Authorised dealer Komoco Motors looks set to sell the car here with the Performance Package as well as the new eight-speed dual-clutch transmission.

15 Nov 2021 | Local News : Singapore

Those interested in the facelifted Hyundai i30 N hot hatch can now register their interest with local authorised dealer Komoco Motors here.

The car is set to arrive in Singapore with five exterior colours, inclusive of the N brand-exclusive Performance Blue.

The Performance Package ups the ante to 276bhp and 392Nm of torque, 5bhp more than the pre-facelift model
And the good news does not end there, for the car also looks set to arrive here with the Performance Package included, with Hyundai Singapore listing the i30 N with a 276bhp power output and a peak torque of 392Nm from its turbocharged 2.0-litre engine.

Also arriving here is the newly available wet-type eight-speed dual-clutch transmission for the i30 N, which feeds all that power onto the road through an electronically-controlled limited-slip differential. This combination will allow the i30 N to accelerate to 100km/h from a standstill in just 5.9 seconds according to Hyundai Motor.

The new dual-clutch transmission also enables three new N performance functions on the new i30 N for even more driving fun: N Grin Shift, N Power Shift and N Track Sense Shift.

The wet-type eight-speed dual clutch transmission is also new for this facelifted version of the i 30N
N Grin Shift increases torque by allowing turbocharger overboost and maximising transmission response for 20 seconds, and can be activated via a button on the steering wheel.

N Power Shift meanwhile, engages when the car accelerates with more than 90% of throttle, mitigating any reduction in torque during upshifts to ensure maximum power is delivered to the wheels. This gives the driver a responsive feeling of dynamic acceleration when shifting.

Finally, N Track Sense Shift automatically recognises when the road conditions are optimal for dynamic driving, priming gear shifts and shift timing for optimal performance, just like a professional race car driver.

Also included as part of the Performance Package for Singapore-bound cars are the newly-developed 19-inch forged alloy wheels, which will save a total of 14.4kg of unsprung mass from the car. These will come wrapped in high-performance Pirelli P-Zero tyres specially developed for the i30 N, instead of the standard Michelin Pilot Super Sport tyres.

Expect deliveries to start in the first quarter of 2022. Prices start from $133,999 before COE. Sunroof-equipped models can be had for a $5,000 premium.
