Hyundai i40

The largest car in the 'i' range is the Hyundai i40, which is available as a saloon or Tourer estate. It's designed to take on models such as the Ford Mondeo and VW Passat, and the Hyundai i40 is extremely well built, drives superbly, has excellent levels of standard equipment and comes with a great selection of powerful yet efficient engines. Add to that great value for money and Hyundai's 5-year warranty, and it's one of the best family cars currently on sale.

The Hyundai i40 is thinking big – in every way. The Korean manufacturer offers estate and saloon versions that appeal to families and company car buyers alike, by offering plenty of space and excellent economy on top of its stylish exterior and high-quality inside. There are a range of diesel and petrol engines available in the Hyundai i40 line-up, with our favourite being the 1.7-litre diesel. It's quick, and can do an impressive 62mpg – which makes this one big car to look out for.
