It is really a game-changer for us, because this is the very first five-door coupe in the c-segment.
A sloping roofline, long bonnet and muscular body
The All-New i30 Fastback is characterised by its strong stance and sporty, elongated lines, which emphasises the bonnet.
If you look at the front of the car, we’ve redesigned the bumper. Also, the Cascading Grille has been reduced in height, and underneath you can see a very wide and horizontal air intake, so this really gives width to the front of the car, and really makes it look bold and strong on the road.
Downsized turbocharged GDi engines
Van Nuffel says that Hyundai Motor offers downsized Turbo GDi engines with the All-New i30 Fastback, including a three-cylinder 1.0-litre with 120 PS and a 1.4-litre four-cylinder engine with 140 PS. The powertrain line-up will be completed with the addition of a newly developed, efficient 1.6-litre four-cylinder turbocharged diesel engine available with two power outputs: 110 PS and a “high power” version with 136 PS. Both versions will be available with the 6MT or 7DCT.
Smart connectivity features and best-in-class safety equipment
The All-New i30 Fastback offers best-in-class standard safety equipment. Van Nuffel says this feature standardises AEB (Autonomous Emergency Braking), Lane Keeping Assist, Driver Attention Alert and also High Beam Assist.
Finally, Van Nuffel discusses the All-New i30 Fastback’s smart connectivity features, which he says offers customers a wide variety of choice. This includes a standard five-inch radio and full-map navigation with an eight-inch touchscreen.
All this makes the i30 Fastback not only a very good looking car, but also a car that democratises premium design and premium features for everyone.
