Hyundai buyers in the UK can now order the N Line version of the i30 Fastback, which comes with a starting price of £20,495 ($26,980).
The i30 Fastback N Line features exterior and interior design elements borrowed from the range-topping Fastback N and is available with either a 1.0-liter 120 PS T-GDi engine or a 1.4-liter 140 PS T-GDi. The latter is available with both a manual and a DCT gearbox.
Like the i30 Fastback N, the N Line features a silver character line for the front bumper, black bezel surrounds for the headlights, a red reflector line for the rear bumper, N signature triangular fog light and a sporty diffuser. There’s also N Line badging on the front wings, N-branded sports seats, a leather sports steering wheel and an N gear shift knob.
Features such as Lane Departure Warning, Lane Keep Assist, Autonomous Emergency Braking and Hill Start Assist Control are standard on all models, as is the 8-inch touchscreen display with Smart Device Integration and DAB that also supports Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity.
“The i30 N range has been extremely well received by customers so far, with N and N Line models quickly accounting for 50% of all i30 sales. The introduction of the i30 Fastback N Line and the new Tucson N Line will deliver more of the N magic across our range,” said Hyundai UK managing director, Ashley Andrew.
The £20,495 price tag refers to the 1.0 T-GDi 120 PS 6-speed manual version, which comes with cloth sports seats, air conditioning, automatic dimming rear view mirror and black headlining as standard. If you want something faster and more opulent, you can get the i30 Fastback N Line+ with the 140 PS 1.4 T-GDi unit, which features faux leather and suede sports seats, dual-zone climate control, heated steering wheel, LED headlights, automatic rain sensing wipers and an 8-inch touchscreen sat-nav.
Hyundai i30 Fastback N Line buyers can choose between a total of 10 exterior colors. The likes of Engine Red and Polar White are solid finishes and come at no extra cost, whereas Champion Blue, Stellar Blue, White Sand, Micron Grey, Olivine Grey, Fiery Red, Platinum Silver and Phantom Black are all metallic or pearl finishes and will cost you an extra £585 ($770).
