2019 Hyundai i30 Fastback N Goes On Sale In The UK From £29,995

Hyundai UK has announced the range and pricing details of the new i30 Fastback N, which goes on sale in the country on January 21.

As the second model in the company’s European lineup to receive the full N treatment, the new i30 Fastback N combines the performance of a proper hot hatch with the practicality of a five-door coupe, making it a very distinctive offering in the market.

Unlike the i30N on which it is based, the new i30 Fastback N will be available only with the most powerful version of the turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder petrol engine, which puts out 271hp (275PS) and 260lb-ft (353Nm) of peak torque.

Paired to a six-speed manual transmission, the hottest i30 Fastback can deal with the 0-62mph (100km/h) sprint in 6.1 seconds, while top speed stands at 155mph (250km/h).

The chassis has been upgraded with features like an electronic limited slip differential, 345mm front brakes, adaptive suspension and a torque vectoring system. The active exhaust system that debuted in the regular i30N hatchback is also present, as is Launch Control, Rev-match function and a selection between different drive modes.

Standard equipment includes LED headlights, cruise control, keyless entry, eight-inch infotainment system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, 19-inch alloy wheels and more.

Customers of the new i30 Fastback N will get to choose between six exterior paint options, including the new Shadow Grey that is exclusive to the model. Other options include Performance Blue, Polar White, Micron Grey, Phantom Black and Engine Red.

Pricing for the new Hyundai i30 Fastback N starts from £29,995, which includes the company’s 5-year unlimited mileage warranty.

    It blows my mind why Hyundai doesn’t offer this car in the US. Crazy!

    Don’t know why but overall shape reminds me of Civic…

    Kinda cool, if a bit too egg shaped. Definitely appealing though, with the hatch practicality, handling, and powerful little motor.
