The Hyundai i30 N is based on three aspects of the 'Fun to Drive' theme - the corner rascal, everyday sports car and race track capability.

22 Jul 2017 | International News : U.K.

The i30 N is Hyundai Motor's first high-performance car under the N lineup. Built on the new generation i30, the i30 N has been developed from the ground up to deliver maximum driving pleasure in everyday life on the road, as well as on the track. N was born in Namyang at Hyundai Motor's global R&D Centre in South Korea, and honed on the Nurburgring - one of the most challenging race tracks in the world and home of Hyundai's testing centre.

19-inch Pirelli high-performance Hyundai N tyres provide the i30 N with maximum grip
The i30 N is Hyundai Motor's answer to emerging customer preferences towards uncompromising innovation and technology-driven performance. Due to be launched across Europe by the end of 2017, the all new i30 N is made for people to experience a contented grin when driving a performance car.

Part of the i30 range, the i30 N sports a unique character and coherent, timeless design. This includes the cascading grille at the front, the new Hyundai signature, which is characterised by a downward tapering gesture inspired by the flow of molten steel.

The i30 N loves corners. The N logo symbolises a chicane, the ultimate part of the track where the i30 N achieves maximum traction, precision and feeling. The powerful 2.0-litre turbocharged engine delivers up to 271bhp and 353Nm torque. It offers direct response with a linear power development through the early responding turbo charger. It also features front-wheel drive and a six-speed manual transmission.

The i30 N's maximum grip is guaranteed by 18-inch Michelin or 19-inch Pirelli high-performance Hyundai N tyres. The rack-mounted motor-driven power steering is direct and offers high precision. The lowered body is rigid and - in combination with the Electronic Controlled Suspension - reduces roll and enhances cornering speed, enabling the driver to adjust the dampers from comfort-orientated daily commuting to high-performance track driving.

The i30 N is aerodynamically designed to reduce lift to keep the body firmly on to the road when maximum traction is required. An Electronic Limited Slip Differential enhances grip and delivers maximum power to the road. For real enthusiasts, the Electronic Stability Control can be switched off completely for maximum freedom. In order to give the driver and passenger maximum comfort, the exclusively developed N sport seats offer maximum stability and lateral support in all driving situations.
