Hyundai i40 Saloon prices annouced
Hyundai's Ford Mondeo rival - the 2012 i40 Saloon, will be priced from £17,395.
Prices for the Hyundai i40 Saloon will start from £17,395 for the entry-level 1.6 GDi Blue Drive model and stretch to £24,895 for the range-topping 1.7 CRDi Premium.
Available to order in January 2012, the four-door medium-sized saloon will start from insurance Group 12E and come in the same three main trim levels as the i40 Tourer: Active, Style and Premium.
Boasting very competitive 'Benefit in Kind' costs for company car users the i40 will be available with two engines, offering three different power outputs and either manual or automatic transmissions.
All Active and specific Blue Drive economy models feature Hyundai's fuel saving stop/start technology providing emissions of 119g/km of CO2.
A Hyundai spokesperson commented, “The stylish saloon version shares the same qualities found in the i40 Tourer - offering outstanding levels of fuel-efficiency, comfort, quality, and a high level of standard equipment all at an accessible price. It will broaden the appeal of the i40 range to buyers in the D-segment by offering a unique, value for money, customer proposition.”
The list of standard equipment is very impressive. Mid-range Style models receive touch screen sat-nav systems with rear view camera, front and rear parking sensors, cruise control and dual-zone air conditioning.
Premium trim models gain leather seats, sunroof and keyless entry with an LCD colour instrument cluster.
There are also generous levels of safety features fitted on all i40 Saloons with all models getting seven airbags as standard as well as a host of high-tech gadgets that prevent the car rolling back on hill starts or that add maximum braking pressure in the event of an emergency stop.
As with all Hyundais, the i40 Saloon comes with the brand's Five Year Triple Care warranty.
