2022 Hyundai i30 N Fastback price and features: Style-focused Subaru WRX and Skoda Octavia RS rival returns as high-performing Limited Edition

The facelifted i30 Fastback N won’t be a permanent member of Hyundai’s model line-up moving forward.

As expected, Hyundai Australia has confirmed the facelifted i30 Fastback N will be sold locally, albeit only as a Limited Edition variant that is now available to order until September 30, with a maximum of 500 examples up for grabs.

The style-focused liftback is identically priced to the facelifted i30 N hatchback’s Premium grade with a sunroof, at $49,000 plus on-road costs for the six-speed manual or $52,000 for the eight-speed dual-clutch automatic, although the i30 Fastback N Limited Edition’s panoramic item costs $1500 extra.

Like the i30 N hatchback and the all-new i30 Sedan N that will permanently replace the i30 Fastback N in Hyundai Australia’s model line-up, the Limited Edition is motivated by a 2.0-litre turbo-petrol four-cylinder engine, which develops 206kW of power at 6000rpm and 392Nm of torque from 2100-4700rpm.

That said, peak power is increased to 213kW with the optional eight-speed dual-clutch automatic’s N Grin Shift mode. With launch control engaged, this combination helps the i30 Fastback N Limited Edition to sprint from a standstill to 100km/h in 5.4 seconds while on the way to its 250km/h top speed.

Standard equipment in the i30 Fastback N Limited Edition includes rev-match functionality, an electronic limited-slip differential, adaptive suspension, a variable sports exhaust system, dusk-sensing LED lights, rain-sensing wipers, 19-inch forged alloy wheels, Pirelli P Zero HN tyres, red brake callipers, power-folding side mirrors with puddle lights, keyless entry, rear privacy glass and a lip spoiler.

The style-focused liftback is identically priced to the facelifted i30 N hatchback’s Premium grade with a sunroof. The style-focused liftback is identically priced to the facelifted i30 N hatchback’s Premium grade with a sunroof.

Inside, push-button start, a 10.25-inch touchscreen multimedia system, satellite navigation, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto support, digital radio, a 4.2-inch multifunction display, a wireless smartphone charger, a heated steering wheel, heated front N Light sports seats, dual-zone climate control, alloy sports pedals, suede/leather-appointed upholstery and an auto-dimming rearview mirror feature.

Advanced driver-assist systems in the Subaru WRX and Skoda Octavia RS rival extend to autonomous emergency braking (with pedestrian detection), lane-keep assist, cruise control, driver attention alert, a reversing camera, front and rear parking sensors, and tyre pressure monitoring.
