Hyundai I40 Overview

Interior styling is attractive with controls that are bold and easy to use, even if the dashboard may look a little overcomplicated at first. The driving seat can be made comfortable with electrically adjustable seats, and legroom is plentiful throughout the cabin. The boot is very large and can be made even bigger by folding the rear seats flat.

The i40 boasts an excellent level of standard equipment, as most Hyundais do. Entry level models come complete with alloy wheels, Bluetooth connectivity, air conditioning and steering wheel-mounted controls.


The Hyundai i40 was unveiled in 2011.

It was available first as a 5-door estate, and later as a 4-door saloon.

The model received an excellent five star safety rating in the Euro NCAP crash tests in 2011.

A BlueDrive option is available which features stop/start technology and boasts reduced emissions.


The Hyundai i40 delivers a smooth and refined ride and comes complete with a generous amount of equipment. The car has a spacious interior and represents good value for money. It makes a great family vehicle.
