Hyundai has announced pricing and specification details for the second model in its ‘N’ family of performance cars – the i30 Fastback N.

The new model shares the majority of its components with the regular i30 N, but hides them under a slinky, coupe-saloon style body with a lengthened rear aspect and sleeker profile.

The four-door Fastback features a large ducktail spoiler, but is only 1cm longer than its hatchback cousin. The roofline, meanwhile, is 3cm lower.

There’s only one grade of i30 Fastback N to choose, and it’s generously equipped for its £29,995 starting price. Standard kit includes 19-inch alloy wheels clad in N-specific Pirelli P-Zero tyres, plus an electronic limited-slip differential and adjustable suspension. Torque vectoring aids tidier cornering, and buyers can choose between driving modes via a switch on the steering wheel.

A manual handbrake and six-speed manual gearbox help to up the driver involvement, while clever tech such as launch control and rev-matching make for smoother progress.

   

The i30 Fastback N also features LED headlights and taillights, cruise control, keyless entry and an eight-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity.

There’s also N-specific sports seats, performance gauges and a selection of six colours including Shadow Grey, specific to the Fastback N.

Hyundai supplies the Fastback N with the same five-year, unlimited-mileage warranty as all of its cars – and impressively, continues to uphold it even if the car is used on track. Order books open for the i30 Fastback N on January 21.
