Ten Second Review

If there was one truism with Hyundais of the past, it was that the bigger the car became, the less competitive it would be. The brand's impressive i40 is a medium range Mondeo-sized challenger that comprehensively knocks that kind of thinking into touch. Offering accessible pricing and plenty of space and equipment isn't anything new for the Korean company but the quality of finish and the maturity of the styling on offer here certainly is. With extra equipment now on offer further up the range, this is certainly one to consider if you've never before thought about a Korean car from this segment.

Background

We don't tend to think of large Hyundais as being especially desirable - but the South Korean maker is determined that we should. Their smaller models make more sense on paper than those of most rivals, but the larger and pricier a car becomes, the bigger is the role played by badge equity. Which, with this maker, has been slowly building in recent years as buyers realise this to be a brand beyond the bargain basement, a marque capable of producing tempting Mondeo-class medium range models like this one, the i40. Just a glance at this car is enough to suggest that the step up it will represent over its unremarkable Sonata predecessor will be vast. But that step will need to be seismic if Hyundai is to get on terms with Vauxhall Insignias, Volkswagen Passats, Peugeot 508s and Renault Lagunas battling Ford's Mondeo in the medium range market. In a segment splintering sales to People Carriers, Crossovers and MPVs, it's no longer enough simply to offer a 'good product'. Executive quality is now the norm, an attribute previously unfamiliar to Hyundai motorists. To be able to deliver this, as well as class-leading practicality and low running costs alongside more typical Hyundai virtues of strong value and high specification, is asking for quite a car. Whether that car is a saloon or 'Tourer' estate with an 'i40' badge on the boot is what we're about to find out.

Driving Experience

Most buyers will be looking at one of the 1.7-litre CRDi models offering either 115 or 136PS. In some respects, the smaller of the two units feels slightly quicker, its maximum pulling power arriving earlier in the rev range. That's because the pokier diesel has longer gearing, a benefit you appreciate at motorway speeds where it's a little quieter. Sixty from rest occupies 12.9s in the 115PS model on the way to 118mph, figures that improve to 10.6s and 124mph thanks to the 325Nm of torque you get in the 136PS variant. In comparison, the entry-level 135PS 1.6-litre GDI petrol model slots in between these two, recording the sixty sprint in 11.6s on the way to 121mph. I can't really see the point of going beyond this version to the 2.0 GDI petrol flagship model. Its 177PS output promises much but ultimately, it feels little faster than its stablemates, for the record on paper delivering sixty in 9.7s en route to 132mph. Transmission choice includes a 6-speed automatic with steering wheel-mounted paddles but it's not an especially responsive unit and this standard 6-speed manual will for most be the more satisfying choice. 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, though some might find the rather artificial heaviness in this car's steering a little disconcerting at first. 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.

Design and Build

'Fluidic sculpture' sounds as if it should create an elegant result. Here, it has. Heavily influenced by Hyundai's Frankfurt R&D centre, this is a design you'd never have seen from a Korean brand until a few years ago. The hexagonal front grille is shaped like a diamond, the headlights surrounding it modelled on those of a bird of prey and containing hook-shaped strips of LEDs that glow white in daylight. It's neatly styled at the rear too, with a smart chrome strip between the lights and an integral spoiler above the rear window of this 'Tourer' version. It's this estate that most UK customers will probably want rather than the alternative saloon variant, especially as Hyundai isn't bothering to offer a five-door hatch. Equal efforts have been expended upon the stylised interior with its neat graphics, faux aluminium detailing, classy high-definition display screen and nice design touches. There's plenty of soft-touch plastic too, though that doesn't extend to things like the door-pulls and the door skins. Only the shiny column stalks remain as a reminder of the cheap-feeling Hyundai interiors of old. Finding an ideal driving position isn't a chore, though it's rather too easy to bash your knuckles with downward gearchanges when these central cupholders are in use. At the rear, there's comfortable space for two even with two six-footers up-front and room at a squash for three - pretty par for the course in this class: only a Mondeo offers more. Headroom's good, even if you're in one of the plushest models that have a huge panoramic glass sunroof fitted. It is though a pity that the thickness of the seat bases makes it difficult for rear seat passengers to slide their feet underneath. Any estate car stands or falls by the amount of gear it can carry and the i40 Tourer passes that test without breaking sweat. With the rear seats in place, there's a cavernous 553 litres available - more than you'd get in a comparable Ford Mondeo or Vauxhall Insignia - only estate versions of the Volkswagen Passat and Skoda Superb offer more.

