The new Hyundai i40 has been spotted screening ahead of its release date next year. The new model is likely to be available with electrical power and get an interior that significantly improves on the current car’s in regards to quality and area.
2019 Hyundai i40 Price and Release Date
It’s too soon to say exactly when the new i40 will go on sale, however the middle of 2019 looks like a practical bet. Pricing for the existing Hyundai i40 starts at ₤ 20,140 ($ 26,300) for the base variation. You can anticipate costs to start at around ₤ 20,000 for a basic petrol model increasing to more like ₤ 30,000 for a petrol-electric hybrid.
2019 Hyundai i40 Styling
Regrettably, these spy images inform you incredibly little about the 2019 Hyundai i40– thanks to the car being hidden under plastic cladding and a full-body wrap. That stated, you can expect huge changes as Hyundai tries to provide its big household car the distinct appearance previewed by the Le Fil Rouge (loosely equated as ‘typical thread’) concept car, seen at the Geneva motor program previously in 2018.
The principle car included a big grille, a diving five-door coupe-like roofline and attractive rear lights. Although, the Le Fil Rouge’s razor-edged (expensive-to-manufacture) body creases and suicide rear doors that hinge from the back of the car, are not likely to make production.
2019 Hyundai i40 Interior
Taken with a generous pinch of salt, the Le Fil Rouge’s interior can likewise function as a guide to exactly what you can expect to find in the 2019 Hyundai i40’s interior. Simply puts, you can forget about the concept car’s substantial slabs of bare wood and brushed metal cabin trims, however its large haptic feedback touchscreen infotainment system sounds plausible. Pushing a button on a haptic touchscreen seems like you’re pushing a real button, making it simpler to run when you’re driving.
A big digital screen behind the steering wheel is something else the 2019 Hyundai i40 might pinch from the idea car. It would allow you to select from a range of display screens– including a large sat-nav map that would be extremely easy to follow.
Seating setup should stay the same, though I am not opposed to the i40 getting new seats. The old ones were a little too stiff and unpleasant. Softer and more ergonomic seats would go a long way in creating the type of premium cocoon that’s going to attract a lot of clients.
2019 Hyundai i40 Engines
The most intriguing tech will be discovered under the 2019 Hyundai i40’s bonnet, though, with the new model set to get a hybrid powertrain with a 2.0-litre petrol engine improved by an electrical motor to return fuel economy of more than 60mpg and low emissions that could make it exempt from paying London’s congestion charge.
In spite of increasing lethargy for diesel power, you are still most likely to be able to have the i40 with a diesel engine, which would offer exceptional long-range fuel economy. Nevertheless, anticipate the i40 to likewise be offered with a range of turbocharged petrol engines.
Two transmission choices are most likely to be included, specifically a six-speed handbook and a seven-speed twin-clutch automated transmission. An eight-speed automated has yet to be revealed on the i40, but the 2018 Sonata currently has it so there’s no reason it’s Euro equivalent should not get it, either.
