Back in December Hyundai released teaser images of the company’s first mid-sized vehicle developed for the European market – the i40. Along with those teaser images came the announcement that Hyundai wouldn’t be releasing an i40 sedan any time soon.
Instead the first version of the i40 that we’ll see is the i40 wagon … and a very nice looking wagon it is too.
The i40 also comes with an impressive array of features as standard equipment … including features that haven’t been found in this segment before. Standard equipment on the i40 include heated and reclining front and rear seats; a heated steering wheel; and an active de-mist system that automatically detects and clears condensation on the windscreen.
The Hyundai i40 will also come with the option of a diesel engine … the new 1.7-litre diesel engine that Hyundai has been developing that develops just 113 grams per km of CO2.
We’ll see more of the Hyundai i40 at the Geneva motor show in March.
