It has not been too long that we got to see the first glimpse of the all-new Hyundai i30 fastback, a sedan that is based on the i30 hatchback. With its distinct design, the Hyundai i30 fastback surely looks interesting and different from what we have seen from the Korean automobile manufacturer. However, if you are hoping and planning to get in India, have got news from you.
Hyundai India confirmed to OVERDRIVE that there are plans of getting the i30 fastback in the country anytime soon. It is also not in the discussions stage, stated the company. Considering the premium features that the Hyundai i30 fastback comes equipped with, we believe it will be difficult for the company to position the premium sedan in the Indian market. Hyundai presently has the Xcent as the entry-level sedan priced in between Rs 5.35lakh to Rs. 8.43 lakh, ex-Mumbai. Positioned above it is the Verna available at Rs 7.84lakh to Rs 12.69 lakh. Importantly, the company is all set to launch the new-gen Verna in India.
The 2018 Hyundai i30 fastback is powered by a 1.4 T-GDI turbocharged four-cylinder engine that makes 138PS. This motor can be optioned with a six-speed manual or a seven-speed dual clutch transmission. There is also the 1.0 T-GDI turbocharged three-cylinder motor that puts out 118PS and comes paired with a 6-speed manual transmission. Check out the detailed 2018 Hyundai i30 fastback image gallery.
