The Hyundai i30 Fastback - Connected and caring

- The i30 Fastback features a comprehensive equipment list at all specification levels, including integrated satellite navigation through an eight-inch touchscreen.

The i30 Fastback features a comprehensive equipment list at all specification levels, including integrated satellite navigation through an eight-inch touchscreen, which also incorporates Apple CarPlay™ and Android™ Auto connectivity. It features Bluetooth with voice recognition, a rear parking assist system, dynamic rear-view camera and wireless phone charging on compatible handsets (Qi standard).

The navigation system comes with a seven-year free subscription to LIVE services. LIVE Services offer updated information in real time: weather, traffic, speed cameras and online searches for points of interest. The navigation system features 3D maps and is capable of displaying photos from a connected USB stick.

Hyundai SmartSense for highest active safety

The i30 Fastback features Hyundai SmartSense active safety and driving assistance technologies to comply with the highest European safety standards: Autonomous Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection (AEB), Driver Attention Alert, Blind Spot Detection, Rear Cross Traffic Alert and the Lane Keeping Assist system. Offering the best standard safety package in the C-segment, the i30 Fastback also received the maximum five-star safety rating from Euro NCAP.

Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB)

The i30 is fitted with AEB including Pedestrian Recognition, an advanced active safety feature that alerts drivers to emergency situations, braking autonomously if required. Using front radar and camera sensors, AEB operates in three stages. Initially warning the driver visually and acoustically, it can subsequently control the brake according to the collision danger stage, and can ultimately apply maximum braking force to avoid a collision or minimise damage when a collision is unavoidable.

Driver Attention Alert (DAA)

Driver Attention Alert is a driver protection feature which helps monitor driving patterns in order to detect inattentive or fatigued driving and prevent potential accidents. The system analyses various vehicle signals such as steering angle, steering torque, vehicle position in the lane and driving time. In addition, the driver can adjust a user-selectable setting for the system’s sensitivity. If the system detects inattentive driving patterns, an audible sound and message on the instrument display panel will alert the driver.

Blind Spot Detection (BSD)

Also using radar technology, the Blind Spot Detection (BSD) with Lane Change Assist monitors the rear corners and, if another vehicle is detected, a visual alert appears on the exterior mirrors. If the driver then activates the indicators an audible signal is emitted. This also applies for a lane change situation when another vehicle is detected.

Rear Cross Traffic Alert (RCTA)

Using the BSD sensors, the RCTA system reduces the risk of a collision with approaching traffic when reversing out of narrow areas with low visibility. Using a radar to scan a 180-degree area behind the vehicle for approaching cross-traffic, RCTA alerts the driver visually and acoustically.

Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS)

The LKAS alerts the driver in unsafe movements at over 60 km/h by sensing the car’s position. The Lane Departure Warning System sounds an alarm before the car moves over white, grey and blue lines as well as Bott’s dots on the road, while the LKAS warns the driver acoustically and visually before inducing corrective steering to guide the driver back to a safe position.

Highest passive safety

Featuring a high percentage of Advanced High Strength Steel, the i30 Fastback benefits from high rigidity and a high impact energy absorption and minimised distortion to protect passengers in the event of a collision.

Around the interior of the i30 Fastback, a total of seven airbags are installed, including a knee airbag for the driver. Beside the six standard airbags (two front airbags, two side airbags, and two curtain airbags from first to second row protecting both driver and passengers), the knee airbag is an additional safety feature for the driver in the event of a front collision.
