The modifications are targeted to appeal to what fleet customers want. The new trim level – the SE Nav – offers a clear gap from the conventional SE models. It is equipped with Hyundai’s navigation system as standard. He also said that the new i40 will be available with Hyundai’s Blue Drive technologies with three engine options.
These include a 1.7-litre diesel that can produce 115PS with six speed manual transmission, a 1.7-litre diesel that delivers 141PS and six speed transmission, and a 1.7-litre diesel engine that delivers as much as 141PS with seven speed DCT. Design and engineering of the new i40 was done at the automaker’s R&D headquarters in Europe.
It features fresh styling, improved engines, a new transmission, better ride and handling, and a variety of new safety and convenience features.
Hyundai’s European design team made several modifications to the styling of New i40. Among the most significant changes are the redesigned front grille and front bumper, as well as reshaped front and rear lights. You may now order the new i40 at Hyundai showrooms throughout the UK. [source: Hyundai]
