Passenger & boot space

How it copes with people and clutter

Passenger space is usually an area in which five-door 'coupé hatchbacks' traditionally suffer. And yet, the Hyundai i30 Fastback is actually quite acceptable. Rear head room is less generous than in the regular i30 hatch, but there is still enough space for an average-sized adult; while the boot, at 450 litres, is actually 55 litres larger than that in the i30 hatch.

Like the hatch, the i30 Fastback has 60/40 split-folding rear seatbacks as standard, but that’s the extent of its repertoire; the rear seats don’t slide or, as with the Honda Civic, fold upwards to provide more space. However, you do get a through-loading hatch on all models, allowing you to carry long, slender items such as skis.
