These are the first pictures of Hyundai's new D-segment entrant, the i40.
The car will debut at the Geneva Motor Show next month.
Hyundai said the i40 is its first D-segment vehicle to be developed specifically for the European market, with a package of powertrains, equipment and technology tailored for European tastes.
It will be shown in Geneva in estate form, and this will be the first i40 bodystyle to be introduced to Europe, with a saloon to follow later this year.
Designed and engineered at Hyundai’s R&D headquarters in Rüsselsheim, Germany, the i40 is the latest Hyundai model to have a purely European identity.
In line with Hyundai’s commitment to make premium products and features available to everyone, the i40 has a extensive level of standard equipment.
Among the specification are new technologies for Hyundai, including: heated and reclining front and rear seats; a heated steering wheel; and an active de-mist system that automatically detects and clears mist on the windscreen.
The i40’s 1.7-litre diesel engine, codenamed ‘UII’, will emit from just 113 g/km of CO2 emissions.
Hyundai’s customer care package, Five Year Triple Care, will come as standard on i40.
