Don't buy the i40 Active, Buy the i40 Elite
Originally I was seeking value for money and looking at the i30, but its boot was too small for my golf clubs. I bought the i40 Active auto petrol sedan (with metallic paint, tining, mats, and it's huge boot) for $27,000 (including a Hyundai $1,000 rebate available to A-League, Carlton, Brisbane Lions, and Gold Coast Suns members; Google it).
In hindsight, I should have bought the i40 Elite which includes dual climate control, sat/nav, leather seats, push button proximity key, electric driver's seat, rear-view camera, better wheels, better brakes, better audio system, fog lights and rear privacy glass for an additional $5K (full retail, but realistically $4K). None of the Elite features was important to me, but in total they represent excellent value.
The Active is not a luxury car, but the Elite has many of the luxury options.

looks nice, kills petrol
It’s a looker, but in petrol form not a dynamo driver. If you want a mid-sized family wagon that isn’t styled for the bowling club, the fit-out and packaging make it worth a test drive. But if you want more dash for your cash, your time is better spent testing the diesel.
smooth sleek look
not very efficient
