The Hyundai i30 Fastback N Line – the i30 Fastback that looks like an N model – is now on sale in the UK with prices starting at £20,495.
It was last autumn when Hyundai rolled out an N Line take on the i30 Fastback, giving the car Hyundai reckon is Porsche Panamera for the masses (despite such a daft assertion, the i30 Fastback actually is an appealing choice) the looks of the i30 Fastback N – but none of the get up and go.
Now the i30 Fastback N Line goes on sale in the UK, with prices starting from £20,495 and a choice of trim levels and engines.
But whatever engine or trim you choose you get 18″ alloys, ‘N’ bumpers, rear diffuser and triangular fogs, with bigger brakes and calipers, suspension that’s a bit stiffer, stickier tyres and cloth sports seats and ‘N Line’ branding inside.
The regular Fastback N Line can be had with either Hyundai’s appealing 1.0 litre three-pot with 117bhp and six-speed manual, or the 1.4 litre turbo four-pot with 136bhp, which also has a seven-speed DCT option.
If you want a bit of extra kit – and don’t want the 1.0 litre three-pot – you can opt for the i30 Fastback N Line +, which costs from £23,495 and adds stuff like LED headlights, heated steering wheel and sports seats (trimmed in fake leather and suede), auto wipers and dual-zone climate.
Available in a choice of ten colours, the i30 Fastback N Line is now on sale at Hyundai’s UK dealers with prices starting at £20,495 for the Fastback N Line 1.0 T- GDi 120PS manual rising to £24,535 for the Fatsback N Line + DCT at £24,760.
