What alternatives should I consider to a used Hyundai i40 saloon?
The Ford Mondeo has been a staple for years because it has plenty of space inside for up to five people and their luggage, has some strong engines and handles well.
If you like plenty of gadgets for your money, then the Kia Optima is worth looking at. It shares engines and transmissions with the i40, but there is a hybrid option if you do most of your journeys in town.
The Vauxhall Insignia has a classy and well-built interior and punchy 2.0-litre diesel engines. It also has a hatchback boot opening that is a lot bigger than the opening on the i40 and means you can get taller items in the back more easily.
