Hyundai admits the estate will be more popular than the saloon version of the i40, but there’s still plenty going for the four-door.
The Active trim level comes with enough kit to make it an affordable option without being basic. It comes with alloy wheels, air-conditioning, Bluetooth connectivity, steering wheel-mounted stereo controls and automatic lights and wipers. The Style trim is not huge amounts more, though, and adds satellite navigation, a parking camera and sensors.
The 1.6-litre petrol model and the two diesels are all available in both standard and Blue Drive form – the latter incorporates engine stop-start technology, which helps cuts fuel consumption and CO2 emissions and only for a small amount more cash.
Like all Hyundais, the i40 comes with the company’s Five Year Triple Care package, which includes a five-year warranty, five years’ roadside assistance and five years of annual vehicle health checks.
