Hyundai i40 Estate Revealed Ahead of Geneva Debut

Hyundai has released the first official pictures of the i40 - the car intended to rival the Ford Mondeo and Volkswagen Passat.

The new model is the manufacturer's first foray into the highly competitive European D segment market, and will be launched as an estate following its debut at Geneva.

The i40 was conceived at Hyundai's headquarters in Germany to guarantee a 'purely European identity'. The company will use the car to introduce a new 'modern premium' packaging concept that intends to offer a more upmarket feel for a mainstream price.

A range of powerplants are promised, but the headliner is the new 1.7-litre diesel engine which, according to Hyundai, will lead its class with CO2 emissions of just 113g/km and offer fuel economy of 65mpg.

The manufacturer is also promising a high level of standard kit, and will introduce tech not previously seen on its cars, including heated front and rear seats, a heated steering wheel and an automatic windscreen de-mist system.

The i40 saloon will follow the estate later this year. Expect the entry-level model to cost less than £20,000. Both versions will be backed by Hyundai's five-year unlimited mileage warranty.
