The Hyundai i40 wagon that made its debut in Geneva earlier this year will have a sedan sibling very soon – the i40 saloon is set to make its world debut at the Barcelona Motor Show on May 12.

There’s only a single teaser image rendering of the vehicle, and though no specific details have been mentioned, the company states that the saloon will feature a low, elongated roof line that lends it a coupe-like silhouette, and its styling will keep with the dynamic design element as presented with the i40 estate.

The vehicle, like the estate version designed and engineered at Hyundai’s European R&D headquarters in Rüsselsheim, Germany, promises to be spacious inside, delivering best-in-class dimensions of 1025 mm (front headroom), 1455 mm (shoulder room) and 1170 mm (legroom).

As for the reason for a Spanish debut, the company says that the saloon market in Spain is a very strong one, accounting for almost 40% of the D-segment, so Barcelona is a logical choice for a reveal of such importance.
