One fact is immediately and pleasingly obvious when you look at and drive the new Hyundai i40 Tourer Wagon. It’s designed and engineered at Hyundai’s European headquarters in Germany with all the quality and style those terrific Teutons can throw at it – and it shows.
The i40 dishes up a mid-size wagon that features European styling, exceptional standard features and quality fit and finish across the model range.
Good looking European style
The profile of the i40 features a strong character line that extends from the top of the front wheel arch to the rear combination lamp, giving the i40 a strong yet sleek road presence. Drivers will also love the premium look of the LED daytime running headlights and LED rear tail lights.
The good looks don’t just end on the outside either – stepping inside, the i40 Tourer feels spacious, and the large dash is covered in soft touch plastics that look and feel great.
For gadget fans, the i40 Tourer doesn’t disappoint. It comes standard with Bluetooth hands-free operation, MP3 capable CD player with full iPod compatibility, USB and auxiliary inputs.
A responsive, quiet engine for a relaxing drive
Featuring 100 kW of power and 320 Nm torque, the 1.7 litre diesel engine is very responsive under throttle and delivers the torque very smoothly with next to no turbo lag. Along with the fact that there is very little engine noise, this makes the i40 a very enjoyable and relaxing drive.
Stellar safety ratings and fuel efficiency
Another plus is the exceptional fuel efficiency, and Hyundai has really outdone themselves with the i40 Tourer. You’ll use just 5.6-litres per 100km – that’s over 1400km on a single tank!
For peace of mind, the i40 Tourer has an ANCAP 5-star safety rating, achieved through a host of safety features that include Vehicle Stability Management, Electronic Stability Control, Traction Control System, ABS with EBD & Brake Assist System, Cornering Brake Control and Hill-start Assist Control. The i40 Tourer is also fitted with nine airbags as standard on all models, so it’s the perfect choice for a safe, all-round family car.
