“The reveal of the sedan represents the next step of the i40’s introduction to the European market, following the very positive reception for the i40 wagon.
The Hyundai i40 sedan shares the same qualities found in the wagon, including outstanding levels of fuel-efficiency, comfort, and quality, and broadens the appeal of the i40 to buyers in the D-segment,” commented Allan Rushforth, Senior Vice President and COO of Hyundai Motor Europe.
