Hyundai i30N in Everton, Hampshire
Created just to put a grin on your face, the Hyundai i30 N is an engineering masterclass. Powered by a 2.0 T-GDI petrol engine with 250 or 275 PS in N Performance spec, power is sent to the front wheels through an electronic limited-slip differential and manual transmission with rev matching which blips the throttle on downshifts. As you pop and bang your way through the gears, you’ll find the N is setup to handle on three-way adjustable adaptive dampers. Customise your drive in N Custom mode to control engine response, rev matching, the e-LSD, exhaust sound, steering weight and more. Or just smack it into N mode and let rip. You’re going to love it.
The Hyundai i30 N is engineered for maximum driving fun on the road. It starts with the aerodynamic and aggressive body which reflects its performance credentials with a dual tip exhaust system, 18” or 19” alloys and large air intakes.
With its limited slip-differential and race-tuned chassis, the i30 N carves its way through corners with verve. 0-62mph is taken care of in just 6.1 seconds on N Performance models with 271bhp and 260 lb-ft of torque on tap.
There’s a 395-litre boot and 60-40 split-folding rear seats for loading longer items. Rear space is excellent with more than enough room for three adults or two child seats. If you do have children there’s ISOFIX points on both rear outer seats.
Living with it
Living with a hot hatch day-in, day-out should be a pleasure and living with the i30 N is. It comes as standard with parking sensors and a reversing camera, automatic LED headlights, High Beam Assist, cruise control and Lane Keeping Assist.
