Hyundai i30 Fastback

Published: 01 Dec 2020


What should I be paying?

While the i30 hatchback and Tourer are available in a load of different trims and with a choice of engines, the Fastback is only offered in N-Line or proper N specs. If it’s the fully-fledged N you’re interested in, click on these blue words to read our review.

N-Line gets the 1.5-litre petrol engine with 48-volt mild-hybrid tech and a choice of six-speed manual or seven-speed auto gearboxes. We’d stick with the manual – Hyundai claims the auto is marginally more fuel efficient (45.6mpg and 141g/km for the manual, versus 47.1 and 136g/km for the auto), but it’s more expensive to buy in the first place and isn’t without its issues.

Standard spec is generous, with the only optional extra listed as metallic paint. You get dual-zone climate, LED headlights, the big infotainment system (with CarPlay/Android Auto) and much besides. Standard safety kit includes autonomous emergency braking and lane-keeping assist, plus a system that bongs if the car ahead of you in traffic moves away and you’re still sat there fiddling with the touchscreen or yelling at the kids.

The warranty lasts five years, however far you travel in that time, and you get a year’s worth of roadside assistance.
