Since its introduction in March, the Hyundai i30 has been the core model for the Brand in Europe. At present, the Hyundai i30 Tourer has been joined by the Fastback variant, available by the beginning of next year. The new body type reflects Hyundai’s design language while giving it a sophisticated twist with an elegant character.
The i30 Fastback is characterized by its strong stance and sporty, elongated lines. With the reduction of the Cascading Grille’s height at the front, it appears wider and more clearly defined, emphasizing the bonnet. A lower horizontal air intake below the grille gives the i30 Fastback a charismatic front. Strong corners and an angled lower front spoiler create a muscular, proud appearance. At the front, full LED Daytime Running Lights and headlamps with a premium dark bezel round off the i30 Fastback’s visual impact.
The i30 Fastback has a sophisticated silhouette featuring typical dynamic sports coupe proportions, thanks to the elegant sloping roofline, a long bonnet and a muscular body. Its slim cabin sits on a wide body, emphasised by wide wheel arches which gives the car a strong stance. Using classic automotive design codes, the roof has been lowered by 25 mm compared with the i30 five-door, enhancing the car’s wide stance on the road, improving aerodynamics and creating a dramatic impression. From the rear, the sleek shape, inspired by the shape of a teardrop, is supported by strong shoulders with an emphasis on assertiveness. Additonally, highlights include the arched rear spoiler integrated into the tailgate and continues to the rear lights, and the C-pillar with special rear windscreen.
