Hyundai has released the first rendering image of the all-new i40 sedan, ahead of the world premiere at the 2011 Barcelona Motor Show this week
The i40 sedan will be the latest model to be unveiled under Hyundai’s new brand slogan – ‘New Thinking. New Possibilities.’
Hyundai says the i40 sedan "boasts a purely European identity", designed at its headquarters in Germany, and featuring flowing lines with a modern touch and sophisticated wing-like detail.
Just like the wagon version, a 1.7-litre turbodiesel with 113hp or 134hp is expected to be offered at launch, alongside a 1.6-litre petrol unit with 138hp. Shortly after launch, 2.0-litre petrol and diesel units will be offered.
An ultra-efficient version of the 113hp diesel with 65.7mpg and 113g/km will be offered soon after launch, badged Blue Drive.
