“Ai-fortieth” are released the seventh year, having experienced for all time only one modernization. Sales in Europe fell to a minimum: in 2017, 15,251 cars were sold, although in 2016 20,203 dispatched. As if the model did not reach the end of the life cycle.
Deep restyling before the change of generations does not make sense, so the update of the Hyundai i40 family can be considered a facelift. In the radiator grill is now a large-mesh net, almost like a Genesis G70 sedan. From the rear bumper of the station wagon there were massive exhaust pipes. Extended range of security systems. The salon has improved media center and decoration materials. By and large, that’s all.
The changes are so small that we have to focus on new 18-inch wheels. Multimedia system began to support the Apple interface CarPlay, which the owners have so far established in an artisanal way.
At home Hyundai i40 is equipped with a non-alternative power unit: atmospheric “four” 2.0 (166 hp) and a six-speed “automatic”. With them, everything is still. The sedan in Korea costs from 25,490,000 won (1.5 million rubles), the station wagon – 28,580,000 (1.7 million). Perhaps the European variant evolves differently (for example, a hybrid appears), but the Russian simply will not, because the model left us for the Sonata.
