It’s official now. Hyundai is getting ready to add one more i30. The fourth i30 model will feature an interesting fastback design and a five-door layout. According to information we have, the 2018 Hyundai i30 Fastback will be officially introduced at this year Geneva Motor Show that starts in a few days. However, since we couldn’t wait until the premiere, we managed to get a single spy photo of the upcoming car. More precisely, we’ve borrowed from the Korean site Motorgraph.com.
Judging by the single shot, the 2018 Hyundai i30 Fastback won’t differ too much from its wagon and hatch siblings. Okay, it sports this unique sloping rear roofline, but it also gets the distinctive five-spoke wheels, the identical side mirrors, and probably the identical rear bumper. We can’t really say whether there would be some changes in the front-end design because we haven’t seen the car from the front, but we are pretty sure it will feature the same styling cues as its brothers. This includes a redesigned hexagonal mesh grille with chromed accents and new headlights along with daytime running lights.
So what do you think, what’s going on under the hood? Well, an ultra-efficient 1.0-liter turbo three-cylinder unit will definitely power the base model, but you will be able to choose the model with 1.4 T-GDI, and a 1.6-liter turbo diesel. The topping i30 Fastback will probably use a 2.0-liter turbocharged engine. The gasoline mill is capable of producing up to 271 horsepower and it also sports electronically-controlled front limited-slip differential.
Stay tuned for updates.
