While the carefully mysterious image above was all Hyundai was showing, take a look at the host of images on google.com, such as the one below…

Thomas Bürkle, chief designer at the Hyundai Design Centre in Russelsheim, said: “The new member of the i30 family maintains the timeless design of its five-door sedan sibling, adding elegance and versatility in its bodystyle.

“It speaks the language of the i30 family in terms of design. It carries the new Hyundai family identity – the cascading grille. The tapering roofline and the dynamic proportions give the Wagon a coupé-like silhouette.

“The sleek and dynamic profile is emphasised by a chromed frame around each side windows.”
