2018 Hyundai i30 Fastback Explained – Video
The i30 Fastback is characterised by its strong stance and sporty, elongated lines. With the reduction of the Cascading Grille’s height at the front, it appears wider and more clearly defined, emphasising the bonnet. A lower horizontal air intake below the grille gives the i30 Fastback a charismatic front. Strong corners and an angled lower front spoiler create a muscular, proud appearance. Full LED Daytime Running Lights and headlamps with a premium dark bezel round off the i30 Fastback’s visual impact at the front.
The i30 Fastback has a sophisticated silhouette featuring typical dynamic sports coupe proportions, thanks to the elegant sloping roofline, a long bonnet and a muscular body. Its slim cabin sits on a wide body, emphasised by wide wheel arches giving the car a strong stance. The wheel design was specially developed to perfectly match the i30 Fastback’s silhouette: unique 18-inch alloy wheels are available, as well as specific 17-inch alloy wheels. Using classic automotive design codes, the roof has been lowered by 25 millimetres compared with the i30 five-door, enhancing the car’s wide stance on the road, improving aerodynamics and creating a dramatic impression.
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 (targeted fuel consumption in l/100 km for the Hyundai i30 Fastback range: combined 5.5 – 5.0 l/100km, targeted CO2 emissions 125– 115 g/km*). The 1.4-litre T-GDI petrol engine is offered with the six-speed manual transmission or the seven-speed dual clutch transmission, which gives a choice of fully automatic operation or manual gear changes. The 1.0 T-GDI is offered with the 6MT. All engines come standard with the Integrated Stop and Go (ISG) system for increased efficiency. 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 6MT or 7DCT.
