The all-new Hyundai i40
saloon offers up to 65.7 mpg

, as well as the lowest company car tax in its class.
On sale from 5 January 2012, prices will start from £17,395 with insurance from Group 12E, and the i40 will have the lowest Benefit in Kind cost in class for key diesel derivatives.
The Hyundai i40 Saloon will be available in the same three main trim levels as the i40 Tourer (Active, Style and Premium) with the choice of two engines, three power outputs and manual or automatic transmission.
Hyundai’s Blue Drive technologies – incorporating Intelligent Stop & Go technology – are fitted as standard on all Active derivatives, and on the Style 1.7 CRDi 136PS Blue Drive and the Premium 1.7 CRDi 136PS Blue Drive model resulting in CO 2
