Hyundai is bringing more equipment to its high-value i40 range with the introduction of the Premium SE model, available in both Saloon and Sport Tourer guise.
Sitting above the Premium model, previously the range-topping trim level, the Premium SE adds the features currently contained on the existing Comfort, Vision and Assist packs as standard. All three packs will no longer be available to order as optional extras.
Standard equipment on Premium SE models now include heated steering wheel, ventilated front seats, heated rear seats (outer only), xenon headlights with adaptive front lighting system, lane departure warning system and tyre pressure monitoring. Hyundai’s Smart Park Assist is no longer available to order on the range, however, the i40 Tourer now gains an electric power tailgate.
Prices for i40 Tourer Premium SE start at £27,465 for the manual Blue Drive and standard models with the automatic version costing £28,670. For the Saloon, manual Blue Drive and standard models start at £26,065 rising to £27,270 for the automatic.
The Premium SE i40 will be available with the 1.7-litre CRDi 136PS engine (including the Blue Drive variant) along with a choice of either a manual or automatic gearbox.
Other changes to the i40 range include the addition of driver’s electric lumbar support on all Active models and improved high-beam headlights on both standard and Xenon version, while the 1.6-litre GDI petrol version has been discontinued.
