i40 Sedan Features
The Series II i40 Sedan exterior combines all the best elements of Hyundai design, creating a sophisticated vehicle that makes a lasting impression. Fluidic sculpture and distinctive, wrap-around front and rear lights with a hexagonal grille give the i40 Sedan a dynamic quality, while stylish alloys on all models show it means business.
Daytime Running Lights (DRLs)
Making the Series II i40 Sedan even more eye-catching are its LED daytime running lights. Standard on all models, these lights serve two functions: they make you stand out from the crowd when cruising, and make sure you’re seen more clearly at dawn and dusk.
Side Mirror Indicators
The Series II i40 Sedan combines stylish design with purpose - a perfect example being its side mirrors. Indicators are seamlessly integrated into the side mirror design, making it easy for other road users to see when you are indicating. Side mirrors are heated too, keeping them clear from condensation and frost. And at the touch of a button you can fold the outside mirrors completely inwards to help you squeeze into the tightest of spaces (Elite models only)
It’s the little design touches, like the Series II i40 Sedan’s sophisticated door handles, which contribute to its stunning overall appearance. Body coloured door handles become part of the flowing chassis line, while chrome door handles (Elite model only) add that extra dash of style.
i40 SEDAN EXTERIOR COLOURS
Sit down and notice how every comfort has been considered. The driver’s seat on Elite models is electrically adjustable in ten different directions – including lumbar support.
Your iPod, smart-phone or personal music player plug straight into the audio system so you can listen to your music when and where ever. Just as easy, (and with safety in mind), are the steering wheel mounted controls - which mean you can select a song, mute and change the volume – all without taking your hands off the wheel.
ONE TOUCH TURN INDICATORS
Here’s another nice touch. When you’re changing lanes, the i40 Series II points you in the right direction with one touch, turn indicators.
ELECTRIC PARK BRAKE
The new-style parking brake allows you to apply and release the brake with a convenient single touch. There’s also an auto hold button that when switched on automatically applies the brakes when you stop. Then when you turn off the ignition, auto hold automatically puts the handbrake on.
So good so far? Well, you could say we’re just warming up. i40 Elite models boast heated seats for both front and rear passengers, so you’re kept cosy inside, whatever the weather outside.
CRUISE CONTROL AND SPEED LIMITER
Cruise control means you can relax whilst maintaining a constant speed. The Series II i40 also has a speed limiter function, which allows you to set a speed limit that the vehicle will refuse to accelerate beyond. Both these features are controlled from your steering wheel.
With the Proximity key in your pocket, the Series II i40 recognises you, and with a touch of the door handle unlocks itself without you needing to press the key (Elite models only).
BLUETOOTH HANDSFREE PHONE SYSTEM
Enjoy your Bluetooth-enabled mobile phone and the i40’s multimedia sound system. You can also stream your music over the Bluetooth connection and it plays through the stereo system - clever.
Utilising Thin Film Transistor (TFT) technology, the stylish and elegant supervision cluster delivers brilliant colour as well as a wide range of useful information (Elite models only).
Pump up the volume with an amazing audio experience that includes a subwoofer and an external amplifier on Elite models. Sit back and enjoy a high quality surround sound audio experience whenever you’re on the road.
The i40’s multifunction steering wheel puts everything you need at your fingertips. Manage your music and answer and end Bluetooth phone calls. You can also control cruise control, the speed limiter and the trip computer. Useful stuff!
PUSH BUTTON START
The Series II i40 Elite model also features a push button start, so you can start the engine without turning the key in the usual manner.
ADVANCED CLIMATE CONTROL
Air-conditioning is standard across the Series II i40 range. What’s more, automatic dual zone climate control on Elite models means staying at the temperature you want is something you won’t even have to think about.
DRIVER INTEGRATED MEMORY SYSTEM
Save two different seating positions and switch between them with the touch of a button. The last-used position is also allocated to the key remote when you close the car, so the seat automatically returns to your position when you open it (Elite models only).
7-SPEED DUAL CLUTCH TRANSMISSION
The Series II i40 diesel engines are coupled with a 7-speed dual clutch transmission, delivering controlled power and outstanding driving performance.
Mounted directly on the steering wheel, twin paddles are there for true enthusiasts who like to enjoy sporty-style manual shifting.
1.7 LITRE UII DIESEL ENGINE
The new high powered 1.7 litre UII diesel engine delivers 104kW of power and a whopping 340Nm of torque.
2.0 NU GDI PETROL ENGINE
The 2.0 litre Nu GDi petrol engine achieves 121kW of power and 204Nm of torque.
With nine airbags, including driver and front passenger airbags, two side curtain airbags, four thorax airbags at all four outside seating positions, and a new airbag offering driver knee protection, the Series II i40 Sedan takes every possible precaution to reduce the risk of serious injury in the event of an accident.
ELECTRONIC STABILITY CONTROL (ESC)
A hugely reassuring feature. This innovative safety system - standard on all i40 Series II models - continuously monitors vehicle directional stability and tyre traction to help keep you in control of your vehicle. If the system senses the car is about to skid, ESC will kick in and apply the brakes over individual wheels and adapt engine power to prevent loss of control.
ADVANCED HIGH STRENGTH STEEL (AHSS)
Hyundai’s capability to make their own high strength steel alloy is an understated benefit, and one you won’t notice until you need it. Advanced high strength steel is applied to safety-critical areas of the body shell where additional strength reinforcement is required.
ISOFIX CHILD SEAT ANCHOR POINTS
The Series II i40 Sedan is designed to keep Kiwi families as safe as possible, with three tether child seat anchor points in the rear and ISOFIX child seat anchor points on rear outside seats.
FRONT AND REAR PARKING SENSORS AND REVERSING CAMER
Four ultrasonic sensors at the front and four at the rear are automatically activated on Elite models when you get close to things, giving an audible warning which increases in intensity the closer you get. On all models, a reversing camera seals the deal with a colour image on your screen when reverse is engaged.
