The 2022 Hyundai i30 N Fastback has returned to Australian shores for a limited time before the i30 N sedan arrives. Just 500 units of the updated Fastback are slated for the Australian market, priced from $49,000 plus on-road costs for the manual or $52,000 for the new eight-speed dual-clutch auto that will soon make its debut in N cars locally. As before, the Fastback offers a more stylish and more practical bodystyle to the i30 N hot hatch. 

“We are delighted to introduce the i30 Fastback N Limited Edition for an exclusive number of lucky high-performance customers,” Hyundai Motor Company Australia Chief Executive Officer, Jun Heo said.

“The Limited Edition builds on the i30 N’s renowned racetrack capability in an everyday sports car package, with enhanced performance and handling, and additional safety and convenience technologies.”

As with the updated i30 N hatchback, the 2022 Hyundai i30 N Fastback uses a 206kW and 392Nm 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine that’s matched to either a six-speed manual or – new for the MY22 model year – an eight-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. Hyundai claims that regardless of transmission, the i30 N Fastback will sprint from 0-100km/h in just 5.4 seconds and hit a top speed of 250km/h.
