Classy trio finalised

THE three-pronged attack is complete.

Hyundai this week unveiled its all-new, German-built i40 sedan, which sits alongside the similar-looking i45 sedan and the i40 wagon.

Together, the trio wearing the flying H badge are aimed at the likes of the Mazda6, Ford Mondeo, Honda Accord Euro and Toyota's locally built Camry.

The i40 sedan range starts from just under $30,000 and offers a choice of a 2.0-litre petrol and 1.7-litre turbo-diesel engines, with three trim levels - Active, Elite and Premium.

Active models have a choice of six-speed manual transmission, while the Elite and Premium models are armed with six-speed self shifters.

Hyundai is trumpeting some unique segment features, including claiming the best-in-class economy with the manual diesel achieving an average fuel economy of 4.7 litres for every 100km, along with heated and ventilated driver and passenger front seats as well as heated rear seats on Premium variants.

Among the standard features are five-star safety with nine airbags, stability control, traction control and anti-lock brakes, LED running lights, electric park brake, seven-inch touch screen with sat nav on Elite and Premium models, premium sound system, and a rear view camera.
