Added: 14 July 2017

The first ever product of the South Korean car maker’s N-line i30 N - a high performance car aimed to take on the likes of Golf GTI and Ford Focus ST and provide motor enthusiasts with a fantastic sports car. Everything about this model has got that sporty feel Hyundai is striving to deliver. The car was created at Hyundai R&D centre, Namyang and tested at the challenging Nürburgring race track, inspiring the N in the name which also symbolises the shape of the chicane corner where i30 N was repeatedly tested until the desired result was achieved.

Even though the car has been designed to withstand any race track surface, the different driving modes allow for a comfortable and smooth ride whenever needed. i30 N will have a 2.0 litre turbocharged engine and a 6-speed manual gearbox fitted as standard but rumour has it there may be an automatic option available in the future. As explained by top management, the aim of the car is to bring fun to the driver and enhance the driving experience by delivering an outstanding performance on the road. The car features a front cascading grill, hot hatch shape and N-badged alloy wheels on high-performance tyres all of which reinforce the high-performance feel of the car.

The second model unveiled in Germany was the newest in the i30 range, i30 Fastback. Characterised by its sleek saloon shape and elegant lines, the car is the first 5-door coupé produced by Hyundai, magnificently striking the balance between sophistication and performance. The aerodynamic proportions of the car are further enhanced by lower rooflines and chassis as compared to previous i30 versions.

Powered by either 1.4 T-GDI turbocharged four-cylinder or 1.0 T-GDI turbocharged three-cylinder engine, depending on customers’ personal preferences, i30 Fastback is built to deliver flawless driving experience. Customers will also be able to choose between a six-speed manual transmission or seven-speed dual clutch control.

The specs for the UK versions of the two vehicles are yet to be confirmed, as i30 N is planned to enter the UK market at the end of 2017, followed by i30 Fastback release early on next year.
