A new Hyundai i30 hot hatch is not the only model that is under consideration by the Asian auto maker. It is now being reported that they are also have a hot i40 in the works as well.

The news stems from Allan Rushforth, Hyundai Europe's COO who confirmed the news on the launch of the regular i30. "A Hyundai GTI? That's not just a C-segment question [i30], but a D-segment [i40] one as well," Rushforth said. "We have talked about such cars and are considering versions not only with more performance, but dynamic improvements to ride and handling, too."

The performance variants of their models are considered essential to the brand's expansion. The turbo version of the Veloster was launched at the Detroit Auto Show last month and rumor state the turbo line-up will expand in 2013.
