Look wise there is close similarity between the i30 hatchback and the i30 Wagon. Both have similar front. The Wagon being a little longer looks like a stretched i30 hatch. At the front there is the same grille in hexagonal shape with the new generation jewel shaped headlamps and if parked side by side any onlooker will mistake it with the hatch. The real difference appears if it is seen from the sides, starting from the B Pillar the difference gets more pronounced and towards the rear and tail part. The roofline is extended with tehincrease in length and it extends to the cargo area that can also be used for passenger seating as well.