Market and Model

Hyundai has intentionally pitched i40 pricing beneath that of obvious rivals - but not by as much as you might perhaps think. Expect to pay somewhere in the £18,500 to £29,000 bracket, with a premium of around £1,000 for the 'Tourer' estate version that I'm looking at here, the variant that will account of over 60% of total sales. Whichever saloon or Tourer i40 derivative you choose - 1.6 or 2.0-litre petrol GDI or either lower or higher-powered 1.7-litre CRDi diesel derivatives - you won't be paying much more than you would be for a decently engine and specced Focus-sized family hatchback. And few rivals of any shape or size are likely to be better equipped. Even entry-level i40 models include alloy wheels, Bluetooth connectivity with voice recognition, a leather-covered steering wheel with audio controls, electric heated door mirrors with integrated LED indicators, all-round electric windows and a hill-holder clutch to stop you drifting backwards on uphill junctions. Most customers will be opting for the mid-spec models that include things like touch-screen satellite navigation with a built-in reverse parking camera, front and rear parking sensors, cruise control and dual-zone climate control. Top Premium SE models include a heated steering wheel, ventilated front seats, heated rear seats, xenon headlights with an adaptive front lighting system, a lane departure warning system and tyre pressure monitoring. As well as all of this, there are a range of clever but mainly optional features you wouldn't expect to find at this price point. Like a clever anti-fogging function built into the ventilation system that senses when the windscreen is becoming misted up and automatically deals with it. You can also specify a premium Infinity stereo and a self-parking system. More conventional standard safety kit includes the usual electronic intervention for braking, traction and stability control, plus seven airbags, including a driver's knee airbag. Hence the Euro NCAP 5 star safety rating.

Cost of Ownership

Whereas Ford and Vauxhall make a song and dance about eco-technology with special ECOnetic and ECOflex derivatives, Hyundai just gets on and includes what they call 'Blue Drive' in its most affordable i40 derivatives. Essentially, that means you get a Stop/Start system to cut the engine when you don't need it in traffic queues or at the lights, low rolling resistance tyres, an automatically actuated radiator blank that makes for faster engine warm-up and an Eco indicator to let you know how you're performing. It's all enough to keep both on the 1.7-litre CRDi diesel derivatives under the 120g/km of CO2 barrier, enough to earn a lowly 13% company car tax rating. The 115PS version records a particularly creditable 113g/km of CO2 with 65.7mpg on the combined cycle, figures a little supermini would have struggled to match until a few years ago. The 136PS variant isn't far behind with 119g/km and 62.8mpg. Bear in mind though, that the plushest models rather curiously lose the Blue Drive tweaks and as a consequence, jump about 35g/km of CO2. As a result, from a tax point of view, even if you can afford a really swish version, it might be better to buy a lower-level i40 and spec it up. Those customers opting for a 1.6-litre GDi petrol i40 also get Blue Drive, this a derivative which betters its 2.0-litre petrol stablemate on CO2 by nearly 30g/km, recording a 140g/km showing with 47.1mpg on the combined cycle. That's not a bad showing for a petrol model, but given that the 1.7-litre CRDi i40 is only £1,000 more, you'd recoup the premium between the two cars at the pumps within 23,000 miles, notwithstanding any taxation and residual value benefits the diesel model chalks up. As with all Hyundai models, peace of mind comes as part of the deal thanks to arguably the best customer assurance plan in the industry. The Five Year Triple Care plan includes five years of mechanical warranty, annual vehicle health checks and roadside assistance. Insurance groupings range between 12 to 18 on the 1-50 groupings scale.

Car Finance

Cash Price

The Cash Price is the ‘On the road price’ that the Dealership offers the vehicle at the point of sale. This is derived from any Manufacturer or Dealer savings from the Recommended Retail Price listed by the Manufacturer.

With thousands of models available we can offer you a competitive cash price quotation against any of our vehicles.

Our deals and offers change on a daily basis so please contact us for most up to date cash price.

PCP

PCP (Personal Contract Purchase) a simple cost effective way to buy your new or nearly new car.
You choose the car, the deposit, how long you want the contract to run for and the mileage you intend to do. You will then receive a quote for fixed cost motoring for the length of the contract. At the end of the contract you have a choice to either buy the car outright for an agreed lump sum (the GFV or final balloon payment), or hand the vehicle back to the lender.

HP

Hire Purchase allows you to take ownership of a car once all payments are made.

This is one of the most popular methods to buy a new vehicle. You pay an initial deposit, then pay off the balance in monthly payments over an agreed period of time, when the payments are complete the car is yours.

One of the main benefits with Hire Purchase is the ability to buy a high value vehicle on monthly payments.
Hire Purchase allows you to tailor your finance package as deposit, length of time and monthly payments are all flexible.

Lease

Personal contract hire is very similar to normal contract hire, but is exclusively for private individuals. This is one of the most common form of leasing.
With a personal contract hire agreement you take control of a car for a contractual period – usually referred to as the ‘lease period’. You will make fixed monthly payments for the duration of the contract – when the contract expires you will simply return the car and take out a new personal contract hire lease. PCH means you never have to worry about resale values of your car.
