First sightings of a development car show that the Fastback is essentially the same as the hatchback at the front, but has a more gradually sloping roofline and a longer rear overhang.
Heavy cladding covers the car’s tail-lights, but it looks as though the design is the same as that of the hatchback and estate.
Powering the Fastback will be a choice of turbocharged engines shared with the other i30 models. The entry-level unit will most likely be a 1.0-litre T-GDI three-cylinder petrol that produces 118bhp, and above that will sit a 1.4-litre four-cylinder unit with 138bhp.
The diesel engine range comprises Hyundai’s 1.6-litre unit in different states of tune, producing up to 131bhp.
