Hyundai is preparing a mid-cycle facelift for its Euro D-segment Hyundai i40, and we can see from this spyshot of the Tourer model that it will get a revised front bumper and grille.

The front bumper takes cues from the new Hyundai Sonata, having a more stately upright design, a change compared to the pre-facelift model’s more curvy snout.

The front end is the only part that is disguised for now, but we think there could be minor changes to the headlamp and taillamp graphics as well when the i40 facelift is eventually launched.

Both the ‘Euro market’ i40 Sedan and i40 Tourer are available with Malaysia alongside the ‘general market’ Sonata, powered by a unique 2.0 litre direct injection normally aspirated engine instead of the port injection 2.0 litre engine found in the Sonata.
