Product Overview

Hyundai i30 III Fastback (chassis code PD) facelift is an affordable compact liftback sedan in production from 2020. It is available with a range of inline-3 and inline-4 engines that displaced 1.0 to 2.0 liters.
Compared to the hatchback, which has a rather decent styling, the liftback sedan looks awkward. To most, the hatchback is a superior choice with better handling potentials.

Sentiment Score 70%
Reviewers from autocar have found the following***:
The Hyundai i30 Fastback N has always felt a little more relaxed than its raucous hatchback sibling. Subtle but significant differences in the software and suspension settings has given it a more rounded, mature and sophisticated character. Hyundai has introduced a raft of upgrades and tweaks to both the hatchback and Fastback versions of the i30 N.

Pros
  • Rugged, mature character
  • Comfortable ride
Cons
  • No automatic gearbox
  • Lack of refinement

Reviewers from autoexpress have found the following***:
The new Hyundai i30 N is one of the sharpest hot hatchbacks money can buy. But it's still a Hyundai, which means it will always be very competitively priced, very well made, unusually well-equipped and come with that same appealingly long warranty. The car appears the same fundamentally on the outside but there are some subtle styling alterations around the nose, tail and along the side skirts that freshen the look rather than radically alter it. LED lights become standard plus there are new 19-inch wheels and tyres, wearing Pirelli P-Zeros.

Pros
  • Fantastic new DCT gearbox
  • Sleek looks
Cons
  • More expensive than rivals
  • No automatic gearbox

Sentiment Score 30%
Reviewers from autoexpress have found the following***:
New 158bhp 1.5-litre Fastback model only comes in the firm's racy N Line trim. Performance figures are brisk if not blistering, with Hyundai claiming an 8.8-second sprint from 0-62mph and a top speed of 130mph. But the sluggish dual-clutch gearbox and overly firm ride compromise the overall package and its ability as a family car.

Pros
  • Comfortable to drive
  • Racy new interior
Cons
  • Lacklustre ride quality
  • Lack of tech upgrades
  • Cramped gearbox
