Hyundai's Personal Contract Purchase Plan is a flexible way to source a fantastic new vehicle. The principle is simple. The motorist selects their favourite model such as the i40 Tourer Active 1.7 115PS Blue Drive. He/she then makes a deposit which is followed by fixed monthly instalments over a specified time. At the end of the contract the driver can choose to make the optional final payment to own the vehicle outright. Alternatively, it can be returned to its manufacturer with nothing further to pay (subject to mileage and condition) The third option is to part exchange via a new Personal Contract Purchase Plan. It the vehicle is worth more than the optional final payment – perhaps because it has low mileage and/or exceptionally little wear and tear - the difference contributes toward the replacement's deposit. Let us consider an example. Terms for the Hyundai i40 Tourer Active 1.7 115PS Blue Drive include the £3,653 deposit. This is followed by thirty-six monthly instalments of £349 and the optional final payment is £5,843.75. The total is therefore £20,060.75 which includes £2,295.75 interest (6.9% representative APR). The mileage allowance is 10,000 per-annum and excesses cost 14.9 pence per-mile.
Hyundai i40 Tourer Active 1.7 Blue Drive Review
The Hyundai i40 Tourer Active 1.7 115PS Blue Drive is a fantastic workhorse. But why? For starters, its cargo capacity is 553-litres rising to 1,719-litres once the rear seats are folded flat. These figures eclipse most rivals and there is a luggage cover to conceal valuables. Furthermore, this load-lugger has a pleasing equipment specification considering it is the entry-level trim. Highlights include the electric parking brake that prevents it rolling backward on hill-starts. This complements the: Bluetooth with voice recognition system, the air-conditioning, automatic headlights and the electronic stability program that contributed to its maximum five-star Euro NCAP safety rating. The i40 Tourer is also nice to drive. It therefore – despite being a large family class vehicle – is fairly entertaining thanks to its sure-footed handling. Power comes from a 115PS diesel engine that propels it to 62mph in 12.9 seconds. Not fast, but it compensates by averaging 65.7mpg which is impressive. This frugality is achieved via a series of “Blue Drive” innovations such as the start/stop system and eco-drive indicator. The latter advises the motorist when to change gear for the optimal fuel efficiency - the former automatically switches-off the engine while the vehicle is stationary. Simply press the clutch to restart. The Hyundai's sharp lines and five-year warranty complete the package.
