Hyundai announces i30 Fastback prices
December 6, 2017
Hyundai has announced the pricing and specification of the i30 Fastback, which will go on sale in the UK on January 18.
The i30 Fastback is the final addition to the i30 range boasting a roofline that is lowered by 30 millimetres compared with the i30 Hatchback, enhancing 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 signature cascading grille has been reduced for i30 Fastback to give a wider stance, a more clearly defined look and to emphasise the bonnet. A lower horizontal air intake below the grille and an angled lower front spoiler gives the i30 Fastback a distinctive front. Redesigned LED daytime running lights mounted in the new front bumper and headlamps with a dark surround round off the i30 Fastback’s visual differences over the i30 Hatchback and Tourer.
The i30 Fastback is available in three trim levels: SE Nav, Premium and Premium SE, with specifications mirroring the i30 Hatchback and Tourer models. The 1.0 T-GDi and 1.4 T-GDi petrol engines are also carried across from the i30 Hatchback and Tourer, with i30 Fastback introducing the 1.0 T-GDi to the Premium and Premium SE trim levels for the first time.

Powertrain choices remain as per the SE Nav, with 1.4 T-GDi equipped models featuring a new 18-inch alloy wheel design (17-inch on 1.0 T-GDi).
The i30 Fastback Premium SE is available from £23,405 for the 1.0 T-GDi 120PS 6-speed manual and adds panoramic sunroof, leather seat facings and a heated steering wheel to the Premium specification.

The Fastback shares the high level of standard safety equipment seen on the rest of the i30 family, with lane departure warning system, forward collision warning system, lane keep assist, autonomous emergency braking and hill start assist control featuring on all models. In addition, blind spot detection system and rear cross traffic alert are also standard equipment on Premium and Premium SE models.
Tony Whitehorn, President and CEO 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. The i30 models all share a core family DNA of connected technologies, powertrains and safety equipment, yet each model has its own set of abilities, be it the Hatchback with its family friendly economy and equipment, the Tourer with its mixture of large interior space and powerful yet efficient diesel engines, the N with its total focus on driving fun and now the Fastback with its own charismatic exterior style.”
