Hyundai is sending the i30 Fastback N off in style.

The i30 Fastback N Limited Edition will be priced at $49,000 before on-roads with a manual or $52,000 with a dual-clutch auto, and is a last hurrah for the Fastback N before it’s replaced in the Hyundai range by the i30 Sedan N.

This is not the Fastback N we’ve come to know – it’s the facelifted model being introduced in Europe.

That means it gets a new nose, a new dual-clutch transmission, and a new infotainment system, along with some new options.

It won’t be coming to Australia full-time. This Limited Edition is it for the Fastback, and just 500 are bound for our shores.

Standard equipment will include:

  • N Light Seats
  • 19-inch forged alloy wheels
  • 10.25-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, DAB+ digital radio, satellite navigation
  • Wireless phone charging
  • 360mm front brake discs
  • 4.2-inch colour trip computer
  • Dual-zone climate control
  • Heated front seats, steering wheel
  • Power-folding exterior mirror
  • Keyless entry and start
  • Auto-dimming interior mirror
  • Autonomous emergency braking with pedestrian detection
  • Lane-keep assist
  • Lane-following assist
  • Front and rear parking sensors
  • Reversing camera
  • Rain-sensing wipers, automatic headlights

Power comes from a 2.0-litre turbocharged petrol engine with 206kW and 392Nm, sent to the front wheels through an eight-speed dual-clutch transmission and an electronic differential.

The same tune is used in the new i30 N hatchback. The 100km/h sprint takes a claimed 5.4 seconds.

Premium paint is a $495 option, and a panoramic glass sunroof will set you back $1500.

The Fastback N is being discontinued in Australia because it’s built in the Czech Republic, and hasn’t achieved the same cut-through as its hatchback sibling.

Its replacement, the i30 Sedan N, will be built in Korea.

Not only does it have the benefit of having a more conventional body than the four-door-coupe Fastback, it’s easier and more affordable for Hyundai to source.

The i30 Sedan N is one of four N models touching down in Australia in the second half of 2021.

Along with the facelifted i30 N hatchback, the Sedan will join the Kona N SUV and the i20 N pocket rocket that goes head-to-head with the Ford Fiesta ST.
