2015 Hyundai i40 - price, specs and release date

Hyundai i40 is refreshed for 2015 with styling and engine updates, and the latest in-car technology.

The Hyundai i40 Saloon and Tourer have undergone a raft of revisions for 2015. The large family car gets an updated design inside and out, engine improvements and interior updates.

In an attempt to draw buyers’ attention away from the new Ford Mondeo and Volkswagen Passat, the 2015 Hyundai i40 has the brand’s new trademark grille with a smart hexagonal design reminiscent of the new Audi TT. There are also new alloy wheel designs and paint finishes to complete the look.

Hyundai is also aiming the new i40 at company car-drivers. Tony Whitehorn, president and CEO of Hyundai Motor UK, said the new model helps the brand’s range have “a fresher and more dynamic look,” which should “appeal particularly to the requirements of our fleet customers.”

The engine line-up still consists of just two versions of the same 1.7-litre CRDI diesel. The more powerful one gets a small power boost to 139bhp and is claimed to be more responsive at lower engine speeds. The less powerful diesel’s output is unchanged, at 113bhp.

Both engines should see efficiency and fuel economy improve, thanks to the addition of a stop-start system, low-resistance tyres, a new alternator system and clever flaps in the front grille that close to improve aerodynamics.

Hyundai has also tweaked the car’s handling with the addition of an advanced traction-control system that provides better traction and stability. The Tourer estate now has adaptive rear suspension for heavier boot loads. Lane-keeping assistance and auto-dipping headlights are also available.

Interior materials have been upgraded, with a redesigned touchscreen navigation and audio system featuring DAB digital radio for the first time. There’s also a new LCD driver information display between the dials also.

All models, starting with the entry-level S trim, feature Bluetooth connectivity with voice control, automatic headlights and air-conditioning. Along with touchscreen satellite navigation, the mid-range SE Nav (priced from £21,600) throws in cruise control, dual-zone climate control, all-round parking sensors and the aforementioned DAB radio.

The top-of-the-range Premium, starting at £25,600, is treated to a more luxurious cabin and additional safety kit – nine airbags are as standard, as is the lane-departure system mentioned earlier.

The revised i40 range is available to order now, priced from £19,600.
