Spy Shots: 2012 Hyundai Sonata Wagon

By Viknesh Vijayenthiran


September 9th, 2010

The stylish new 2011 Hyundai Sonata is just starting to hit roads all across the country but soon we’ll be seeing several other variants of the new four-door. We’re already seen the new 2011 Hyundai Sonata Hybrid that’s set to go on sale towards the end of the year and beyond that we’ll see an all new Sonata Wagon as well.

Due early next year as a 2012 model, the Sonata Wagon has been spotted once again in prototype form testing in Germany. Featuring a rakish profile and sloping rear hatch, the Sonata Wagon will be more lifestyle-oriented rather than practical but it should still be able to haul most of your family's gear.

Like the sedan variant, the new Sonata Wagon will be available with a pair of gasoline direct injection (GDI) four-cylinder engines, as well as an eventual gasoline-electric hybrid model.

The same car will go on sale in Europe labeled as the i40 and could possibly make its world debut at this month's 2010 Paris Auto Show, though it's more likely to be revealed at an auto show some time next year.

The story doesn’t end there as Hyundai is also reportedly working on a convertible version of the new Sonata; something to go up against the likes of the Toyota Solara and convertible versions of the Pontiac G6 and even the Chrysler Sebring.
