The refreshed design of New i40 builds on the car’s characteristic levels of interior comfort, cabin versatility, practicality and cargo capacity.
Inside New i40 there are new high quality materials for the steering wheel, armrests and gear knob.  An additional Russet Brown leather interior further improves customer choice.

New i40 carries over key dimensions of the previous generation model, with a generous wheelbase (2770 mm) and overall width (1815 mm), which create a cabin with impressive roominess, including best-in-class space through its head (1025 mm), leg (1170 mm) and shoulder room (1455 mm) for front seat occupants.
Rear headroom (990 mm) in New i40 is class-leading, while the unique function of reclining rear seats allows i40 to continue to offer all occupants the most comfortable ride in the segment.

The cargo capacity in New i40 remains highly competitive 525 litres (sedan) and 553 litres (wagon) with the rear seats upright and up to 1719 litres (wagon) with the rear seats folded down and loaded to the roof. Loading and unloading the wagon is especially easy thanks to the lowest floor level in the D-segment – just 592 mm from the ground.
The Smart Power Tailgate, first introduced in the All-New Genesis, ensures easy access to the wagon’s cargo bay. It opens automatically when the driver approaches the rear of the car with the keys in his pocket. This makes the loading of the car much easier even with both hands full of shopping gear.
To further increase loading space and comfort the rear seats are split 60/40 and twin floor rails accommodate moveable luggage restraint barriers.

New i40’s is available with a heated steering wheel to enhance driver comfort in extremely cold conditions. Solar and privacy protects the interior from harmful UV rays and help reduce cabin temperatures as well as adding individual privacy in the back row.    

Audio and Navigation

New i40 is available with two new audio systems. The standard audio is an evolution of the system available in the outgoing model, with improvements to screen technology moving to a Monochrome TFT LCD screen. As an option, an advanced audio system boasts a 4.3-inch TFT screen, Digital radio to deliver broadcasts in the highest possible clarity, and a rear view camera.

New i40 features an upgraded navigation system with 7-inch TFT colour touch screen that benefits from the latest technology, improved touch screen functionality, new visualisation and a 3D display mode.  
Additionally a new high-resolution TFT LCD display informs the driver about on-board- and safety information.
