Hyundai i40 Saloon To Debut In Barcelona

Hyundai has released the first image of its new i40 saloon, that will make its world world premiere at the 2011 Barcelona Motor Show on May 12th.

The debut of the i40 saloon follows the global reveal of the i40 estate at the Geneva Motor Show in March this year.

The i40 has been designed and engineered at the European R&D headquarters of Hyundai in Rüsselsheim, Germany, and represents the next evolution of the company’s unique form language, ‘fluidic sculpture’.

“We have used very strong, fluid lines from front to rear to give i40 a distinctive appearance,” commented Thomas Bürkle, Chief Designer at Hyundai Motor Europe Technical Centre. “We wanted to move away from the typical three-box saloon and create a car that was in keeping with the sporty nature of the i40 estate. By sculpting a low, elongated roof line, we’ve given the i40 saloon a striking coupe-like silhouette,” he added.
