The Hyundai i30 Wagon Will be Sold in the U.S. as the 2008 Elantra Wagon

Hyundai has announced plans to sell its new i30 wagon in the U.S. sometime in early 2008. The 2008 Hyundai Elantra Wagon will be positioned as a “sporty handling vehicle” according to Wayne Killen, director of product planning at Hyundai Motor America.

The U.S. version will not use the same engines as the European version, which uses 1.6L engines. The U.S. spec car will use the same 1.8L 138 horsepower 2.0L four-cylinder as the Elantra sedan. Either a 5-speed manual or 4-speed auto are the transmission choices.
