|The Hyundai i45 is much more than just a new car. It's a new idea. State-of-the-art engineering maximises performance and fuel efficiency, and the spacious interior concealed within its sporty silhouette combines superior levels of safety with comfort and style.
Sophisticated styling and intuitive functionality unite to make the i45 as exciting to drive as it is to admire from afar. Its smoked chrome radiator grille, fluid character lines, and sleek, eagle eye-shaped headlights reveal its sporty side, while its aerodynamics deliver an incredibly low drag coefficient of just 0.28, enabling it to cheat the wind and hug the road with even greater fuel economy.
Behind the scenes, the i45 employs cutting-edge technologies for an exhilarating, yet safe driving experience. Steering-wheel mounted paddle shifters allow for greater control upshifting and downshifting, and the anti-lock braking system (ABS) with electronic brake-force distribution (EBD) prevent the brakes from locking and distributes braking force according to the vehicle's load.

Sporty styling matched by performance
Attention to detail is evident in the little extras: the driver's power seat with adjustable lumbar support; the integrated six-speaker audio system with iPod connectivity; proximity smart-key entry; and a fully automated air-conditioning system.
Performance with a conscience
Its sporty profile isn't all the i45 offers. Underneath the bonnet lies a technologically advanced, high-performance powertrain that produces lower CO2 emissions and provides greater fuel economy than many other similar-sized engines.
Thanks to the latest gasoline direct injection (GDI) technology, the 2.4-litre Theta-II engine runs cleanly and efficiently, producing up to 148kW of power and 250Nm of torque for effortless performance. Combined with a six-speed automatic transmission, it can deliver an impressive 7.9 litres per 100km.
Break with convention and step into the future — you'll enjoy the ride.
