Performance & drive

What it’s like to drive, and how quiet it is

Hyundai has no petrol options at all for the i40. Instead, you get two versions of the same 1.7-litre diesel unit, one with 113bhp and the other 139bhp.

The lower-powered version is cheaper to buy and has enough get-up-and-go around town and beyond for it to make sense for most people. It pulls pretty well from low revs and hauls the i40 up to motorway speeds without ever feeling out of its depth.
