Hyundai i40 1.7 CRDI Sedan Review Interior Exterior 2018

Hyundai i40 1.7 CRDI Sedan Review Interior Exterior 2018.



Four engines are available: 133bhp 1.6- and 174bhp 2.0-litre petrols, and 114bhp and 134bhp 1.7-litre diesels. The lower-powered diesel is up to the job of hauling the car around, but feels decidedly flat if you let the revs drop below 1600rpm. The same is true of the more powerful unit, but it has more oomph when it’s on song. Every engine comes with a six-speed manual gearbox, while a six-speed automatic is an option on the 134bhp diesel.



The i40 is stable at motorway speeds, and it remains pretty composed in bends. However, the steering undermines the driver’s confidence because it feels artificially weighty in turns and vague around the straight-ahead position. The ride feels a bit too lively, too, and never seems to settle even on smooth roads.



While you’re never going to mistake it for a petrol engine, the diesel engines stay smooth and refined unless you rev them hard. The i40 Tourer also shuts out wind and road noise pretty well, too making it a capable cruiser. However, the standard six-speed manual gearbox is notchy, and the optional auto’ box could be smoother.



Interior quality has taken a big step forward from previous Hyundais: there are lots of appealing, soft-touch plastics and everything has a solid, built-to-last feel. The company also performed well in our last Reliability Survey and, like every Hyundai, the i40 comes with a five-year, unlimited-mileage warranty and five years’ roadside assistance.



Every i40 Tourer features a host of driver aids, including emergency brake assist and electronic stability control. There are also seven airbags: twin front, side and curtain ’bags and a driver’s knee ’bag. All this helped the car achieve a five-star crash rating from Euro NCAP. On the security front, deadlocks, locking wheelnuts and a Thatcham Category 1 alarm are all standard across the board.



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.



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).



Entry-level Active cars come with alloy wheels, air-conditioning, Bluetooth connectivity, steering wheel-mounted stereo controls and auto lights and wipers. Style spec adds satellite-navigation, a rear parking camera, cruise control and dual-zone climate control. The flagship Premium model also gets leather upholstery, electric front seat adjustment, a panoramic sunroof and keyless entry.
