As you can remember, Hyundai is working in a facelift for the European i40 D-segment car (this car is available in South Korea under “Premium Younique Lifestyle” tag alongside the i30 and Veloster). With a front and rear end under cammo, the prototype allow us to see a completely new front grille and an updated headlights.

[ads id=”0″ style=”float:left;padding:9px;”]The first generation i40 was launched on May 2011, at the Barcelona Motor Show. The i40 was designed and engineered at the Hyundai Motor Europe Technical Centre in Rüsselsheim, Germany and was launched also in South Korea.

Depending on the market, the i40 is available with up to three petrol engines (1.6 GDi, 2.0 MPi and 2.0 GDi with 135, 166 and 178 hp) and two diesel CRDi engines (1.7 with 115 hp and 136 hp).

Hopefully during Hyundai’s Product Momentum show held tomorrow, we will got more information and a preview of this facelift.The refreshed i40 is expected to include new features like Blind Spot Detection, Smart Cruise Control and revised petrol GDi and diesel CRDi engines.

    Can’t understand why Huyndai Kia does not design AWD sedans/SportsWagon, like Audi, VW, Volvo does

      I think the i40 isn’t in that place on the market, like premium sedans from premium brands like you said. Hyundai only have available the Genesis with AWD (first all-wheel drive car from Hyundai, apart from the SUVs), maybe in the future they launch more models.
