This should help make it the sportiest variant of the regular i30 range, and only to be eclipsed by the new i30 N that will be the first vehicle from Hyundai's new N high-performance sub brand.
Hyundai has introduced i30 N, its first ever hot hatchback, which is expected to be launched in February 2018. At the rear. The stubby design at the rear is a unique stand out feature for Hyundai. Grip is guaranteed by the 18-inch Michelin or 19-inch Pirelli high-performance Hyundai N tyres.
The i30 N passengers are held in by sports seats with lumbar support adjustment.
Visually, there's an aggressive body kit with air intakes to feed that turbo engine and the front splitter and rear spoiler help to create downforce.
The i30 N is powered by a 2.0-litre turbocharged engine available with the two power outputs: the Standard Package engine delivers 250bhp whereas the Performance Package engine's maximum power is boosted to 275bhp. The 250bhp version accelerates to 100 kmph in 6.4 seconds while the 275bhp lessens the time taken to just 6.1 seconds. Hyundai also offers an optional wireless charging facility. As of now, it will not be automatic and will have 6-speed manual gearbox.
This Hyundai's even got launch control function which controls engine torque when starting from standstill to avoid excessive wheel spin and slingshot acceleration.
"The Hyundai i30 N has been developed for no other objective than to deliver maximum driving fun to our customers in an accessible high-performance package", says Albert Biermann, executive vice president Performance Development and High Performance Vehicle Division. Customers will get to choose from 12 exterior colours. The different modes change the character of the auto, adjusting the engine, dampers, Electronic Stability Control (ESC), Electronic Limited Slip Differential (E-LSD), sound, steering and rev-matching. It has an annual production capacity of 350,000 cars.
