Over the years we’ve seen numerous automotive trends come and go but if there’s one type of car that has enjoyed seemingly unwavering popularity, it’s the hot hatch. So, in a world of high-performance hatchbacks, the Hyundai i30 Fastback N stands out, by being sleeker and classier-looking than your everyday hot-hatch. Dare to be different!
The all-new Hyundai i30 Fastback N is a car with striking sporty looks and exhilarating performance to match, but reassuringly the N Badged Hyundai Fastback wants to impress you with its abilities rather than scare you, making it an incredibly easy car to drive fast.
Born in Namyang, Korea and honed at the famous Nürburgring in Germany the Hyundai N logo stands for ‘Pure Performance’
Namyang and Nürburgring collectively form the foundation of the Hyundai N Badge. Namyang is the heart of Hyundai Motor’s research & development network, while the Nürburgring as the world’s most challenging race track needs little introduction, and is where the Fastback N’s high-performance was honed. The Nürburgring played a crucial role in the developing, testing and perfecting of the predictable, yet responsive handling and vigorous acceleration that characterises the Hyundai i30 Fastback N.
The Fastback i30N delivers real driver engagement and punchy performance in a genuinely desirable package. Powered by the newly developed 2.0 T-GDi 275PS turbocharged petrol engine that seamlessly delivers high responsiveness and a rich torque curve of up to 378 NM that grabs your attention, punching hard from less than 2000rpm all the way to the red-line. This is a car that can make devastatingly rapid pace across winding country roads, not just on the motorway!
The i30 Fastback N features front-wheel drive, six-speed manual transmission, adaptive dampers, launch control and a range of five driving modes from Eco through to a customisable ‘N’ mode with a press of a button on the steering wheel. An electronically controlled limited-slip differential helps to get all that power to the large 19-inch wheels, fitted with sticky Pirelli P Zero tyres, and is perhaps the main reason for the i30 Fastback N’s blistering performance by providing corner-exit grip that is impossible to achieve with a normal differential.
The launch control system provides maximum traction for the fastest possible launch by regulating the amount of torque delivered to the front wheels in order to reduce wheel spin or slip during hard acceleration from a standing start. Other exciting features include ‘Rev-matching’ activated by a button on the steering wheel to enjoy the fastest, smoothest downshifts whether you're on a race circuit or a challenging road by synchronizing the engine and gearbox speed for the next gear during the shift process. Coupled with a rich sounding ‘Active Variable Performance Exhaust System’ the engine sounds enthrallingly raw, making all sorts of pops and bangs on the overrun, suitably addictive!
