Hyundai has expanded its i40 model line-up following the addition of a new range-topping trim. Premium SE, which is now available on both i40 Tourer and Saloon, boasts an exceptional level of standard specification and also exceptional value for money too.
Sitting above the existing Premium trim, Premium SE models will feature the items currently contained on the existing Comfort, Vision and Assist packs as standard. All three packs will no longer be available to order as optional extras.
Standard equipment on Premium SE models now include heated steering wheel, ventilated front seats, heated rear seats (outer only), xenon headlights with adaptive front lighting system, lane departure warning system and tyre pressure monitoring. Hyundai’s Smart Park Assist is no longer available to order on the range, however, the i40 Tourer now gains an electric power tailgate.
Prices for i40 Tourer Premium SE start at £27,465 OTR for the manual Blue Drive and standard models with the automatic version costing £28,670. For the Saloon, manual Blue Drive and standard models start at £26,065 rising to £27,270 for the automatic.
Tony Whitehorn, Hyundai Motor UK President and CEO, said: “The i40 has, and continues to be, a tremendous product to have in our range and to date it has sold in excess of 7,000 units since launch. The addition of the Premium SE trim to the line-up means customers now get even more comfort, luxury, convenience and safety features as standard, most of which are on-cost options with other rival mainstream D-segment cars.”
The Premium SE i40 will be available with the 1.7-litre CRDi 136PS engine (including the Blue Drive variant) along with a choice of either a manual or automatic gearbox.
Further to the addition of Premium SE, changes to the i40 range include the addition of driver’s electric lumbar support on all Active models and improved high-beam strength of standard and xenon headlights on all models. Furthermore, Hyundai will no longer offer the 1.6-litre GDI petrol derivative.
Updated prices for the i40 Tourer and Saloon are as follows:
