This is the latest image of the Hyundai i-flow, which will go on sale as the i40 in 2011.
The Hyundai i40 will initially only be available as an estate car until a four-door saloon.
Ken Lee, President of Hyundai Motor UK, said that “the D-Segment is an important one for us across the whole of Europe, and it is due to market demand in mainland Europe that Hyundai will make an estate and saloon version of the i40, and not a hatchback.”
The engine range will include 1.7, 2.0 and 2.2-litre diesel motors, plus a 1.6- and a 2.0-litre petrol.
The i-flow concept sketches preview many of the styling cues from the new ix35 SUV, which is the first model from the Korean maker to get the ‘fluidic design language’ that is to characterise modern Hyundais.
Expect prices to undercut the popular Mazda 6, which starts at £18,390 for the estate, and has been used as a benchmark in the development of the Hyundai i40.
