The current 308's more conservative approach makes it feel more like a French Golf when compared to the old 308.


Old 308


*The 3-door versions of the 205 and 306 had thick-triangular C-pillars because they had long sloping rear liftgates.




Same here, Peugeot was the first thing that came to mind when I saw it.
I'm starting to like the new i30, it looks good from this angle.

The less angular Tucson's grille would have looked better on this,
Im the opposite, the more I look at it the clunkier it looks. The metal looks cheap and everything has been designed not to offend or even start a conversation. The 308 looks so much more premium. That angled 3rd window is driving me mad as well.

This, plus the Corolla GTI, are both welcome additions to the U.S. market. :)

I've been reading that the i30 is based on a different chassis than is the notchback Elantra. Is this a good or bad thing...?

And here now officially shown: The Wagon



IMO looking better than the hatchback, and the slightly faster angle of the 3rd side window does make it more elegant than most compact wagons. Wheelbase remains unchanged, the rear overhang gains 24,5 cm, which enables a class leading 602l minimum boot volume, that can be extended to 1650l, again beating most compact wagons (and some mid sizers).

meh... it looks as generic (and old) as pre-facelifted Pug 508 SW...



though I agree that it looks better than hatchback, because you can find hints of far less models than on hatchback, where you can find traces of everything from C4, Auris, 308, Golf, up to Mazda and even A3...
the best part of it for me is basically down to the fact that they finally got rid of that "AIWA mini hi-fi" central column in the interior...

Definitely better resolved than the hatch, and an improvement on the current generation wagon (although I prefer the look of the current hatch to the new one). Looks decent.

Wow...just wow. Almost a clone, isn't it?

The wagon is tasteful but dull.

Even more interesting since so many thought the i30 was so similar to the 309. o they have an ex PSA designer working there?

Indeed, but I'm fine w/ that.

I disagres that it looks dated.

And, yes, a dead-ringer for the Peugeot!
