UPGRADED HYUNDAI i30 N FIRST INFORMATION

Hyundai Motor has revealed the first information about the latest generation of its hot hatch, the i30 N. The i30 N features revised aggressive-looking front and rear bumpers, two large exhaust pipes, a wide centre grille with the N signature, and new rear lamps and new LED headlamps with V-shaped DRLs.

The images also show newly-developed 19-inch forged alloy wheels, which are lighter than those of the previous i30 N, saving more than 14kg of unsprung mass.

Hyundai says new i30 will be available with the company’s eight-speed dual clutch transmission (N DCT), including dedicated N performance shifting functions.

More details will be revealed soon and we will bring them to you, together with our comments. Hopefully our first drive won’t be too far off.
