Hyundai’s i40 is a family-sized estate car. South Korean car manufacturer reckons it can attract retail customers to this Tourer (estate) version with a killer blend of price, specification, attractive styling and outstanding fuel economy.

The i40 features Hyundai’s now-signature hexagonal grille and large, chiselled front bumper, alongside the familiar swooping body contours and high-waisted window line. Other features include the Style trim level including cruise control, satnav, dual-zone air-con, a parking camera, folding mirrors, stop/start, privacy glass and automatic wipers.

Power for the i40 comes courtesy of either a 2.0-litre GDI petrol from Hyundai’s ‘Nu’ engine family or a 1.7-litre common-rail direct-injection four-cylinder turbo-diesel – both of which can be paired to either a six-speed manual gearbox (entry-level Active variants only) or six-speed automatic transmission with standard paddle-shifters behind the steering wheel. It also produces 100kW of power and 330Nm (between 2000 and 2500rpm), or 320Nm when paired with the six-speed automatic.

The car also includes a vehicle stability management system (VSM) which Hyundai claims can manage the safety systems more effectively by automatically applying them as needed, as well as providing counter-steering assistance for the driver in emergency situation.

This new Hyundai i40 also fitted with no fewer than 9 airbags – driver and front passenger, front and rear thorax, side curtain and driver’s knee bag – and anti-whiplash front headrests.

There’s plenty of space and the seat-folding mechanism is simple enough; with them collapsed you get 1,719 litres of space.

In short, this handsome car is spacious, comfortable and well equipped.
