2018 Hyundai i30 Fastback unveiled

Hyundai shows third i30 body style

We have to admit that we didn’t see this one coming – a fastback version of the Hyundai i30!

Unveiled overnight in Europe, the Hyundai i30 Fastback is not yet confirmed for Australia, however we will keep you updated.

In unveiling the third i30 body style (after hatch and wagon), Hyundai told us the first customer deliveries in Europe will begin early next year.

Featuring a “sophisticated silhouette with typical dynamic sports coupe proportions”, the i30 Fastback boasts a roofline 25mm lower than the hatch.

But it isn’t just different on the top and at the rear – the Fastback also gets wider wheel arches and some different styling at the front, including a different bonnet.

It’s all designed to create a dramatic impression according to Thomas Bürkle, Chief Designer at the Hyundai Design Centre Europe.

“The i30 Fastback is a real game-changer.

“We are the first volume brand to enter the compact segment with a stylish and sophisticated 5-door coupé,”

“When designing the i30 Fastback we played with the proportions of the i30 range by reducing the height of the Cascading Grille and lowering the roof line.

“The elegant silhouette is further emphasised by the generously arched rear spoiler shape.

“Our team was able to achieve a pure design, which combines the sports car spirit with the comfort of a luxurious sedan.

“With this innovative approach to compact cars, we enable our customers to make an expressive statement when driving the Fastback.”
