The Five Year Triple Car package is standard on the i40 and means low maintenance costs. With so much standard kit available you won’t find yourself having to splash out optional extras. The 113bhp diesel engine with Blue Drive should be the cheapest model to run with an average claimed efficiency of 65.7mpg.

The cleanest model in the range is the 113bhp 1.7-litre diesel that, when fitted with the firm’s Blue Drive technology (including stop/start and low rolling resistance tyres), emits 113g/km of CO2. The higher-powered 134bhp diesel engine when paired with Blue Drive isn’t far behind and has CO2 emissions of 119g/km. This means both models fall in to road tax band C and also makes it the most affordable option for anyone looking for a company car.

Hyundai’s reputation for building solid and reliable cars has grown rapidly and with the i40 using parts already found on many other models in the range, this shouldn’t be any different. If there are any problems then the Five Year Triple Care package should cover any concerns. This package comes with five years’/unlimited mileage warranty, five years’ roadside assistance if you break down and five years’ of vehicle health check.
