For The Hyundai i40 is good looking inside and out, offers good room for passengers and is packed full of kit. It also comes with some efficient diesel engines and is keenly priced.

Against The luggage space is large, but the gap between the boot and the cabin is strangely shaped and limits carrying ability. The driving experience is bettered by rivals as well.

A good-looking and well-specified family saloon with attractive pricing. The Hyundai i40 doesn’t quite do enough to beat the best in the class, but it is well worth a look.

Buyer's notes

Target Price team says:

Hyundai admits the estate will be more popular than the saloon version of the i40, but there’s still plenty going for the four-door.

The Active trim level comes with enough kit to make it an affordable option without being basic. It comes with alloy wheels, air-conditioning, Bluetooth connectivity, steering wheel-mounted stereo controls and automatic lights and wipers. The Style trim is not huge amounts more, though, and adds satellite navigation, a parking camera and sensors.

The 1.6-litre petrol model and the two diesels are all available in both standard and Blue Drive form – the latter incorporates engine stop-start technology, which helps cuts fuel consumption and CO2 emissions and only for a small amount more cash.

Like all Hyundais, the i40 comes with the company’s Five Year Triple Care package, which includes a five-year warranty, five years’ roadside assistance and five years of annual vehicle health checks.
