Hyundai has confirmed its facelifted i40 will be priced from £19,600 when it goes on sale later this year. The outgoing model was priced from £19,050.

It is powered by the firm’s 1.7-litre diesel with the choice of two power outputs – 115hp, 141hp and 141hp with an automatic transmission.

The facelifted i40 is available in four trim levels – S, SE Nav, SE Nav Business and Premium. Standard equipment on the entry-level S models includes Bluetooth connectivity, air conditioning, leather wrapped steering wheel, automatic headlights and steering wheel equipped telephone controls.

SE Nav models add the firm’s touchscreen satellite navigation unit with rear view parking camera, DAB radio, an auto dimming rear view mirror, climate control, LED front fog lights and a seven speaker sound system, while the SE Nav Business editions adds keyless entry and a driver’s seat memory function.

The range-topping Premium model features 18-inch alloy wheels, a panoramic sunroof, a luggage net and a lane departure warning system.

“The introduction of the i40 Tourer and saloon means that the Hyundai range now has a fresher and more dynamic look, with changes aimed to appeal particularly to the requirements of our fleet customers,” said Tony Whitehorn, CEO of Hyundai UK.

“The addition of the SE Nav as a new trim level provides a clear differentiator from the traditional SE models and identifies the standardisation of our highly capable navigation system,” said Whitehorn.
