With a variety of new features to improve both every day and high-performance driving situations, the new i30 is truly a racetrack-capable everyday sports car.
The new i30 N comes with a 2.0-litre turbocharged engine with either a six-speed manual transmission (6MT) or – for the first time – a wet-type eight-speed dual clutch transmission (N DCT).
With the standard trim, the new i30 N with 6MT delivers a maximum power output of 250PS and a maximum torque of 353Nm.
New i30 N customers can also select the Performance Package option. With the Performance Package, the engine delivers 280PS.
This is an increase of 5PS from the original i30 N, and is available with both 6MT and N DCT. The maximum torque for the Performance Package variation has been increased by 39Nm to 392Nm.
The i30 N became Hyundai’s first high-performance production car when it launched in 2017. So far, over 25,000 i30 N units have been sold in Europe.
The new i30 N builds on the success of its predecessor. As well as offering a range of design and driving enhancements, it is also equipped with more lightweight materials, resulting in more agility and better handling.
Like the previous version, the new i30 N is available in both hatchback and fastback body types.
“Since its market debut in 2017, the Hyundai N original high-performance car has received multiple outstanding reviews and awards. Drivers seeking maximum fun-to-drive on the road as well as on the track, now receive an even wider range of performance and design features, with the new Hyundai i30 N,” says Thomas Schemera, Executive Vice President and Head of Product Division at Hyundai Motor Company.
“Especially the new design, new wheels, N Light Seats and the new wet-type eight-speed dual clutch transmission, make the Hyundai N experience sportier and more convenient than ever before.”
