i40's NEW TUNE

HOT ON the heels of the Sonata mid-sizer, Hyundai has revised its i40 line-up, ditching the mid-level Elite in the process. The simplified range now consists of base Active and leather-lined Premium.

While the 121kW 2.0-litre direct-injection petrol continues in the wagon, it has been dropped from the sedan, leaving the petrol-fuelled four-door market to its larger showroom buddy, the Sonata.

New bumpers and lights, and a 4.3-inch touchscreen in i40 Active are among the minor aesthetic changes while prices have dropped between $1500 and $3600.
