There are definitely plenty of hot hatches out there that deserve the best attention from the media and customers, and one of them that meets all the requirements to become the best, is not other than the gorgeous and exclusive 2018 Hyundai i30 N.
Hyundai fans in the United Kingdom are glad to know that the all-new i30 N is set to arrive in dealerships countrywide next January, with a price tag of £24,995. Later on, its hotter sibling i30 N Performance edition will also join the club with even more goodies. This one will be priced at £27,995.
Both models look extremely appealing and aggressive at the same time, however, there are styling bits that differentiate them. According to motorward auto magazine, the 2018 Hyundai i30 N comes with the following features as standard:
“LED head and tail lights, Smart Adaptive Speed Control, Keyless Entry with Engine Start/Stop Button, 8” Touchscreen Satellite Navigation with Android Auto and Apple Car Play. i30 N also offers an array of performance equipment, including 18” alloy wheels with Michelin Pilot Super Sport tyres, Electronically Controlled Suspension, 17” ventilated front brake discs with 16” rear and manually operated hand brake. The i30 N range is available in 6 colours – Clean Slate, Polar White, Micron Grey, Phantom Black and Engine Red. Alongside these there is also a new N specific colour of Performance Blue, inspired by Hyundai Motorsports WRC and TCR programmes.”
On the other hand, the 2018 i30 N Performance adds the high-performance Active Variable Exhaust System, 19-inch alloy wheels wrapped in Pirelli P-Zero tires, 18-inch ventilated front brake discs or Electronical Limited Slip Differential.
The differences also occur under the hood as well. The standard i30 N develops 275 horsepower and 353 Nm of torque, allowing a sprint from 0 to 100 km/h in 6.4 seconds. On the other hand, the i30 N Performance is 25 horses more powerful, with the same sprint done in 6.1 seconds.
