3.5 out of 5

The Hyundai i40 Tourer is a diesel-only range, resulting in good fuel economy for drivers covering large annual mileages.

Although the i40 represents good value for money, especially when factoring the amount of standard equipment, it won’t retain as much of its value when you come to sell it. Experts say it’ll retain around 36% of its purchase price after three years or 36,000 miles. Although that matches the Vauxhall Insignia Sports Tourer, it’s no match for the Ford Mondeo estate (38% of its value retained), Toyota Avensis Tourer (42%) or Volkswagen Passat estate (43%).

Hyundai i40 Tourer MPG & CO2

Two versions of the same 1.7-litre engine are available in the Hyundai i40 Tourer. The entry-level engine produces 114bhp and is available with a six-speed manual gearbox only, while the 139bhp is offered with a choice of the same manual or a seven-speed automatic. The 114bhp version is claimed to be capable of 67.3mpg, with CO2 emissions of 110g/km meaning its Benefit-in-Kind (BiK) rate for company-car drivers is 27%.

The 139bhp version is only marginally more costly to run when specified with a manual gearbox. Hyundai says it’ll return 65.7mpg, while CO2 emissions climb to 114g/km – but that increase is small enough not to cost any more in BiK. Choose the 139bhp with an automatic gearbox and the cost of ownership goes up significantly. Fuel economy falls to 60.1mpg, while CO2 emissions climb to 123g/km, pushing BiK up to 29%.

Road tax is £140 per year for all models.

Insurance

The less powerful version of the i40 Tourer falls into insurance groups 13 to 14, while the more powerful model is in groups 18 to 20. Even so, that’s significantly less than it’ll cost to insure a Toyota Avensis Tourer or Vauxhall Insignia Sports Tourer.

Servicing

The i40 Tourer only needs servicing every 20,000 miles or 12 months, whichever comes sooner. That’s longer than the average interval of around 12,000 miles. Hyundai also lets you pay for servicing with a one-off up-front fee. Owners can choose from two, three or five-year plans, costing around £400, £500 and £800 respectively.

Warranty

Every Hyundai is covered by a five-year/unlimited-mileage warranty that’s fully transferable to subsequent owners. New Hyundais also come with five years’ breakdown cover and five years of annual vehicle health checks.
