Hyundai i40 History

The Hyundai i40 was released in 2011 for the 2012 model and is built primarily for the European market. It is designed at the Hyundai factory Russelheim, Germany but manufactured in South Korea. It shares its platform with the North American marketed Hyundai Sonata and due to this, it is not available in this market. It was originally available as an estate, with the saloon version released in 2012. This car has the Hyundai 'fluidic sculpture' design and received the full 5 stars in the Euro safety tests.
