With the new body type reflecting Hyundai’s design language but with a distinct character set apart from the rest of the range, the i30 Fastback has a roofline that is lowered by 30 millimetres compared with the hatchback.
This enhances the car’s wide stance, improving aerodynamics and creating a distinctive silhouette which is complemented with two new alloy wheel designs. The roofline tapers towards the rear, where it meets with an integrated rear spoiler and continues to the rear lights.
At the front, the height of the i30 family’s signature cascading grille has been reduced for i30 Fastback to give a more clearly defined look and to emphasise the bonnet. A lower horizontal air intake below the grille and an angled lower front spoiler further emphasises the i30 Fastback’s distinctive front. Redesigned LED daytime running lights mounted in the new front bumper and headlamps with a dark surround further differentiate it from the hatchback and Tourer.
The i30 Fastback is available in three trim levels: SE Nav (£20,305 on the road), Premium (£22,105) and Premium SE (£23,405), with specifications mirroring other models in the range. The 1.0 T-GDi and 1.4 T-GDi petrol engines are also carried across from the hatchback and Tourer, with i30 Fastback also introducing the 1.0 T-GDi to the Premium and Premium SE trim levels for the first time.
Equipment is generous, with the base-spec SE Nav 1.0 T-GDi featuring an 8in touchscreen featuring Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. On top of that there’s wireless phone charging and a rear-view camera. Go up to Premium spec and you get the luxury of artificial leather seats and LED headlights while the top-of-the-line Premium SE get a panoramic sunroof on top of all that.
Safety equipment is equally generous, with lane departure warning, forward collision warning, lane-keep assist and autonomous emergency braking all standard across the range.
Tony Whitehorn, president and CEO of Hyundai Motor UK, said, “The i30 Fastback is the final model of the i30 family to be launched and with it comes a vehicle with its own distinct and unique style.”
