Press material

Since its launch in July 2011, the European-developed i40 has strengthened the brand’s image among customers in Europe.
It presented D-segment customers with outstanding exterior and interior design, numerous high-tech features and genuine high value and quality at an accessible price.
Now Hyundai is introducing the New i40 for 2015, the enhanced model with refreshed styling, upgraded engines, a new transmission, improved ride and handling, and a range of new safety and convenience features.
Like Hyundai’s ix35 compact C-segment SUV, i40 has played a positive role in the D-segment changing both private and fleet customers’ perceptions of the brand. i40 has achieved sales of almost 100.000 units since launch, capturing more than 5 per cent market share in the hard-fought D-segment.
