Features Of 2012 Hyundai i40 Tourer
The design concept of Hyundai i40 Tourer is an evolved version of ‘fluidic sculpture’ that accounts for sleek body and flowing lines. This design was debuted by ix-ionic concept and has inspired the Veloster, ix20 and 35 by Hyundai.

While the cloth upholstery in the Active model looks hard wearing, the same in the Premium model features well trimmed leather seats augmented by high-end equipments. The Premium model of i40 Tourer offers ventilated and heated front seats. Hyundai i40 Tourer is the first-ever car in this segment to sport heated rear seats. However, tall passengers are likely to complain about the not-so-enough headroom in the Premium model.
The headroom is eaten up by panoramic sunroof. Rear passengers get the advantage of air outlets. Hyundai i40 Tourer sports luggage rail system in both the Elite and Premium models. As it offers 553 liters boot space (1719 liters with rear seats folded), the Hyundai i40 Tourer is definitely the new-age family Tourer.
Some of the high-end equipments packed in Hyundai i40 Tourer are Bluetooth, fog lights, driver’s knee airbag, Hill Assist Control (HAC), Smart Parking Assist, Xenon headlamps, Lane Departure Warning system, etc.

The Hyundai i40 Tourer Active model is powered by 1.7L diesel engine while the Premium model is powered by 2L GDI petrol engine. This direct-injected engine renders 130kW power output and 213Nm of torque but strains out while pulling the Premium model weighing 1600kg. Also, peak torque is released at 4700rpm.
So, if you are driving up hills, getting the adequate speed would take longer. Six-speed automatic transmission adds to the woes of the driver. On the other hand, the diesel engine renders 100kW power output and 320Nm torque. Peak torque is reached at just 2000rpm and hence accounts for relaxed driving. The diesel engine is quieter than most diesel engines.
Hyundai i40 Tourer features damper settings, electric-power steering, swaybar stiffness, etc. to meet the needs of individual driver and roads. Also, the car is smooth over bumps – thanks to the large 18-inch alloy wheels.

On the other hand, Hyundai i40 Tourer diesel manual consumes 4.7 liter fuel per 100km against 5.6 liter that of diesel automatic.
