The Parkers VerdictShould you buy a Hyundai i30 Fastback?

If you're after something that's just a little different to a hum-drum hatch, the i30 Fastback is easy to recommend. It isn't designed to have widespread appeal like a regular hatchback, but we can see how some buyers will be attracted to a small saloon at this price.

All models have sleek styling – especially in sportier N Line spec, and come packed with equipment whichever trim level you opt for.

You do have to make a few sacrifices along the way – namely regarding fitting taller people in the back – but otherwise the i30 Fastback is an interesting and credible alternative to other medium-sized hatchbacks.
