2019 Hyundai i30 N Fastback: GTI performance in a more practical body

The 2019 Hyundai i30 N Fastback is just like the i30 N hatch, but with a more practical (and we think better looking) liftback body.


Like the i30 N hatch, the fastback will be available in both standard and Performance trims, both with a 2L turbo I4 gas engine.

The standard car has 184kW (247hp), and 0-100km/h time of 6.4s. The Performance model has 202kW (271hp), and a 0-100km/h time of 6.1s.

Both models have 353Nm (260 lb-ft), and 378Nm (279 lb-ft) available on overboost.

Like the i30 N hatch, the Fastback has wider fenders, 18″ wheels, sport bucket seats, a flat bottom steering wheel, and retuned suspension and steering.

The only transmission available is a 6-speed manual, although a 7-speed DCT is due later in 2019.
