In the spring of 2024, Hyundai’s fans expected to see a new generation of the i30 lineup, but instead of that, the automaker unveiled a second facelift for the nameplate’s third generation.

The Korean automaker introduced the i30 in 2006, replaced it with a second generation in 2011, and then introduced a third iteration in 2016. After all this rush, Hyundai slowed down its pace. It focused on developing new platforms that are ready to receive electrified drivetrains. As a result, its engineers had their hands full with other projects, so the i30 got refreshed in 2020. Then, the pandemic and the microchip crisis started, shaking the entire world. As a result, instead of a new i30 generation, customers were left with a second facelift of this model, which the car manufacturer introduced in the spring of 2024. While it was a mild upgrade, it kept the i30 on the market, waiting for Hyundai’s decision on whether it would launch a fourth generation or ditch the nameplate completely. The Fastback version targeted customers who needed more luggage space than in the regular hatchback but didn’t like the shape of the station wagon. Despite its not-so-great sales, the model was also refreshed along with its siblings.

There was a need for a keen eye for detail to see the differences between the 2024 i30 Fastback and its predecessor. However, the car came fitted with standard LED headlights, a feat that was available only as an option before. Furthermore, its main grille and the lower-mounted A-shaped ones sported a piano-black finish instead of the gray one available for the 2020 model year. Another change was for the side scoops, which housed round fog lamps and also a high-sheen black finish.

Despite being a regular commuter vehicle, the car’s profile boasted a sporty appearance. It still sported the same chromed trims around its windows, but at least it came with new options for the standard 16-inch alloy wheels. In addition, Hyundai offered the 2024 i30 Fastback in a choice of 12 colors, seven of which were new. Finally, at the back, the automaker installed slightly redesigned LED taillights that echoed the DRLs installed on the headlamps.

Inside, the 2024 i30 Fastback had a slightly refreshed cabin. It included a new color for the crash pad that made it look smoother. The instrument cluster that face the driver featured two large dials for the speedometer and tachometer and flanked a 4.2-inch LCD that showed additional data from the car’s onboard computer. In addition, a 10.25-inch touchscreen for the infotainment system was placed atop the center stack. It also features OTA (over-the-air) updates for the map and supports Android Auto and Apple CarPlay connections. Hyundai also provided the i30 Fastback with a choice of four upholstery, ranging from regular cloth to upscale-looking leather interiors or a mix between textile sued and leather, depending on the options. In the back, the split-folding (60/40) bench seat could expand the trunk for those needing more space to place their bicycles or other items.

Under the hood, most engines were carried over from the 2020 model year. However, the automaker also provided an option for a mild-hybrid drivetrain containing a 48-volt system and an electric motor, which helped the car achieve better fuel efficiency.
