What used Hyundai i40 saloon will I get for my budget?

An early i40 from 2012 with a high mileage will set you back £5000, but if you up the budget to £7500 you can find plenty of lower-mileage examples in mid-range Style spec.

You’ll need around £10,500 to get a facelifted i40 in SE Nav trim with average mileage. Prices for nearly new examples start at £17,000.

How much does it cost to run a Hyundai i40 saloon?

If you do find a petrol-powered i40, it’ll cost you a fair bit more to run than the diesel version. It has an official combined figure of 42.8mpg and road tax will set you back £190.

Of the diesel engines on offer, the 113bhp Blue Drive has the lowest running costs, with 67.3mpg and £20 road tax. The 134bhp version can be had both with or without fuel-saving technology. Without, the car has an average of 55.4mpg and £135 tax for the manual and 47.1mpg and £190 tax for the auto. With the fuel-saving tech on the manual version, the average goes up to 62.8mpg and road tax is brought down to £30.

As part of a 2015 facelift, that higher-powered 1.7 diesel was retuned to 139bhp and comes with fuel-saving tech as standard, so both fuel consumption and emissions were reduced. Manual cars have an average of 65.7mpg and £30 tax, autos are a little worse at 56.5mpg and £115 road tax.

All cars registered after April 2017 will be subject to the new flat rate of £140 per year for road tax.

Servicing costs for the i40 will be comparable to rivals'; however, early i40s can now take advantage of discounted servicing, since they are old enough to be out of the manufacturer’s warranty period. Included as part of the package is 12 months of AA roadside assistance coverage, which could be worth considering if you normally pay to take out your own breakdown cover.
