Sweet Wagons You Can't Get In The US, Voll. 430


In a sure sign that Hyundai is reaching for a new level of sophistication and quality in its family car design, it is preparing to unveil an awesome-looking new, European-designed wagon--which won't be available in the US. Just like everyone else!

The i40 will debut at Geneva. PR-happy renderings have been "leaked."

Is it just me or does this thing look more like a Venza than a sweet wagon?

no, it's not you, it's a Venza clone

Except if it's based on the Sonata, it will only be about 3/4 the size of a Venza, and the Sonata is a genuinely good-looking car, which is not something you can say about anything Toyota has put out in recent memory.

And the Venza (like the Highlander and Lexus RX before it) does everything it can to hide the fact that it's a Camry wagon. This appears to be an honest wagon. Promising in Europe but you can understand their choice not to try selling it in the states.
