Hyundai i40 running costs should be cheap thanks to the standard Five Year Triple Car package. The package includes a five-year warranty, five years of roadside assistance and five years of vehicle health checks. The 113bhp 1.7-litre diesel engine with Blue Drive should be the cheapest model to run with an average claimed efficiency of 65.7mpg. Insurance costs shouldn’t be too onerous either.

The greenest model on the Hyundai i40 range is the 113bhp 1.7-litre diesel engine fitted with Blue Drive technology (including stop/start and low rolling resistance tyres), but if your lifestyle needs more power and you still want to drive a ‘green’ car then you’ll be pleased to know that your Hyundai i40 emissions will be kept in check with the higher-powered 134bhp diesel engine with Blue Drive that emits CO2 at a rate of 119g/km.

Building strong and reliable cars is starting to become one of Hyundai’s core strengths. The build quality and the fittings look and feel solid. If problems arise then the Five Year Triple Care package should cover any concerns, which means concerns about Hyundai i40 reliability should be addressed. This package comes with five years/unlimited mileage warranty, five years’ roadside assistance and five years of vehicle health checks.
