Designed by an international team of stylists at the company's design center in Russelsheim, Germany the suave and sophisticated i40 Sedan has a pure European pedigree.
With up to nine airbags available, including each driver and passenger airbags, i40 Sedan takes every possible precaution to reduce the risk of serious injury.
The first thing you’ll notice about the i40 Sedan is its front
lighting group: eagle-eye headlamps and wing-shaped fog
lamps. A nature-inspired organic design combines a sporty
style and sleek profile for a charismatic effect.
The i40 comes fitted with High Intensity Discharge (Xenon) headlamps to ensure more safety and effectiveness than conventional headlamps. With a significantly brighter and longer light beam, these lamps bring out details that you might otherwise miss, without causing any glare that can annoy and distract drivers in oncoming cars.
Also, its colour temperature closely approximates that of daylight to ensure complete accuracy. Plus with auto light control, the headlights turn on automatically when it gets dark and off again when there's light.
By taking a little time for a closer look at i40's numerous features and understanding their benefits,
a general impression grows into a true appreciation of the car and a real passion for the Hyundai brand.
Panoramic sunroof that lets the sun in
The nice thing about the panaromic sunroof is how everything seems to take on a whole new look when you open it up. The roof also comes with a built-in retractable wind deflector. Only the front panel is moveable.
The i40 Sedan best angle? Every angle. After all, the front,
rear and side designs harmonize so well, they feel like
one. The look is graceful, the feel is modern.
Quick & bright LED-type rear combination lamps
Large, wraparound rear combination lamps are handsomely sculpted and use an LED array for maximum brightness and enhanced safety. By lighting up a split second faster than conventional lamps, they alert the following driver sooner.
Who comes first when it comes to the driver’s seat design? The driver, of course.
Everything about the cabin, from its roominess to flowing plane,
was made to provide you with the utmost comfort and convenience.
Interior space that exceeds
To ensure the i40 Sedan would meet the high expectations of European customers, the interior specifications called for the use of premium grade electrical components and superior quality trim parts.
Adjustable in ten different directions, the electrically-controlled driver seat includes a new power lumbar support to promote greater comfort, alertness and safety.
ESP continuously monitors vehicle directional stability and tyre traction. If the system senses the car is about to skid and risks spinning out of control, ESP automatically intervenes, applying the brakes over individual wheels to prevent loss of directional control.
With up to nine airbags available, including each driver and passenger airbags, two side curtain airbags and four thorax airbags at the outboard seating positions plus a new airbag offering driver knee protection, i40 Sedan takes every possible precaution to reduce the risk of serious injury.
Installed just below the steering column, this new airbag is designed to reduce the risk of serious injuries to the driver’s legs and knees in the event of a serious frontal collision.
Premium ultra-high tensile strength steel is used in key body areas to maximize strength. But the steel is so hard it must first be pre-heated to
900 ºC before stamping. This Hyundai innovation offers more protection to the driver and passengers in the event of a collision.
Applied to the bonnet, this novel structure is highly effective in absorbing impact forces and represents a major advance in reducing the risk of serious head injuries in car collisions.
No ordinary, run-of-the-mill steel, the ultra-high tensile strength steel is a high performance special steel alloy applied to safety-critical areas of the body shell where additional strength reinforcement is required. The benefit is superior crashworthiness.
Advanced electronics are capable of making near-instantaneous calculations about road conditions, vehicle weight distribution and the correct amount of braking force in order to bring the vehicle to a safe stop within the shortest distance possible.
This system helps you park safely.
Shift into reverse, and sensors in the front and rear bumpers will start to measure proximity when you're too close, you'll get an audible alert. A back warning camera is also available as part of an optional package.
PA710, the standard audio configuration includes six speakers, an AM/FM radio and CD player with MP3 playback capability. The PA760 upgrade brings a six CD changer and an external power amplifier with sub-woofer.
A small marvel of electronic engineering, the supervision gauge cluster brings unprecedented clarity and brilliance to information display, something it manages to do while actually relaxing the eyes and making everything easier to read. Hit the ‘start ignition’ button and, from a black screen, the system springs to life in a glorious spectrum of colors. Supplied as standard equipment along with a monochrome LCD.
Trip computer Nestled between the twin cylinders, the LCD displays a variety of useful information including driving distance, average fuel consumption, parking assist system, etc. A color TFT LCD is available as an option.
For more convenient and safer driving, the remote switches provide controls over the audio system thereby encouraging the driver to always keep both hands on the wheel.
Steering-wheel mounted remote switches promote safer driving by helping keep both hands on the wheel and eyes on the road.
i40 Sedan can be ordered with a Bluetooth option which comes with steering column mounted controls and a built-in microphone. Interfacing seamlessly with Bluetooth-enabled phones, this hands-free solution promotes safer driving.
Loved by long-distance drivers, the auto cruise controls are conveniently mounted on the steering wheel for quick engagement and disengagement. A gentle tap on the brake pedal will also turn off the system.
Monitors your driving: Red indicates wasting fuel, green if you’re maximizing fuel economy, New trip computer provides much more information that just a simple odometer.
Driver and front passenger have their own individual temperature controls. System is able to automatically maintain pre-set temperatures for the two zones.
