Hyundai Motor Company recently announced it plans to unveil its latest i40 model at the up-coming Geneva Auto Show, which kicks off in March next year.

The all-new i40 was designed and developed at Hyundai’s European R&D headquarters in Germany. It will compete against such vehicles as the Opel Insignia Sports, the Ford Mondeo and the VW Passat, which currently dominate the European D-segment vehicle sector.
According to the automaker, the all-new 2011 i40 will become Hyundai’s most innovative vehicle sold in Europe as it will feature the up-to-date powertrain technology.
As its U.S. market sibling, the all-new Sonata sedan, the i40 is also expected to boast best-in-segment performance and fuel economy. Fitted with ISG – Idle Stop and Go technology, average consumption of the 2011 i40 is listed at around 5L/100 kilometers.
The 2011 Hyundai i40 will incorporate Hyundai’s latest fluidic sculpture design language, featuring the automaker’s hexagonal signature grille in front and rakish lines which provide the vehicle with dynamic and sporty appearance. This is all what is known about the 2011 Hyundai i40 at this point. For more information, we will have to wait for the model’s official 2011 unveiling! Stay tuned.
