Hyundai unveiled its new i30 CW (Cross Wagon) at the 2008 Australian International Motor Show in Sydney, alongside an array of 2009 Hyundai models now going on sale.

The vehicle on display has 17” Alloys with 225/45 R17 tyres, side repeaters in the outside mirrors, USB and AUX and iPod connectivity, 6 speakers including 2 tweeters, steering wheel mounted audio controls, 6 airbags and ESP Stability Control.  It is presented in Sleek Silver paintwork with a black leather interior.

The i30 CW is:

  • 230 mm (5%) longer than the i30 hatch at 4,475 mm (i30 hatch is 4,245 mm)
  • 40 mm (6%) taller than the i30 hatch at 1,565 mm (i30 hatch is 1,480 mm)

The i30 CW has:
