Korean automaker's i40 sedan variant follows the i40 wagon which was introduced at the Geneva show in March.

Hyundai has unveiled the i40 sedan at the Barcelona motor show today.

This i40 is the sedan variant of the i40 wagon which Hyundai chose to unveil first at the Geneva auto show in March.

The i40 sedan features a more pronounced take on Hyundai's "Fluidic Design" paradigm. It's very European in its looks, even if it seems to mimic the Ford Mondeo, which will be one of the model's main competitors.

Power plants expected are the 2.0 liter direct-injection Theta II unit, which is good for 177 PS (130 kW / 175 bhp) and 213 Nm of torque (157 lb-ft), and the 1.7 liter diesel engine in two configurations - 115 PS (84 kW /113 bhp) and 255 Nm (188 lb-ft) of torque and a more powerful 136 PS / 100 kW variant.

Tech features like Bluetooth phone connection, lane-departure warning, smart-parking assistance and a rear-view camera will also be made available in the i40 sedan as well as cabin comforts such as heated rear seats, heated steering wheel and air-ventilated front seats.
