Hyundai i40 facelift to be introduced in Geneva image

The updated version of the Hyundai i40 will be officially unveiled next year, during the 2014 Geneva Motor Show, in a premiere.

The South Korean based automaker Hyundai is currently working on a facelifted version of the i40. Just like any updated vehicle out there, the model in question will receive a new front fascia, with a new grille, a new front bumper and probably some redesigned headlights. The rear end of the car will most likely be slightly updated too, in order to help it differentiate from the current version of the popular model.

The 2016 Hyundai i40 will be inspired by the Genesis sedan and it should be getting a multi-bar front grille and sculpted air intakes, on either side. As far as the engine lineup goes, this will be carried over from the current version and this means that we will see the 1.7 liter CRDi, with 113 HP and 134 HP. In the higher form, the i40 will be able to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 10.3 seconds and to reach a top speed of 200 km/h (125 mph). The model will be officially presented to the public during the 2014 Geneva Motor Show, in March.
