This i40 ruthlessly ticks all the boxes required for success in the medium range Mondeo marketplace.
It’s smart, spacious, frugal, well equipped and beautifully built. It is, in short, a very competitive car indeed. And is now offered with even more equipment at the top of the range.
Cars like this are primarily used as business tools and family transport, with the occasional backroad blitz.
The first two things will be comfortably accommodated by this i40 and you’ll be as well set up on the twisty way home as you would be in any of the more dynamically able cars in this sector.
But perhaps one of the things that impresses most about this car is its refinement, an area Hyundai has thought long and hard about. They’ve
thrown everything at this issue: air-permeable carpet, sound-absorbing layers around the engine - even textile wheel arch liners. It’s all enough to make this a very quiet car indeed.
If you’re basing your choice of car in this sector on sheer common sense, this i40 is a car you can’t ignore. New thinking, new possibilities - just as
