i30 Fastback shows Hyundai still developing fast
FOLLOWING the arrival of the hatchback and Tourer estate versions of its new i30 family car, Hyundai has added a four-door saloon Fastback model to the line-up.
The handsome new model goes on sale early next year.
Hyundai clearly has rather grand ambitions for the model, declaring that the Fastback "reflects Hyundai's design language while giving it a sophisticated twist with an elegant character".
"The i30 range represents the core of our Hyundai brand in Europe," said Thomas A. Schmid, chief operating officer at Hyundai Motor Europe.
"The i30 Fastback is the newest in our range, bringing a unique new approach to this popular segment.
"The sophisticated design of this model incorporates the essence of our philosophy, making premium design accessible for everyone.
"The i30 Fastback is the first elegant five-door coupe to enter the compact segment, underlining our commitment to innovation and customer choice."
