  • New active safety and comfort features only seen in Genesis before
  • Improved lighting through New Bi-Xenon headlamps and Smart High Beam
  • Speed Limit Identification Function alerts driver when speeding

Press material

The already comprehensive list of available active and passive safety technologies is expanded for the enhanced New i40.
New Bi-Xenon headlamps, which have brighter illumination and deliver greater clarity for improved night time visibility, feature self-levelling as standard.
The forward-facing sensors for the existing Lane Keeping Assist System, now perform two additional functions. The new Smart High Beam (SHB) system monitors approaching traffic and automatically turns off the high beam to avoid dazzling other drivers. This system was first seen by the premium Genesis model.
The new Speed Limit Identification Function system checks roadside signs and displays a current speed limit alert to the driver via the new TFT display on the instrument panel. It is the first time Hyundai is bringing this technology to its line-up.
In terms of passive safety equipment, every New i40 is fitted with seven airbags – front, side, curtain and driver knee airbag as standard. On some models two rear side airbags are also available. The original i40 was awarded the maximum five-star safety rating in Euro NCAP’s impact assessment programme.

Five Year Unlimited Mileage Warranty

Like all new Hyundai models, the New i40 is backed up by Hyundai’s unique, Europe-only, Five Year Unlimited Mileage Warranty package. This care programme provides customers with a five-year warranty with no mileage limit, five years of roadside assistance and five years of vehicle health checks.
