In this blog entry, I'm reviewing the Hyundai i40 Tourer VF Nu 2.0 GDI CVVT. The i40's powered by Nu 2.0GDI (- gasoline direct injection) D-CVVT Generating 177ps and 213Nm of torque! I actually did a VIDEO Review on this car back in October 2012 (18 months ago), here's the link:http://otoreview.blogspot.com/2012/10/video-review-hyundai-elantra-i40.html
This car's engineered and designed in Russelsheim, Germany to cater for European taste. This is European Sonata, designed to Compete with Toyota Avensis (European Camry), VW Passat and European Accord. It's the only D-segment below RM200k with 9 airbags and power boot.
It's Priced to sell at RM174,098 OTR Without insurance. Current PROMOTION: 1.18% to 1.88% Interest subsidy by Hong Leong. AND CASH REBATES! Call me 012-6852-718 for latest offers...
Man, this is a DRIVER's CAR. It has Excellent NVH (Noise Vibration and Harshness). It also comes standard with AUDI A4 like Ride and handling. There were 5 of us on board, whack a Hairpin at 90km/h with little Body-roll and still comfortable. Thanks to the Front McPherson and rear Multi-link suspension setup. Suspension is slightly stiffer than Sonata yet still strike a balance of JUST Right Comfort.
Power delivery is smooth and linear, DEFINITELY NOT Underpowered. Being a GDI with DUAL CVVT, the car's Quite powerful, 0-100km/h in 9.7 seconds only. It managed a respectable 7.5l/100km fuel consumption. This means 70litres tank's good for 700km city and 900km highway.
