Early in September 2011, the Hyundai i40 Tourer will be in showrooms, with the four door saloon following later in the year.
Three trim levels are available for the Hyundai i40 Tourer, Active, Style and Premium, with three engine options, four power outputs and manual or automatic transmission. Active models all come with Hyundai's Blue Drive technologies which includes stop-start. The Hyundai i40 Style 1.7 CRDi 136PS Blue Drive model boasts CO2 emissions of 119g/km.
Hyundai expects the 1.7 litre 136PS diesel engine to be the most popular with private and fleet buyers. The petrol unit is Hyundai's all new four-cylinder 2.0 litre GDI engine.
With the Hyundai i40, Hyundai is specifically targeting the fleet market, with a lead-in price of just under £18,400, 13 per cent benefit in kind, low insurance and class leading contract hire rates.
Hyundai UK boss Tony Whitehorn said: "It's an estate car but it doesn't look it - the look is dynamic but it is still a very capable load carrier.
"The brand has been evolving over the past few model introductions. The first step change was the i30 which was our first European-designed vehicle, and this was followed by the i10 and i20.
"The next step with the ix35 which brought more style and emotion to Hyundai, now we are into stage three with the launch of the i40 Tourer which will be followed by the saloon and the Veloster later in the year."
