Hyundai’s first hot-hatch: i30 N

Hyundai has announced the pricing and specification of its first hot hatch; the i30 N.  It goes on sale in the UK on January 4 2018, priced from £24,995 (on the road)

This is the first performance model under the Hyundai N sub-brand supported by Hyundai’s dedicated High Performance Division.

Auto Performance Modifications

The Hyundai i30 N is available in two specs, the i30 N and i30 N Performance. Both models receive N specific interior/ exterior equipment as well as other performance mods.  Welcome some sexy 18” alloy’s with Michelin Pilot Super Sports, e-Controlled Suspension and bigger brakes.

Hyundai i30N Allow Wheel

The i30 N’s Torque Vectoring System and the ability to customise engine and suspension settings from the steering wheel’s Drive Mode Buttons.

The 2.0-litre turbocharged petrol engine develops 250PS and 353Nm of torque - letting the i30N reach 62MPH in just 6.4 seconds.

Upgrade to the £27,995 i30 N Performance and acquire additional performance-specific equipment such as 19” alloy wheels with Pirelli P-Zero tyres. Electronic Limited Slip Differential and even bigger brakes.

Crackle & pop to go

A bit of leather and suede adorns the seats with electrical operation and to make sure you know this car is a hot-hacth, the Active Variable Exhaust System provides the manufacturers idea of "street-credentials" with a very posh ‘crackle’ and ‘pop’ sounding mention apparently from the exhaust when in N or Custom drive mode.

In the poshest voice we can summon, "please remember Viezu for your genuine bespoke aftermarket upgrades on this one!"

In the meantime - Viezu verdict – This hot-hatch is engineered by Hyundai’s dedicated High Performance Division – currently headed up by the ex-head of BMW’s M division; so should be very interesting to see what’s being delivered up.
