The new model is going to be offered in both saloon and estate vehicle forms and both offer a great value for money. The i40 was first produced in 2011 with sales beginning in 2012 and this new model is set to mark the second generation of the car. It has proven to be a success amongst buyers looking for a good family car and we believe that the new model set to launch this year is certainly going to be no different. With a new model, you can of course expect to find some new changes brought to the vehicle and our post today has you covered with everything you need to know.
What do you need to know about the new Hyundai i40?
So to kick us off here we are going to check out the engine range that will come along with the car. Well the good news here is that if you're a fan of diesels, the new i40 could be ideal for you. Just the one diesel engine is offered with the i40 but it can however be chosen with two different power outputs depending on which you prefer. A 1.7 CRDi giving out 113bhp is your first option with entry level models. The top engine though is available in the top spec Premium trim level with the same engine being included but giving out power of 139 bhp.
There are multiple trim levels to spend your money on and the equipment to come along with the vehicle depends on which you choose to buy. Entry level equipment though includes the likes of automatic headlights,a steering wheel made from leather,sixteen inch alloy wheels and Bluetooth connectivity. Mid range trims also throw in a DAB digital radio,heated seating, a touch screen sat nav,a keyless start system and a rear view camera. These are all spread between the SE Nav and SE Nav Business trims. Top range Premium however includes eighteen inch alloy wheels, a panoramic sunroof,heated seating at the back of the car and a lane departure warning system.
Who are the biggest rivals for the new i40?
When we look at the kind of challenges that the new i40 will face, in the past we have seen the car lock horns with the likes of the Jetta from Volkswagen and the Kia Optima just to name a few. With the generous level of equipment on offer and even though there is only the one diesel engine, we see this rivalry continuing with the second generation model. A price tag of £19,600 has been confirmed to kick of the range with entry level models.
