What if Hyundai Launches a Elantra Wagon?

We don’t expect more bodystyles for the all-new Elantra (they even removed the Elantra GT hatchback from their US website since the launch of the All-New Elantra and its unkown if will return with the facelift of its european counterpart, the i30) but we noticed thanks to our colleagues at Motor1.com that SRK Designs made a sleek rendering of a Wagon Elantra.

While Hyundai is probably not planning an Elantra wagon, there is hope for a new model in this body style from the company’s luxury sub-brand as we have advanced. We’re talking about Genesis and a recent statement made by its global boss, William Lee. He recently said a G70 wagon is being actively considered, but it hasn’t been given the proverbial green light.

As much as we like the idea of an Elantra wagon, it’s unlikely to happen for two major reasons. Firstly, wagon sales are not exactly great in today’s SUV-obsessed world, and that’s especially true outside of Europe, therefore such a product would not have a solid business case. Secondly, it would clash with the i30 wagon that was recently updated with a mid-cycle facelift and a sporty-looking N Line model.

What do you think?
