And Fast­back of­fers another sporty op­tion for i30 line-up

Auto Express - - News - PAGE 31: i30 Tourer driven

HYUNDAI has added a fourth model to the new i30 range with the in­tro­duc­tion of the Fast­back, which ar­rives in deal­er­ships in early 2018.

The Fast­back stands out from the reg­u­lar i30 hatch and new Tourer es­tate due to its sleeker five-door coupé body. It fills the gap va­cated by the pre­vi­ous three-door hatch.

There are also chas­sis and sus­pen­sion tweaks, in a bid to pair the sportier looks with more ag­ile han­dling. It sits 5mm lower to the ground, and the sus­pen­sion has been stiff­ened by 15 per cent.

It will launch with ei­ther 138bhp 1.4-litre T-GDI or 118bhp 1.0-litre three-cylin­der turbo petrol en­gines. A 1.6-litre diesel with ei­ther 109bhp or 128bhp on tap will ar­rive later, while a hot N ver­sion is also in the works for 2019 with around 300bhp.
