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.
- Lots of space and practicality
- Lots of hi-tech equipment
- Ford Mondeo more fun to drive
- Hyundai badge not desirable
- Not that cheap to buy
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 is now just one 1.7-litre diesel engine to choose from, in two power outputs. It's reasonably quick though, and can do an impressive 67mpg – which makes this one big car to look out for.
- Decent fuel economy
- Good value for money
- Roomy, well equipped interior
- Bold looks may not appeal to all
- Rivals are better to drive
- Badge lacks prestige
