door trim.

Inside, the i40W appears to feature a dash design and layout related more closely to the i45 than the new Elantra (known also as the 'MD'), while also boasting a steering wheel design entirely different to that used in the brand's current range.

The new wagon is understood to be built on a version of the platform used by the larger i45 sedan, which offers a wheelbase exactly 95mm longer than the 'MD' sedan.

Engine options for the Korean and European versions of the new wagon are expected to include Hyundai's new 1.7 litre CRDI diesel engine, offered in 85kW and 100kW forms.

A more powerful 130kW version of the engine will reportedly join the line-up later in 2011, matched to a new dual-clutch automatic transmission.

The new 'VF' or 'i40W' will make its debut the Geneva Auto Show in March 2011.

 

Australia

An Australian debut for Hyundai's new mid-size wagon has not been confirmed (Hyundai has not yet confirmed details internationally either).

It is believed however that the wagon will be sold alongside the i45 - with similar trim and engine options - to give Hyundai a sorely-needed competitor against the wagon versions of the Mazda6, Ford Mondeo and Subaru Liberty.

Speaking with TMR today, Hyundai Australia's Ben Hershman could say only that it is too early to confirm if any plans exist for the new wagon.
