Strong Performance FIND OUT MORE

Strong Performance as Standard

The i30 N is installed with a 2.0-litre 247bhp petrol engine, which is attached to a six-speed manual gearbox. This turbocharged unit delivers 353Nm of torque, 0-60mph in approximately 6 seconds and a top speed of 155mph. Even so, it still manages to return as much as just over 40mpg, and produce a 159g/km CO2 ­emission figure.

The vehicle features four drive modes: Eco, Normal and Sport – and N, which is initiated with the push of chequer-flag-adorned button, located on the car’s steering wheel. The latter mode delivers optimal assertiveness, and is ideal for the race circuit, but also allows the driver to calibrate steering, suspension and exhaust, just the way he or she wants them.

The optional Performance Pack features a 271bhp unit that delivers the same levels of torque but allows the car to proceed from 0-60mph in roughly 5.9 seconds. Fuel-efficiency is only marginally compromised and, clocking in at approximately 39mpg.

A keyless entry system provides the owner with easy access to the vehicle, inside which is a ‘floating’ eight-inch touchscreen display. This provides control of the car’s stereo and satellite navigation system. Android Auto and Apple CarPlay feature too, facilitating the mirroring of your compatible smartphone via the i30 N’s display screen, thus helping you to drive safely. Wireless phone charging is included too, negating the need to fiddle about with cables. Bluetooth connectivity brings audio streaming options and enables hands-free telephony. USB and AUX are included too, allowing you to plug-and-play your portable media devices.

Slick Yet Safe FIND OUT MORE

Slick Yet Safe

The i30 N is based on the standard hatchback model, which comes with Euro NCAP’s highest five-star crash test rating. Accordingly, this hot hatch is fitted with a wide range of driver aids and passive safety features. Included is Cruise Control, which allows the driver to set a safe maximum speed before setting out, and Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB) features as standard too. Among other things, AEB has helped reduce rear-end collisions by 38 percent. Lane-Keep Assist ensures that the vehicle doesn’t deviate from your intended lane. Traffic-sign-recognition technology, meanwhile, uses a camera that rapidly identifies road signs, and delivers the information to the instrument panel, facilitating easy reference by the driver.

Power. Intelligently applied
Introducing the Hyundai i30 N The Hyundai i30 N is the South Korean marque’s very first hot hatch. It successfully blends family-car practicality with sporty good looks, and is capable of a significant turn of pace. This five-door car’s subtly handsome appearance will likely appeal as much to families as it will to young, free and unattached motorists, who like nothing more than spending time with friends. A five-door body style ensures that access for rear-row travellers is always straightforward, whether kids, colleagues or pals are coming along for the ride.
Cutting a Dash This purposeful-looking hatchback boasts a number of head-turning features, such as a smart rear spoiler that extends the vehicle’s roof, and light-weight 18-inch alloy wheels that are fitted with Pirelli tyres. The i30 N features an elegant, model-specific Parma Violets paint finish too. Inside, the car’s extremely supportive and eminently adjustable front sports seats are fitted with expansive seat bolsters, and the driver’s position is suitably low-slung. Choose the optional Performance Pack for 19-inch alloys, and a leather-upholstered interior, complete with power-adjustable seats. Also included is Variable Exhaust System, which adjusts the volume level of the car’s exhaust. The Performance Pack also comes with electronically activated limited-slip differential, which prevents too much power being diverted to any one wheel.
Hatchback Convenience The i30 N features a range of convenient cubby spaces, including a decently proportioned glovebox, a compartment located beneath the front armrest and sizeable door bins. The car’s 395-litre boot space, with rear seats folded, expands to a very useful 1,301 litres. With an optional Performance Pack selected, a slight concession is made to boot volume, resulting in a minimum-capacity 381-litre load space. However, one positive upshot of this is that it makes way for a stiffness bar that minimises body-roll when cornering – and enables the car to better handle bumps in the road.
