Hyundai has announced the official pricing and specification for its new i40 family saloon and estate model. It also says that the most efficient model produces just 110g/km of CO2. The revised i40 has been designed and engineered at the Korean company’s European HQ. It benefits from refreshed styling, upgraded engines, a new transmission, improved ride and handling and a range of new safety and convenience features.

As part of the face-lift, the company has made a number of changes to the styling of the i40. This is most notable around the front grille, flanked by reshaped front lights, and a re-profiled bumper. At the other end, the rear lights have also been redesigned.

Two engines are available across the i40, both 1.7-litre diesel units. The entry-level engine produces 113bhp and is mated to a six-speed manual gearbox whilst the more powerful 139bhp version is available with both the manual ‘box as well as a seven-speed DCT.

The entry-level i40 S saloon costs £19,600 and comes equipped with 16-inch alloy wheels, Bluetooth connectivity, air conditioning, a leather wrapped multi-function steering wheel and auto lights and wipers

A new trim model is the SE Nav which, as the name suggests, features Hyundai’s touchscreen satellite with rear-view parking camera and parking guidance system. It costs from £21,600 and adds DAB digital radio, auto diming rear view mirror, climate control with auto defog, heated front seats, LED front fog lights and a seven-speaker sound system.

For £23,100, you can select the SE Nav Business which adds keyless smart entry with start/stop button and driver’s seat memory function.

The range-topping Premium costs from £25,600 and gets larger 18-inch alloy wheels, a panoramic sunroof with an electric tilt and slide functions, luggage net, super vision instrument cluster with LCD colour display, and lane-departure warning.

The new i40 is available to be ordered now from Hyundai’s network of dealers.
