2015 Hyundai i40 face-lift release date
Hyundai has restyled family i40 with a facelift. The sedan and wagon received a small style makeover of the Genesis sedan, which large grille with cross panels were borrowed. In addition, the model has reconfigured suspension and steering.
Release date: March 2015
Hyundai i40 was the first full-size sedan, which could be considered a real competitor to the segment leaders. The current reconstruction is an attempt to return it in a number of popular family cars such as the Ford Mondeo or VW Passat.
History of brands
In 2011, Hyundai has introduced two new Hyundai i40 models: Wagon at the Geneva motor show in March, and two months later, Hyundai i40 sedan in Barcelona, Spain. This model is destined to become the flagship of the company on the European market among class D vehicles.
This model has come to replace the outdated Hyundai Sonata and represents a new stage in the line of Hyundai cars designed specifically for Europe. It was developed by European Research Centre, located in Germany.
Article about the 2015 Hyundai i40 face-lift has been prepared on the basis of peer reviews and rumors from the Internet. The exact release date and the start of sales is unclear, but there is actual information.
New i40 model will be equipped with electronic auto-disabling differential on the front axis and wagon will get back electronically-controlled dampers. Their stiffness will vary depending on the selected driving mode. The driver will be able to change the settings of steering control and response to pressing the gas pedal.
In addition, an automatic opening trunk will be available, which initially was proposed for a larger class sedan Hyundai Genesis. In order to open the trunk the owner will need to stand with the key in your pocket just behind the car and wait three seconds. The system recognizes the key and opens the door.
Additional options will be automatic switching beam in the middle, recognition of traffic signs and intersections of the road lanes markings. There is also a new navigation system with seven-inch screen. The media complex has enhanced graphics and the response of the touch screen.

i40 so far is expected with only two engines units. First power is 115 horsepower (torque 280 Nm), the second – 141 horsepower (340 Nm). The top-end version comes with a new seven-speed automatic transmission with two clutches, developed by Hyundai.
Updated Hyundai i40 family will be available only on the European market. Sale will begin in early 2015.
Developed by the international team of stylists in the industrial design centre in Germany, refined and sophisticated, the i40 sedan is designed in the best traditions of European style.
