The Mercury Cars Guide : March 21st 2009
8— CARSguide Classifieds 62 300 400 • carsguide.com.au Hyundai spaces-out with its new wagon T HE hatch was the cars- Guide car of the year in 2007. NowHyundai is following up the success of its best-selling Euro-styled i30 hatch with a family friendly wagon called the i30cw. The newest Hyundai is $1500 more than the hatch and Hyundai is confident it will be a runaway success like the five-door hatch. Engines choices are a 1.6-litre four-cylinder and 1.6-litre four- cylinder CRDi turbo-diesel. Launched this month, the i30cw is based on the hatch, but slightly longer, delivering wagon practical- ity and flexibility. Twomodels will be available, the SX and SLX, and for a short time a launch-edition Sportswagon is on sale. The auto-only Sportswagon uses a 1.6-litre petrol engine and shares its name with the popular Hyundai Lantra Sportswagon models from the ’90s. Hyundai Australia chief execu- tive Steve Yeo expects the company will sell about 500 Sportswagon models said it may become a permanent part of the lineup. The i30 Sportswagon has 17-inch alloys with chrome inserts, side repeaters in the outside mirrors, iPod, USB and auxiliary connectiv- ity, six-speakers, leather interior, six airbags and stability control. Yeo said space is the wagon’s big selling point. At 4475mm, the cw is 230mm longer than the hatch and sits on a 50mm longer wheelbase, which translates to much more room. The wagon is 40mm taller than the hatch and the luggage area has 415 litres of space with the rear seats up and 1395 litres with the rear seats folded. Like the hatch, the wagon gets electronic stability control, traction control, anti-skid brakes and active headrests and a five-star crash rating. The SLX and Sportswagon add driver and front-passenger-side air- bags and curtain airbags, which are optional on SX models. All wagons get a full-size spare with an alloy spare in the SLX and Sportswagon. Thei30cw gains Hyundai’s active locking system, called HALO, which automatically locks all doors when car reaches 40km/h. The doors automatically unlock when the key is removed from the ignition and front seat occupants can override the system. Hyundai director of sales and marketing Kevin McCann is confi- dent thewagon will repeat the sales success of the hatch. ‘‘The hatch was the fourth best MEGA Vehicle Auction Today at 10.30am Featuring latemodel vehicles with good kms!

By comparison, SUVs make up 21 per cent of the market, but there are signs this is plateauing. Mann said he believes the i30 wagon has the ability to lure disenchanted buyers from larger off-roaders because of its space, practicality and compact size. ‘‘But it’s still a roomy car.’’ Stars: ??½ out of 5 NEIL McDONALD ROOMY: Hyundai’s 2010 i30cw.
