Hyundai reveals prices for i40 saloon
Hyundai’s new i40 Saloon will cost from £17,395 when it goes on UK sale on 5th January.
The car will join the i40 Tourer, launched earlier this year, in showrooms.
Hyundai has also revealed that insurance ratings for the car will start from Group 12E.
There will initially be three engine choices, a 1.6-litre petrol of 133bhp and a 1.7 diesel offered in 114 or 134bhp variants.
The saloon will be offered in the same three Active, Style and Premium trim levels as the i40 Tourer.
Hyundai’s Blue Drive eco technologies, which include Intelligent Stop & Go, come as standard on all Active derivatives, and on the 134bhp versions of the Style and Premium 1.7 CRDi in Blue Drive designation.
These two produce CO2 emissions of just 119g/km, which Hyundai says will see them offer the lowest ‘Benefit in Kind’(BIK) cost in class for key diesel derivatives and thus prove very attractive to the fleet market.
Standard on all cars are 16-inch alloy wheels, Bluetooth connectivity with voice recognition, leather steering wheel with audio controls, electric heated door mirrors with integrated LED indicators, electric front and rear windows and an electric parking brake with automatic hold function.
Style variants gain touch-screen satellite navigation with a rear view camera, front and rear parking sensors, cruise control and dual zone climate control.
The Premium models add leather upholstery, a panoramic sunroof, keyless entry and supervision instrument cluster with LCD colour display as standard.
According to Hyundai UK MD Tony Whitehorn the i40 has been designed and engineered specifically for Europe, ensuring its relevance in the market place.
“It will broaden the appeal of the i40 range to buyers in the D-segment by offering a unique, value for money, customer proposition,” he adds.
