The i40’s heavily styled dashboard can look a little confusing at first glance, but most of the controls are clearly labelled and simple enough to use. If only the driving position was as hard to fault: you sit quite high up and the front head restraints jut a long way forward, leaving your neck at an awkward angle.
Hyundai i40 Tourer space & practicality
The i40’s boot has a 553-litre capacity, making it one of the biggest in the family estate class. However, it’s quite narrow between the wheelarches and the rear seats don’t fold completely flat. Put the seats back up and there’s room for four adults in the cabin (or five at a push).
