2012 Hyundai i40 Sedan


The almost entirely in Germany and especially in Europe designed specifically for car is a 'false' saloon. The flowing roofline and short decklid give you the impression that you are here for a five-state, but that's not the car. The description 'five-door coupe' is of course not far away.

Besides the design, actually very little. We drove the same route with successively the sedan and the wagon again, which is noticed that in the first of a better sound comfort enjoy. Logically, perhaps, a break acts always something more as a sound box. Continue pressing the right on which we will say that they are particularly positive. With four adults and their luggage on paper longs the very economical 1.7 liters diesel with 115 hp and 260 Nm on a slope already for some extra torque, but for regular (mountain) climbers, there is also a variant with 136 hp and 325 Nm. Using similar equipment which is indeed only 1,000 euros more expensive.

The first enjoys, thanks to CO2 emissions of 113 g / km (with 16-inch wheels and tires with low rolling resistance), already have a tax deduction of 80% as a company car. Hyundai expects therefore a breakthrough in the fleet market, as the Belgian importer provides the 1.7 CRDi already operating leases for 459 euros per month.

That the car driving dynamics are not quite the level of the best Europeans get, but strong scores on comfort. Thanks very handsome chairs, though. That he is remarkably large, rear. And also that the designers of the interior had the same inspiration as that of the body. In a segment which is usually not much risk-taking, the i40 stands out in a positive way. Who would have thought, here was the first ever Ponies and later even Lantra and Sonata of the boat were driven.
Hyundai did last year 750 wagons to sell in Belgium, a figure that at least this year hopes to double. For the sedan is aiming it at about 650 customers. Much less so, simply because more people the extra functionality of a break, the extra investment is worth finding. For clarity, the sedan is still 1,000 euros cheaper than the Wagon.
