The All New i40: Style meets practicality
Not only does the i40 offer a package of powertrains, equipment and technology tailored for European tastes but by taking a new approach to the medium family car market, Hyundai has created a new model that sets new standards. The i40 carves out a bold new identity of its own by embodying Hyundai’s new concept of ‘modern premium’ – the philosophy that premium quality and characteristics should be accessible to everyone. This is reflected in everything from design and performance to practicality and technology features.
To emphasise the company’s unique approach to the market, Hyundai has taken the initiative to launch the Tourer model first.
Designed and engineered at Hyundai’s R&D headquarters in Rüsselsheim, Germany, the i40 is the latest embodiment of Hyundai’s ‘fluidic sculpture’ design language that has been the inspiration for award-winning models such as the ix35 and ix20. Signature features seen on these cars such as the hexagonal grille and the flowing lines inspired by nature are a key element of the i40 design along with details such as the jewel-like headlamps and wing-shaped fog lights, giving a contemporary, confident look.
This is complemented by an interior that has been conceived for a sculpted appearance and optimised ergonomics whilst still offering enhanced versatility and cargo capacity.
Thanks to its generous wheelbase (2770 mm) and overall width (1815 mm), the i40 Tourer offers impressive cabin space. Front seat occupants benefit from best-in-class dimensions for head (1025 mm), leg (1170 mm) and shoulder room (1455 mm). Rear seat passengers also gain from rear headroom and the unique bonus of reclining seats while an optional three-piece, full-width panoramic glass sunroof helps to further enhance the spaciousness and premium feel of the model.
Cargo capacity sets new ground, with figures ranging from 553 litres, up to 1719 litres with the rear seats folded down. The i40 Tourer also facilitates loading and unloading with the lowest floor level in the D-segment – just 592 mm from the ground.
