2019 i30 Fastback N officially revealed

HYUNDAI has revealed the new 2019 i30 Fastback N in Europe ahead of its official unveiling at the 2018 Paris Motor Show in early October; set to build on the success of its hot hatch i30 N Performance sibling, launched last March to critical acclaim.

The sophisticated five-door Fastback N is the second high-performance model from Hyundai’s N Performance division (or third if you count the US-only Veloster N), and offers a sporty new GT coupe shape.

The Hyundai i30 Fastback N incorporates many of the design signatures of the hatchback, including the dynamic-looking N Grille, and N front and rear bumpers, both highlighted by a red character line. A blacked-out side sill further underscores the model’s sportiness.

Its rear visual features a twin-muffler exhaust and a cohesive rear spoiler that flows neatly into the line of the lift-back. A glossy black accent is inserted to highlight the spoiler and further develop the N performance theme.

The centrepiece in the new i30 Fastback N’s crisp, understated interior is the exclusive N steering wheel with characteristic red N stitching, which ties in with red stitching on the gear shifter and seats.

The i30 Fastback N’s high-performance focus does not bring cabin compromise. High practicality and everyday usability are ensured, with a generous 450-litre cargo area, which expands to hold 1,351 litres when the rear seat backs are folded flat.

The new 2019 i30 N will feature the 2.0-litre turbocharged engine first introduced in the i30 N hatchback. Like the i30 hot hatch, the Fastback N is offered in Europe in both Standard and Performance iterations.

The Standard Package engine delivers 184kW and uses 7.0-litres/100km on the official combined cycle. The Performance Package engine generates a maximum power of 202kW and uses 7.1-litres/100km on the official combined cycle.

Complete Australian pricing and specifications will be available closer to the local launch of the Hyundai i30 Fastback N in the first quarter of 2019, but we would expect Hyundai Australia to choose to offer the Performance Package here.
