Hyundai i40 Tourer 1.7 CRDi 115 B'Drive Active 5dr Review

For This i40 is cheaper to buy than mainstream rivals and is well equipped, too. The diesel engine is smooth and refined and emits super-low levels of CO2.

Against Rivals, such as the Ford Mondeo Estate 1.6 TDCi, are sharper to drive and the i40 isn’t the most practical estate car, either.

Buyer's notes

Target Price team says:

There are three trims with the Hyundai i40 Tourer, and we reckon you needn’t look past the entry-level Active: this comes with a long list of standard kit, including alloy wheels, air-conditioning, Bluetooth connectivity, steering wheel-mounted stereo controls and automatic lights and wipers.

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.

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.
