- Performance comparable to my 2.0l TDCI Focus.
Handling for a larger saloon car.
Easy to drive.
Gearchange very crisp and positive.
Rear seat space.
Rear view camera for gauging distance only.
Detour option on sat nav.
Dual zone climate.
- Fuel economy after 7K miles not returning claimed MPG, my old focus was averaging 53 mpg I'm only getting 48 in the i40 and my driving style and routes have not changed.
No option to set auto hold handbrake to on by default.
Rear view camera as perspective very misleading and impossible to use as a reversing aid.
Odd shaped cutout panel behind behind rear seats makes for reduced storage and loading space with rear seats folded down.
Would like a wider range of colours.
