Hyundai i40 is a sedan with sharp and innovative outlook that favours to be a head turner. This vehicle already persists in the international market, but will take its own time to come to India. However, due to the announcement made by the company that it will continue to explore the market with new additions over next three years, many industry experts believe that launch of this sedan in the country can be expected lot sooner than anticipated.

Currently, no specification sheet for Hyundai i40 exists in the Indian automobile market. However, the vehicle is expected to drive its power from a 2.0-litre diesel mill mated with 5-speed manual transmission to transfer power to its wheels. Rumours are rife that company may also launch this car model with automatic gearbox. Presently, the European version of this car model is equipped with a 6-speed manual transmission and an optional automatic gearbox mode. Many experts feel that the auto major may also come up with a petrol version. Petrol variant is expected to come with either a 1.6-litre mill or 1.8-litre powertrain.

There is no information about the power output and torque generation capabilities of this new car model. But, nonetheless, this sedan is expected to have a high delivery on these two important parameters. This judgement that has been passed on by industry experts is backed by the fact that current engine options given in existing petrol and diesel versions are pretty acceptable. In line with power and torque, the mileage of this sedan is also not yet known. But, with highly efficient fuel supply system used in the engine, a good mileage can always be expected from this vehicle.

Considering the European model of Hyundai i40, it can be easily said that this sedan can be expected to come with highly flavoured exteriors. The front fascia is indeed distinct from other car models of the segment. Sloping bonnet and impressive front grille appear to be highly exquisite. Side profiles are neat and streamlined to further accentuate the appeal. Rear portion also feels quite refreshing. Use of a fluidic design goes on well for a refined and stylised exteriors. Interiors too are expected to be highly cosy and stylish to make for an impressive entry.
