In this video Amelia reviews the 2019 Hyundai i30 Fastback N.

This car takes the best features of the i30N, ups a few and packs them in a fastback, more coupe-resembling design.

The engine is a 2 litre engine twin scroll turbo with 202 kW of power and 353 Nm of torque, or 378 Nm while in overboost.

For now it is just as powerful as the hatchback, a bit more practical, more comfortable and with better grip. Add to this the Hyundai 5-year warranty, great servicing network and support and the i30 Fastback N becomes even more appealing.

We were lucky enough to get to test the i30 Fastback N in on Australia’s own international racetrack The Bend.
