New Hyundai i40 Saloon

Choose style and substance with the Hyundai i40 Saloon: one of the marque’s most sophisticated cars in its line-up of family-friendly models.


The i40 has a svelte body shape that’s defined by flowing lines and deep chisels. Following a coupé-like roofline, it has an elegant look with a sporty punchiness at the front thanks to the large grille and complex headlights. Most of the models come with a matte black finish on the grille, while the Premium features striking chrome inserts. LED daytime running lights are a standard feature, as are projection headlamps. At 4.74 metres in length, it’s compact for a saloon, making it suitable for city living and enjoyable to drive around narrow streets.

Relaxation is encouraged in the i40 Saloon. All but the entry level trims come with heated front seats and steering wheel, as well as chrome finishing on the dashboard for extra style. Choose the Premium to enjoy swathes of sunlight with a panoramic roof featuring electric tilt and slide functions. Five adults can sit comfortably in the car and a 525-litre boot provides plenty of space for carrying luggage.

Performance and drive

Much like the interior design, the drive offers plenty of comfort so you can relax on every journey. It has a smooth drive that minimises the feel of bumps or jolts in the road. Choose from two 1.7-litre diesel engines: one with a 113bhp output and the other with 139bhp. The latter of the two can be mated to an automatic gearbox as well as the standard manual. Cruise control is included on the SE Nav and upwards, taking the stress out of your ankles along the motorway.

Technology and safety

Using the Bluetooth® connectivity, which is a standard feature on every i40 Saloon, you can make calls on the go. Choose the upgraded SE Nav variant and you can also use smartphone apps through a touchscreen that boasts satellite navigation. This trim level comes with a rear camera and parking guidance system too, making every moment of your journey much easier.

ESC and a Vehicle Stability Management programme help you to maintain a steady drive at all times in the i40 Saloon. Hill start assist makes it easier to pull out of junctions on an incline, while the Lane Departure Warning system (on the Premium) prevents you veering on the motorway.
