Hyundai i30 N Fastback Confirmed For Paris Auto Show Debut

Sales of Hyundai’s N products “have already exceeded expectations”, according to the manufacturer, and will reach new heights with the launch of the i30 Fastback N.

The third product in the car firm’s N performance brand, after the i30 N and Veloster N, will be officially presented to the world at the 2018 Paris Auto Show, on October 2. Essentially a five-door coupe version of the compact hot hatch, the Hyundai i30 Fastback N recently took to the Nurburgring for an exciting run, alongside the i30 N, Veloster N and i30 N TCR racer.

The road-going N products “have the same performance gene and share a strong character”, as Thomas Schemera, Executive VP and head of High Performance Vehicle & Motorsport Division, said.

“They are equipped with sophisticated technology and design elements. At Hyundai, we always accept new challenges and try different things to deliver groundbreaking experiences for our customers. We aren’t here to simply build cars, we want to create emotions, feelings, and desire”, added the official.

For the moment, Hyundai remains tight-lipped when it comes to the performance specs of the i30 Fastback N. Yet, the car is expected to deploy the same turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine found in the hot hatch version.

That unit is offered with two outputs: 250PS (246hp / 184kW) and 275PS (271hp / 202kW), respectively. When powered by the latter mill, the i30 N needs 6.1sec to reach 100km/h (62mph), from a standstill, whereas in the case of the former, 0.3sec are being added to the 0-100km/h (0-62mph) sprint time.

As demonstrated by the scooped prototypes, the Hyundai i30 Fastback N will adopt a more aggressively styled body kit. Changes will include reworked bumpers, new side skirts and a ducktail spoiler on the boot lid, to go with the larger wheels, dual exhaust pipes, tuned chassis and other mods.
