Although Hyundai took the wraps off of the wagon version of its European-spec i40 model back in March, the automaker waited until this week to unveil the more traditional four-door i40 sedan.

Illustrating its importance to the European market, the wagon was unveiled at the massive Geneva Motor Show, while the sedan bowed at the smaller Barcelona Motor Show today.

Set to compete in Europe’s D-segment, the i40 will go on sale soon across Europe in both configurations.

Isn't that a Ford roof on this vehicle? Looks that way on the sedan.

From some angles, this car looks like a big Focus... the front quarter, the roof and the rear quarter window...
