Hyundai has developed the N range according to the same philosophy as for its racing cars. The name ‘N’ represents two important components. First, Hyundai Motor’s global R&D Centre in South Korea’s Namyang district, where the idea was born. Second, the Nürburgring, one of the most challenging racetracks in the world and home of Hyundai’s Testing Centre, where the N models are honed. The N logo itself symbolises a chicane, the ultimate corner where the high-performance N models have been further developed and tested. Since its inception in 2015, the N range has performed at the highest level, succeeding in the Nürburgring’s VLN series, the TCR International Series, the Pirelli World Challenge, and the gruelling Nürburgring 24-hour endurance race. The i30 N five-door, which came on to the market in the summer of 2017, performed likewise regarding sales: it has exceeded initial sales expectations. Almost 3,000 i30 N five-door units were sold in the first half of 2018 in Europe.

As part of Hyundai’s i30 range, the latest model is the next fun-to-drive car for enthusiasts due to be available across Europe by the end of 2018. It sports unique high-performance design features, such as the front bumper, well known from i30 N five-door, a rear spoiler with glossy black colouring, a unique rear bumper including the triangular-shaped rear fog lamp, alloy wheels as well as the N side sill. Besides all these design elements which appeal to the driver’s eye, the engine accelerates in line with the driver’s heartbeat. The power output of 250 PS in the Standard Package (not UK market) or 275 PS in the optional Performance Package will bring a smile to the customer’s face when seated behind the Hyundai i30 Fastback N’s steering wheel.

The new car is characterised by its hot, performance-focused appearance. It incorporates the body type of the i30 Fastback with its strong stance, charismatic front and sleek, teardrop-shaped cabin. To create the first hot five-door coupe in the C segment, the All-New i30 Fastback N comprises N model-specific performance design features – introduced with the i30 N five-door. Distinguishing elements which underline the N look are the unique front bumper, coupled with the prominent Cascading Grille. The family’s identity, which highlights the strong character of the car, shows clearly where the model originates. The grille features the N emblem, which additionally enhances the sense of high performance. At the front, the new model also expresses its hot and sporty appearance through the black bezel of the LED headlights as well as through the red-coloured character line which contrasts visually with the bodywork.

At the rear, it is again the dynamic-looking bumper that immediately catches the eye, supporting the car’s strong shoulders. On its lower part, the rear bumper is underlined by an elegantly shaped character line reflecting in red. Moreover, its generously arched rear spoiler integrated into the tailgate is accentuated with a glossy black line. To complete the car’s charismatic impression, the triangular rear fog lamp is integrated into the section between the dual twin mufflers, a dedicated design element of Hyundai’s high-performance range. Finally, the All-New Hyundai i30 Fastback N’s profile underlines the performance-oriented character of the car. An elegant sloping roofline, a long bonnet and a muscular body with wide wheel arches define the sports coupe’s dynamic proportions. At the car’s side, the N appearance is picked up again with the 18- and 19-inch wheels’ exceptional N design and the black side sill of the lowered body. The latest model does not compromise on interior roominess for its sporty and elegant exterior design. With a generous luggage capacity of up to 450 litres and a maximum of 1,351 litres with the seats folded flat, the car offers a high day-to-day usability.

The vehicle’s interior is equally focused on true performance features. The centrepiece of the interior is the exclusive ‘N’ sports steering wheel, which ensures the driver is in 100 percent control of all driving performance features directly by hand. It is manufactured with a red-coloured stitching. Pushing the characteristic dark metal painted N button with a chequered flag icon on the right side allows direct access to the N mode. In addition, the N mode can be accessed via customised settings which become visible on the navigation screen. On the left, drivers can select three standard drive modes: Normal, Sport and Eco. Above the N button, drivers can activate the rev button to use the Rev matching control system for better engine control. The N logo is positioned on the base of the steering wheel. The gear shift also features red stitching in line with the coherent colour design and is finished with glossy red metal paint. The air vents continue the sporty look with red-coloured trims.
