Hyundai i30 Fastback (2020 - )

Basically a regular hatchback with a boot, the i30 Fastback is a quirky option in an area of the market dominated by more regular five-doors, including the standard i30. The arrival of a new generation VW Golf, and the Seat Leon, Skoda Octavia and Audi A3 based on the same foundations, has forced rivals like Hyundai to up their game and this new model introduces new tech, revised looks and the option of mild hybrid engines in an effort to keep pace. If you’re after this size of car but don’t want a conventional hatchbacks alternatives to the i30 Fastback include saloon versions of the A3, Toyota Corolla or Mercedes-Benz A-Class, against which the Hyundai looks great value but struggles to make its voice heard.

Our expert review

See what our expert review team say about this car

Perhaps reflecting the Fastback’s niche appeal Hyundai has restricted the model range to just one trim and a single petrol engine, now with mild hybrid assistance in the name of improved efficiency. These systems are now becoming widespread and, although they can’t power the car on the electric motor alone like the Toyota Corolla saloon you might also be considering, they are a cost-effective way to better CO2 and mpg numbers. We got close enough to the official 47.1mpg of the automatic version we tested to suggest these figures are believable and on a par with the equivalent Audi A3 35 TFSI saloon and Mercedes A180 saloon. The Hyundai is also cheaper. The bigger thorn in its side is the comparably priced Toyota Corolla saloon, which is significantly better for company drivers on things like Benefit In Kind thanks to its full hybrid powertrain.
