Hyundai has expanded its i40 model line-up following the addition of a new range-topping Premium SE trim, which will sit above the existing Premium specification.
This promises to offer class-leading levels comfort, luxury and safety features as standard.
Equipment on Premium SE models includes 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 OTR 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 1.6-litre GDI petrol engine has been dropped from the range, with the same 1.7-litre CRDi 136PS motor still available (including the Blue Drive variant). Both manual and automatic transmissions are offered.
Further to the addition of Premium SE, changes to the i40 range include the addition of driver’s electric lumbar support on all Active models and improved high-beam strength of standard and xenon headlights on all models.
