Hyundai i40 Tourer Euro NCAP Rating

My friend should treat himself to a Hyundai i40 Tourer.

My friend should treat himself to a Hyundai i40 Tourer. Why? Because he has wrecked four vehicles in three years. He crashes more, in fact, than a busted laptop running Windows Vista. Now, as my friend insists on regularly ploughing through fences he needs a robust car. That brings us back to the i40, which excelled at safety tests performed by Euro NCAP – the independent vehicle assessors. In fact, this Ford Mondeo rival earned the maximum five-star overall rating. This breaks down to scores of 92% for adult occupant protection, 86% for child occupants, and 43% for pedestrians. This mile-muncher also earned 86% for the safety assist category, which includes wizardry such as the electronic stability programme. This system helps keep the i40 pointing away from ditches.

Despite only keeping vehicles long enough to crash into fields, my friend insists that his next car must be versatile. Here the Hyundai i40 Tourer excels too. It has a 553-litre boot, for starters, and cargo capacity can be increased to 1,719-litres by folding the rear seats flat. That is extremely spacious for the class. Furthermore, the handling is sharp, the ride comfortable, and it is backed-up by a five-year warranty. It even has plenty of toys. High- spec trims have: parking sensors, Bluetooth, cruise control, an electric sunroof, and MP3 connectivity. Leather seats are also available. This complements a range of fuel efficient and refined engines. Very nice, but I wonder how long before my mate wrecks this car too?
