Fastback joins Hyundai i30 line up

Car Manufacturer News
Hyundai i30 Fastback

Hyundai has announced the latest addition to its i30 line up. The five-door Fastback coupé follows the launch of the i30 range in March and the i30 Tourer earlier this month.

Customers can choose from a range of powertrains including 1.4-litre 140hp petrol, 1.0-litre 120hp petrol, 1.6-litre 110hp diesel and 1.6-litre 136hp engines. Depending on which is chosen, a six-speed manual or seven-speed dual clutch transmission can be specified.

To create the Fastback, Hyundai has played with the proportions of the original i30, lowering the roof line by 25mm and elongating the car by 115mm. A total of 12 paint finishes are available including three pearlescent, seven metallic and two solid.

Inside, an eight-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto is optional, while the navigation system comes with a free seven-year subscription to LIVE services offering up-to-date information. A wireless charging system is also available.

Standard safety features include autonomous emergency braking, driver attention alert, lane keeping assist and high beam assist, which dims main beam headlights to avoid blinding oncoming drivers. Speed Limit Information Function recognises road speed signs and displays the speed limit for the driver. The i30 received a five-star Euro NCAP rating when tested earlier this year.

The i30 Fastback will be available early next year.
