Hyundai i40 Sedan, First Sketch Revealed
The Korean automaker Hyundai has released the first sketch of its i40 sedan model, ahead of the car’s official debut at the Barcelona Motor Show next week. The 4-door sedan was developed and engineered at the company’s European research and development center in Russelsheim and will hit the UK dealerships at the beginning of next year. The car has borrowed some design cues from the sexy Volkswagen Passat CC, and from the looks of this sketch, it promises to be a real eye-grabber.
Upon launch, the sedan will get the 1.7-liter turbodiesel engine like its estate sibling, offered in two output variants: 113 hp and 134 hp. The only gasoline engine available at first will be a 1.6-liter that produces 138 hp. Later on, more powerful 2.0-liter gasoline and diesel engines will be offered. In addition, a “Blue Drive” version will also be available soon after launch, featuring a 113 hp diesel engine that will do 54.7 mpg (US) and 113 g/km CO2 emissions.
