2019 Hyundai i30 Fastback N Review & Changes – Hyundai has become on a roll lately adding enjoyable-to-drive cars. First, it decreased the Europe-only i30 N hatch, which, by all profiles, is amazing. It then presented us American citizens the Veloster N and the Genesis-branded G70 sedan. Now, it’s fallen another performance car, and this time, it’s a small four-door. Meet up with the 2019 i30 Fastback N.
The i30 Fastback N is essentially similar to its hatchback sibling save for the elongated rear end. Having an optionally available performance package, it makes 271 horsepower from a 2.0-liter turbo-four, delivering power to the front wheels only via a six-speed manual transmission. You get 247 horsepower without having the performance package, which continues to a great deal. Equally, versions make 260 lb.-ft. of torque, and both have a top speed of 155 mph. The performance pack trim will get to 60 mph in just 6.1 seconds, although the base car does the exact same sprint in 6.4 seconds. You get electronically controlled torque vectoring, rev-complementing, and five diverse drive modes.
From the front, the new i30 Fastback N looks indistinguishable from the hatch, sporting a mean fascia, a red-colored splitter, and a blacked-out grille having an “N” badge. The back is whereby it will get unusual, although, with a sloped roof trailing into the trunk region (for this reason the Fastback brand). The i30 Fastback N receives its own unique rear fender, a dual-exit exhaust, and a blacked-out lip spoiler. The interior is identical to the hatch, down to the steering wheel, infotainment system, and red distinction sewing.
Of course, due to the fact we currently have the Veloster N here, Hyundai won’t provide the i30 Fastback N to the States (even though it does sound like the perfect Mercedes A-Class rival to us). We’ve arrived at out to the company and it confirmed there are no plans to take it over. Even though we don’t get the i30 Fastback N, there’s an opportunity Hyundai could present an N version of its Elantra sedan for our market rather-but that’s just supposition at this point. We’ll just have to hope.
