Hyundai has revealed the first images of its all-new i40 wagon ahead of the vehicle’s world premiere in Geneva. The exterior shots follow on the teaser pix released earlier in the month of the car’s interior.

The i40, which is the company’s first midsize vehicle to be developed specifically for the European market, will come with a package of powertrains, equipment and technology tailored for the continent. The wagon will be joined by a sedan variant later in the year.

Among the powertrains will be a 1.7 litre diesel engine, codenamed UII, and items on the standard equipment list will include three segment firsts – heated and reclining front and rear seats; a heated steering wheel; and an active demist system that automatically detects and clears condensation on the windscreen.

The i40’s debut also coincides with Hyundai’s launch of its new brand slogan – New Thinking. New Possibilities – that represents the company’s bold new concept of “modern premium,” a philosophy that premium quality and characteristics should be accessible to everyone.
