Latest News: High Wycombe, 14th January – Hyundai Motor UK has officially announced the pricing and specification of the i30 Fastback N, which will go on sale in the UK on 21 January. The i30 Fastback N is Hyundai’s second performance model for Europe, engineered by the Company’s dedicated High Performance Vehicle Division. It is the first five-door hot coupe in the C segment and combines the sophisticated and elegant design of the i30 Fastback with the exhilarating performance and fun-to-drive characteristics of the i30 N Hatchback. Priced at £29,995 on the road, the i30 Fastback N is available as a standalone model powered by the 2.0-litre T-GDi engine, which pushes 275PS & 353Nm torque through the electronically controlled limited slip differential. The chassis performance of the Fastback N has been enhanced, with refinements made to the suspension in terms of settings and material changes to further improve dynamic performance whilst also improving ride quality and comfort. As well as the distinctive body shape, the i30 Fastback N features a number of bespoke exterior features which differentiate it from the hatchback, including the N signature triangular lamp used as a fog lamp on the diffuser and a reflective character line on the rear bumper. Interior visual changes for the Fastback N include red stitching to the heated leather and suede seats and the heated leather steering wheel. Red stitching is also used to detail the gear lever, applied to the gear lever gaiter and gear lever itself, which also incorporates a red feature stripe and N logo. Interior detailing is completed with red surrounds to the driver and passenger side air vents. i30 Fastback N also offers an array of performance equipment, including 19” alloy wheels with Pirelli P-Zero tyres that share the “Hyundai N” specific compound with the i30 N Hatchback, Electronical Limited Slip Differential and 345mm ventilated front brake discs with 300mm rear, Electronically Controlled Suspension and manually operated hand brake. Performance orientated equipment continues with the i30 Fastback N’s Torque Vectoring System and steering wheel mounted N drive mode buttons, where the driver can access and customise engine and suspension settings. Carried over from its hatchback sibling, the i30 Fastback N is also equipped with the Active Variable Exhaust System, allowing the vehicle to reveal its playful character when in N or Custom drive mode. Other equipment, shared with the i30 N Hatchback, includes Launch Control, Rev Match Function which eliminates the need for heel and toe gear changes and Brake Control knock back pre-fill to maximise braking response after high g-load cornering. As found elsewhere within the i30 range, the i30 Fastback N features a high level of standard specification including LED head and tail lights, cruise control, keyless entry with engine start/stop button and a standard 8” Touchscreen Satellite Navigation system, that includes Android Auto™ and Apple Car Play™, and the addition of N specific functions such as drive mode display, suspension, engine and transmission set up, lap timer, acceleration timer and performance gauges including engine torque, turbo boost and g force display. The i30 Fastback N’s instrument cluster is shared with the i30 N, using a 4.2” LCD to display a number of drive mode and vehicle control settings, shift timing lights and a variable LED tachometer, with a maximum engine rev light which adjusts according to engine temperature. The cluster also features soft blue lighting and the Hyundai N logo. The i30 Fastback N is available in 6 colours, including the all new Shadow Grey colour, which is specific to the Fastback N. Other colour choices available include the N signature colour Performance Blue, as well as Polar White, Micron Grey, Phantom Black and Engine Red. Ashley Andrew, Managing Director Hyundai Motor UK said, “The i30 N Hatchback surprised many at its launch and has quickly gone on to become an established performer in the hot hatch sector. The i30 Fastback N will cater for those wanting hot hatch performance but with a more distinctive and elegant style.” All i30 N models come with Hyundai’s industry leading 5 Year Unlimited Mileage Warranty, 5 Year Annual Health Check, Roadside Assistance and 12 Year Anti Corrosion Warranty.

HYUNDAI IONIQ NAMED UK?S BEST HYBRID

HYUNDAI IONIQ NAMED UK?S BEST HYBRID

Hyundai Motor scooped another top accolade at the 2018 What Car? Awards. The IONIQ Hybrid was named as the UK’s ‘Best Hybrid’, while the high-performance i30 N was commended as the ‘Best Hot Hatch for £20,000-£30,000’.

The awards, judged by members of the What Car? road-test and editorial team, praised the IONIQ Hybrid for its cost, equipment and driveability and the all-round performance capability of the i30N.

Steve Huntingford, Editor of What Car? said, "In the last year, we've seen a huge increase in the number of people reading about hybrid cars on whatcar.com, which is why we felt it was important to recognise the best models in the class.

Toyota may have had the market for affordable hybrids pretty much sewn up with the Prius but now there’s a top-notch alternative in the shape of Hyundai’s IONIQ. More than any other car, the IONIQ shows that you can now drive a hybrid without having to accept any compromises. Not only is it clean, temptingly priced and cheap to run, but it's more practical, better equipped and better to drive than its rivals. "

Hyundai’s all-new i30 N high-performance hatchback was acknowledged as the Best Hot Hatch for £20,000-£30,000, with the What Car? team praising both the i30N and the i30N Performance’s cornering talents, playful handling, and accessible prices. Both models feature electronically controlled suspension, torque vectoring, launch control and rev-matching as standard.

What Car? Editor, Steve Huntingford, said: “If you had told us a year ago that Hyundai would soon have one of the world’s best hot hatches in its ranks, we’d have been dubious to say the least. But the Korean brand really has gone from zero to hero, bettering established rivals such as the Focus ST and the Volkswagen Golf GTI with its first serious attempt at building a car in this class.”

Tony Whitehorn, President and CEO, Hyundai Motor UK, said, “We are hugely proud to see the IONIQ take top honours as the UK’s Best Hybrid. The IONIQ is representative of the shift that is currently taking place in the car market where consumers are now embracing low emission alternatives. The IONIQ which is available in Hybrid, Plug-In and Electric versions means that we are able to offer even greater choice for our customers. 

“The i30 N is also another good example of offering choice – it is our first hot hatch and its all-round package of style, equipment, price and state-of-the art high performance technologies make it a fast and fun alternative to the more established names.”

The IONIQ and i30 N both come with Hyundai’s industry-leading five-year unlimited mileage warranty and roadside assistance package. Standard equipment also includes the latest active safety features, such as Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist, Lane Keeping Assist, and Intelligent Speed Limit Warning.
