Hyundai_i30_N-Line_ (1)
In a global reveal Hyundai has released design renderings of its new i30 Sedan N-Line sport sedan. These show low and wide styling with the fascia having an edgy N-Line version of Hyundai’s signature cascading grill. There are also N-Line badging and motorsport-inspired air intake.

It has side skirts and 18-inch alloy wheels, with larger brakes showing through the wheels to indicate this is a serious vehicle, not a dressed up special.

The sculpted rear is set off by single twin exhausts and rear diffuser.

The side mirrors, N-Line window accents and side skirts are all finished in the N brand signature gloss black.

Nothing has been published yet about the engine and transmission but it seems likely the Sedan will have the same turbo-petrol engine as the current hatch which puts out 150kW and 265Nm.

“i30 Sedan N-Line offers a more aggressive design that incorporates N-Line’s signature red accents inside and out at an attractive price,” said Thomas Schemera, Executive Vice President, Head of Product Division at Hyundai Motor Group. “This will definitely satisfy those who are looking to join the Hyundai N community.”

No date has been given for the Hyundai’s i30 sedan’s launch. However we anticipate Australia will be towards the front of the field when it makes its way out of the factories as drivers here have long had a passion for hot versions of sedans and hatches.

Perhaps you should contact your favourite Hyundai dealer and get your name onto a list that may expand rapidly.
