INTRODUCING THE HYUNDAI I30 N
HYUNDAI’S FIRST EVER HOT-HATCH ARRIVES AT CARS2

- Powerful 2.0-litre T-GDi turbocharged engine delivers 250 PS.
- Optional performance pack boosts output up to 275 PS.
POWER – INTELLIGENTLY APPLIED
The Hyundai i30 N’s powerful T-GDi engine generates 353 Nm torque from 1,500 – 4,700 rpm, rising to a maximum of 378 Nm when in overboost. i30 N is therefore teamed with advanced racing inspired features including a launch control system which manages engine torque off the line. Plus a quick-shifting 6 speed manual transmission with shift timing indicator and rev matching technology to achieve perfect downshifts every time.
INSPIRED BY MOTORSPORT
It’s not just the unique Performance Blue paintwork that’s inspired by Hyundai Motorsport’s world rally cars. The i30 N’s aggressive bumpers, air intakes and rear spoiler apply racing dynamics, using natural airflow to reduce turbulence and lift, providing better balance at speed.
In high performance driving, small details make a big difference. Under the skin, larger, uprated brakes are complimented by lowered, electronically controlled suspension (ECS). An electronic limited slip differential (E-LSD) on performance pack editions improves traction and handling.
