WHATCAR? Best Hot Hatch £20,000 - £30,000 (2018). Born on the track – the blistering performance of the i30 N is powered by a newly developed 2.0T-GDi turbocharged engine.  Newly developed four-cylinder 2.0 T-GDi engine is highly responsive with a rich torque curve supported by an over boost function that temporarily increases torque by 8%. i30 N features front-wheel drive and a six-speed manual transmission. N Performance models use the same 2.0 T-GDi petrol engine as i30 N (250) models but benefits from an additional 25 PS; boosting total power output to 275 PS. The torque figure remains at 353 Nm but is spread over a wider rev range to suit the demands of more track focussed driving. Developed in-house, the traction and stability control is like a good co-pilot, helping when necessary but otherwise being quiet, never disturbing your driving fun. If desired, it can be switched off completely. High performance cornering capabilities for maximum fun. The i30 N Performance is fitted with an electronic limited slip differential specifically designed and engineered by Hyundai to tackle even the most challenging corners. It applies varying torque levels to each of the driven wheels, reducing wheel slip and minimising understeer in corners. The variable exhaust valve fitted to i30 N Performance lets you select different levels of exhaust sound – relatively restrained in Normal mode, to the crackling "after-burn" growl in N mode with added fuel detonations, like a rally car during fast upshifts. Launch control helps to accelerate i30 N in the quickest time from a standstill. By regulating the amount of available torque sent to the front wheels, wheel spin is minimised. Hit the steering wheel button to enjoy fast, smooth downshifts. Rev-matching automatically blips the throttle on downshifts to synchronize the rotational speeds of the engine and transmission, optimising braking performance.

High-quality interior materials and dark metal inserts underline the elegant sporty character of the i30 N and its motorsport roots. *Black suede and leather available on Performance model.

The i30 N instrument cluster is customised for passionate drivers. Featuring a 5 LED shift timing indicator to support track driving, the red zone of the variable LED rev-counter also changes according to the driving performance and varies with the engine’s oil temperature. You can monitor engine oil temperature, torque, and turbo boost in the cluster.


The glossy black rear spoiler with its integrated triangular LED brake light improves aerodynamics by reducing lift.

Sporty rear bumper. The aggressively sculpted rear bumper also features a red accent line between the chromed twin exhaust tips.

Side accents include glossy black outside mirrors and black side sills for sleek contrast.

Horizontal LED daytime running lights are positioned on top of air intakes on both sides of the car’s front bumper.


Operating in three stages using camera sensors, it warns the driver visually and audibly. In a second step, it controls the brakes according to the collision danger stage, and in a third stage applies maximum braking force to avoid a collision or minimise damage if a collision is unavoidable.

Forward collision warning (FCW) uses the front camera to detect the potential for any frontal collision and alert the driver of the danger.

Active head restraints, airbags and anti-lock breaks come as standard.


Advanced connectivity. There’s even a centrally located wireless charging pad (Qi standard) for easy, cable-free, charging of a compatible smartphone.

Engine start / stop button eliminates the need to insert the key into the ignition. As long as you have the key with you, the i30 N can be started and turned off with a simple push of the button.

Front and rear parking assistance along with 8" touchscreen SAT NAV.
