2019 Hyundai i30 Fastback N revealed


The Hyundai i30 Fastback N has been revealed ahead of its world premiere at the Paris motor show next week. It’s the second model from the company’s N Performance Division, following in the wheel tracks of the hot-selling hatch model already on sale.

The good news for Aussie punters who like the swoopier coupe-like styling is that it’s on track to arrive locally by March 2019.

The Fastback i30 N blends its more elegant, and somewhat segment-defying, silhouette with the hatchback’s menacing grille, bumpers, red character lines, and blacked-out side sills. Other design touches include a twin-muffler exhaust and a rather subdued spoiler.

Inside there’s the familiar N steering wheel with red stitching, matching the highlights on the manual gear stick and seats.

As with the hatch, the N mode screen menu inside let’s you fettle the engine, rev-matching and exhaust sound from sporty to relaxed. The multi-mode dampers will also feature.

Active safety and driving assistance technologies include Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist, Driver-Attention Warning, Lane-Keeping Assist, High-Beam Assist and Speed-Limit Warning.
