Hyundai has revealed the first pictures and details of the new i40, ahead of its world premiere at the Geneva Motor Show next month.
The i40 is developed specifically for the European market, and will be shown in Geneva in estate form, with a saloon to follow later this year. The i40 will be launched with a range of petrol and diesel engines, including a new 1.7-litre diesel engine, codenamed ‘UII’, that emits just 113 g/km of CO2.
Allan Rushforth, Senior Vice President and COO of Hyundai Motor Europe, commented, “Offering more for less has always been a fundamental principle at Hyundai, and now we are advancing this with our new brand direction under the ‘New Thinking. New Possibilities.’ slogan. The i40 is a perfect example of how we are offering the best and making it accessible to everyone. From stunning design and specification, to industry-leading technology and aftersales care – the i40 sets itself apart from its competitors.”
More details about the i40 will be announced during a press event at the Geneva Motor Show on Tuesday 1st March 2011.
