Hyundai planning to offer a sporty version of the i40

Hyundai is considering the possibility of building a performance version of the Hyundai i40 as well as a new Hyundai i30 hot hatch, according to Allan Rushforth, Hyundai Europe’s chief operations officer. At the launch of the all-new i30, Rushforth said that Hyundai is forced to act on its quick growth in Europe with models that extend beyond its budget roots.

He said, “A Hyundai GTI? That’s not just a C-segment question [i30], but a D-segment [i40] one as well.” He said that there have been internal talks about such cars and they’re in consideration of versions that don’t only offer more performance but have improved ride and handling too.

He explained that Hyundai needs those cars in its goal to expand to become a “good value, reliable and low CO2 brand.” Recently, Hyundai confirmed that this summer will be the launch of a performance ‘Turbo’ version of its new Veloster coupe in Europe. For the first time, the car will bring turbocharging to its modern 1.6-litre four-cylinder ‘Gamma’ direct-injection petrol engine.

2011 Hyundai i40 ready to take on Europe’s midsize segment dominated by fleet sales

Hyundai’s trendy i40 has entered the midsized segment in Europe where it will attempt to attract as much sales as it could away from its rivals built by Volkswagen, Opel and Ford. The i40 was launched last July as a station wagon. Hyundai picked this body style since it makes up about 54 percent of the sales in the segment.

Towards the end of the year, Hyundai will launch a sleek, four-door sedan. The i40 is being relied on by Hyundai to raise European sales by 40 percent to 500,000 units by 2013. Hyundai Europe CEO Allan Rushforth said that the i40 “perfectly combines” the four elements that Hyundai considers as its core values.

These are styling, efficiency, practicality and performance. Hyundai has set a target for i40 to achieve an annual volume of 60,000 units from 2012 with 45 percent of sales made up of business customers (fleet sales). The midsized vehicles make up the fourth largest segment in Europe. Its sales dropped by 12.7 percent to 745,550 units last year.

Sedan version of Hyundai’s new i40 to be unveiled at Barcelona Auto Show

A sedan version of Hyundai’s new i40 will be revealed at the Barcelona auto show on May 12. The i40 is expected to enter Europe's upper-medium, or mid-sized, segment, where it will go up against cars like the Volkswagen Passat, Ford Mondeo and Opel/Vauxhall Insignia.

Before the debut of the sedan, the station wagon version had premiered at the Geneva auto show last March. The i40 sedan was designed and engineered at the Hyundai's European r&d headquarters in Ruesselsheim, Germany, where the wagon had its origins too.

According to Allan Rushforth, Hyundai Motor Europe’s senior vice president, they wanted to debut the i40 sedan in Barcelona since Spain has a very strong sedan market. In fact, it dominates nearly 40% of the mid-sized segment.

The all-new, Europe-specific D-segment model from Hyundai -- the i40 – made its world premiere at the Geneva Motor Show. Hyundai’s R&D headquarters in Rüsselsheim, Germany, designed and engineered the i40 to comply with the tough demands of European retail and fleet buyers. At the show, the i40 is in tourer form.

Hyundai hopes that with i40, it is able to make premium quality accessible to everyone, in line with its ‘modern premium’ philosophy. Several features on the i40 are not yet offered on some rival cars, including heated, folding rear seats; an auto-defog system that automatically detects and clears mist on the windscreen; and a heated steering wheel.

In addition, the i40 is indicative of Hyundai’s commitment to global leadership in eco-friendly technology, as its 1.7-litre ‘U-II’ diesel engine emits just 113 g/km of CO2 – a best-in-class figure. The ‘Nu’ 2.0-litre petrol engine also debuted. It offers higher torque for enhanced driveability. It also delivers improved fuel economy, reduced emissions, and it gave greater refinement and durability compared to the outgoing 2.0-litre unit.

Hyundai released today the first photos with the all-new 2011 i40, a new car which will make its world debut in March, at the 2011 Geneva Motor Show. According to Hyundai, this is firm’s first D-segment vehicle to be developed specifically for the European market. The new car will make its debut as an estate, while the saloon version will be revealed later this year, probably at the 2011 Frankfurt Motor Show.

The car was designed in Rüsselsheim, Germany and as you can see from the photos it takes cues from Hyundai’s ‘fluidic sculpture’ design language.

Some of the new features which will be seen on the i40 are heated and reclining front and rear seats; a heated steering wheel; and an active de-mist system that automatically detects and clears mist on the windscreen. Under the hood we will find a fuel-efficient 1.7-litre diesel engine, codenamed ‘UII’, which will emit just 113 g/km of CO2 emissions.

These are the first official photos of Hyundai’s upcoming i40 CW, the wagon variant of the i40 that will be shown at the 2011 Geneva Auto Show in March. Not a lot of details are available about the model but according to our sources, the vehicle will measure 4.77 meters in length, 1.81 meters in width and will have a wheelbase of 2.72 meters.

It’s also believed that its engine lineup consists of two CRDI and GDI versions currently offered on the Kia Optima.

Hyundai is considering a third option: a hybrid version borrowed from the Sonata. There had been rumors that the i40 wagon will be equipped with the same engines on the i40 sedan.

The i40, Hyundai's response to the Ford Mondeo, will benefit from the energy efficiency technology that's prominently displayed in the carmaker‚ radical i-Flow Concept at the Geneva Motor Show.

The concept is equipped with an intelligent grille that controls the amount of air cooling for the engine. The model also has regenerative braking, a thermo-electric generator around the catalyst that provides power for ancillary services and an insulated engine that should keep sufficient heat overnight to restart the next morning at 40deg C.

This means that fuel consumption is greatly reduced due to the frictional effect of cold oil. Hyundai anticipates that these technologies will gradually be added to the i40, which will be available with stop-start from launch.
