Like the smaller i30, you can choose from an i40 saloon or the Tourer estate, depending on your daily needs. They’re roomy and dependable and, generally speaking, most models have a good selection of equipment as standard. We’re a big fan of the company’s long warranty, which removes much of the uncertainty of ownership. But are they great cars? Over to Mark Walton, who ran CAR magazine’s long-term test car for a year. ‘All the i40 lacks is desirability - that magical quality that some products have and some don’t…. It’s a really good car, a genuine alternative to the more predictable Fords and Toyotas, one I’d recommend to anyone looking to buy a family estate. Still it’s not a great car.’
