The new Hyundai i40 saloon will cost from £17,395 when it hits UK showrooms at the beginning of January 2012.

Following the recent release of the estate version, the new saloon “shares the same qualities found in the i40 Tourer - offering outstanding levels of fuel-efficiency, comfort, quality, and a high level of standard equipment all at an accessible price,” according to Hyundai’s UK MD Tony Whitehorn.
