Hyundai Motor has unveiled the new i30 Fastback – the latest addition to the i30 range. The new i30 Fastback will be available by the beginning of 2018.
Visually, the i30 Fastback features sloping roofline, a long bonnet and a muscular body. The Cascading Grille’s height at the front has been reduced while a lower horizontal air intake below the grille gives the i30 Fastback a charismatic front. An angled lower front spoiler is designed to create a muscular appearance. At the front, full LED Daytime Running Lights and headlamps with a premium dark bezel round off the i30 Fastback’s visual impact.
The roof has been lowered by 25 millimetres compared with the i30 five-door. The emphasis on the rear is aimed to make the i30 Fastback look capable and assertive. The arched rear spoiler is integrated into the tailgate and continues to the rear lights. There are in total twelve exterior colours available for the i30 Fastback:
Three pearl choices
- Stargazing Blue
- Micron Grey
- Phantom Black
Seven metallic choices
- Clean Slate blue
- Intense Copper
- Moon Rock
- Fiery Red
- Platinum Silver
- Ara Blue
- White Sand
Two solid choices
- Engine Red
- Polar White
For the interior, customers can choose from three colour options:
- Oceanids black
- Slate Grey
- New and unique Merlot Red interior
The driving dynamics of the Hyundai i30 line-up are tested and refined by engineers at Hyundai Motor’s European Testing Centre at the famous Nürburgring “Nordschleife” circuit. By comparison to the i30 five-door version, the chassis of the i30 Fastback has been lowered by 5mm and the stiffness of the suspension has been increased by 15%. Thanks to the lowered roof and chassis leading to an overall height of 1,425 mm, the i30 Fastback is 30 mm lower than the five-door body type. The car has an overall length of 4,455 mm – 115 mm longer than the five-door.
Safety net on the Hyundai i30 Fastback includes:
- Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB) with optional pedestrian recognition
- Driver Attention Alert (DAA)
- Advanced Smart Cruise Control (ASCC)
- Blind Spot Detector (BSD)
- Rear-Cross Traffic Alert (RCTA)
- Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS)
- Speed Limit Information Function (SLIF)
- High Beam Assist (HBA)
On the inside, the i30 Fastback gets an optional eight-inch touch screen of the new-generation navigation system including connectivity features, such as Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The i30 Fastback is also available with a wireless charging system for smartphones with the Qi standard. Customers can choose between different audio options: the standard monochrome five-inch display radio with Bluetooth connectivity or the optional audio system with a five-inch capacitive LCD touch screen and an integrated dynamic rear-view camera.
The powertrain line-up of the i30 Fastback consists of two downsized turbocharged petrol engines, which were newly launched in the i30 range. Customers can choose between the 1.4 T-GDI turbocharged four-cylinder engine with 140 PS or the 1.0 T-GDI turbocharged three-cylinder engine with 120 PS. The 1.4-litre T-GDI petrol engine is offered with the six-speed manual transmission or the seven-speed dual clutch transmission. The 1.0 T-GDI is offered with the 6MT.
The i30 Fastback’s powertrain line-up will be further expanded with the addition of a newly developed, efficient 1.6-litre four-cylinder turbocharged diesel engine available with two power outputs: a version with 110 PS and a ‘high power’ version with 136 PS. Both versions will be available with the six-speed manual transmission or seven-speed dual clutch transmission.
