Overall verdict

"The Hyundai i40 Tourer is Hyundai doing what it does best. A good quality, good value car that appeals to the left side of the brain rather than the right. "

Hyundai i40 Tourer front

In other words, if you made a big checklist of all the things that are good about the Hyundai i40 Tourer you’d come up with a desirable car, yet you’d never actually write 'desirable' as one of its traits.


Initially the i40 Tourer was only one engine, a 1.7-litre diesel in three versions - 115PS, 136PS and 141PS. This was replaced by a 1.6 CRDi diesel late in 2018, while a 1.6-litre GDi petrol was also introduced. One thing all these engines have in common is impressive fuel economy - with the latest diesels capable of a combined 54.3mpg under WLTP tests.


Cabin quality is excellent throughout, with good use of soft-touch plastics for the upper dash and door trim plus glossy black trim even for base models. Some of the dials and buttons are flimsy and the dashboard design occasionally falls into the 'trying too hard' category with its swoopy creases, but overall the i40 Tourer has a quality feel.


So, it’s well-equipped, spacious, high quality and the numbers stack up. But what the i40 Tourer lacks is any sense of fun. Granted, fun is rarely a priority for estate buyers if you believe the cliche, but everything about the i40 Tourer just does a decent job – no more, no less. 


Similar estates include the Toyota Avensis Tourer, the Ford Mondeo Estate and the Skoda Octavia Estate.

The Hyundai i40 is no longer in production. Although it is not possible to buy a Hyundai i40 new, there's still plenty of used options.
