Building on the success of the Hyundai i30 N hatchback, the all-new Hyundai i30 Fastback N is a true performer, delivering an even sleeker and sportier drive that’s sure to get your pulse racing from the moment you take the wheel.
Already a popular model, the i30 Fastback has been upgraded in the N edition, with distinctive design cues setting it apart from the original. Dual tailpipes and an exclusive grille and sculpted bumper are a noteworthy addition to the exterior, as are the integrated boot spoiler for improved aerodynamics and the N-exclusive alloy wheels.
The racing theme continues inside, with black upholstery and red accents providing a sporty yet elegant feel. The seats are designed for unrivalled comfort and feature electric lumbar support and extendable cushions for your complete relaxation.
From the five distinct drive modes, which can be set to match your mood, to the infotainment system with its eight-inch colour touchscreen display, the new i30 Fastback N has enough equipment to keep even the most avid tech enthusiast happy.
Apple CarPlay and Android Auto enable you to access compatible apps on your smartphone as you travel, and a wireless charging pad means you need never lose connection while you’re out and about. Meanwhile, dual-zone automatic air conditioning ensures you’re always at the perfect temperature, regardless of the conditions outside.
A 2.0-litre T-GDi turbocharged petrol engine sits at the heart of the Hyundai i30 Fastback N, delivering thrilling performance over every mile. With 275PS and 353Nm of torque at your disposal, you’ll accelerate effortlessly – and thanks to Launch Control, which gives you maximum traction and limits torque to the front wheels, you can hit 62mph from a standing start in only 6.1 seconds.
Front-wheel drive and six-speed manual transmission provide a controlled ride and seamless power delivery, while a fuel economy of 36.2mpg is impressive for a high-performance model.
Safety is always important, and in the i30 Fastback N, it comes in the form of Hyundai SmartSense, a collection of cutting-edge systems that make your drive secure and protected. Included in the programme are Autonomous Emergency Braking, which works in three stages to help avoid a collision or minimise damage if an accident is unavoidable; Lane Keep Assist, which works at speeds of over 37mph to help prevent unintended lane departures; and Forward Collision Warning for low-speed situations in which a potential collision is detected.
At night, Smart High Beam detects oncoming vehicles and dips your headlight beam automatically to avoid dazzling other drivers, switching back to full beam once the coast is clear.
