i40 customers have the choice of three trim levels – Active, Elite and Premium. As far as powertrains go, there are just two choices; a 2.0-litre GDI petrol or a 1.7-litre CRDi diesel engine mated to either a six-speed automatic or manual transmission, depending on what trim level you choose. Fuel economy is said to be outstanding across both engines with figures for the diesel as low as 4.7L/100km and CO2 emissions of just 124g/km. The level of standard safety kit on board is extensive and includes the likes of nine (yes that’s 9) airbags, LED Daytime Running Lights and a full suite of active safety systems including Emergency Stop Signal (ESS). Hyundai i40 Tourer pricing starts at $32,490 for the petrol Active manual and tops out at $44,990 for the automatic Premium. In the diesel variants, entry level is $34,490 for the Active manual and $46,490 for the Premium automatic.
