The smooth five-entryway Fastback N is the third execution auto to originate from Hyundai’s youngster N division, following the i30 N hatchback and US-just Veloster N.

The Fastback N will utilize the same mechanicals, powertrain and twin-leave debilitate framework as its hatchback siblings, and could be seen moving on the same 19in wheels in our prior covert agent shots. That implies it will offer two power yields from its turbocharged 2.0-liter motor: 247bhp for the standard variation and 271bhp for the adaptation furnished with the discretionary N Performance Pack, which we drove in model shape not long ago.
