Hyundai has finally taken the wraps off the production version of its Mondeo-rivalling i40 at the Geneva motor show.

The i40 has been revealed as an estate first, ahead of sales starting in the UK in June.

Hyundai originally released an official miage of its “high-quality” interior, which it claims featured “sculpted shapes and a thoughtful layout”, based around its fluidic sculpture design language.

The firm is also displaying its two Detroit motor show stars for the first time in Europe at Geneva.

The production-ready Veloster coupé has the unusual layout of a single door on the driver’s side and two conventional doors on the passenger side.

The Curb concept is designed to showcase the next-generation of Hyundai’s design language and act as a test-bed for its ‘Blue Link’ infotainment technologies.
