Hyundai I40 1.6 CRDi  SE Nav 4dr
Although it has been developed in Germany, this is not a sporting saloon with the pent-up sportiness of, say, a BMW 3-Series. Hyundai has instead sensibly prioritised everyday comfort and riding refinement instead, meaning that it delivers a very impressive ride and stability across all surfaces. It’s genuinely one of the class greats on the motorway.
It’s no ball of fire in the guise that will sell best, the 1.7-litre CRDi. Even that’s inconsequential though, as the motor has a decent shove of torque and is smooth enough to fade into the background at speed. Sit back and enjoy the smoothness: that’s what the i40 does best.
