difficult to recognize at Hyundai right now. The change is given by the hyundai brand never ceases to surprise us, for good of course. Years ago, few could imagine that Hyundai would even dare to participate in the WRC and much less that he decided to bring to market a sport of pure-strain as it will be the Hyundai i30 N.
The Nürburgring has become the common scenario of testing the i30 N
we Already knew that the sports version of the i30 was on the way. In fact what we have discovered on more than one occasion. But it is now when the brand announces in a formal way the development of the project, which already builds up a considerable amount of miles on their backs, and whose final result will surely know in the Geneva motor show 2016.
Much has been speculated about the possible performance of the i30 N. currently, the compact is able to reach up to 184 horsepower, the Hyundai i30 Turbo which we have already tested. However, and although we expected the N to raise a little the power, the brand confirms that it will use the same engine that the WRC is able to reach the 300 HP.
This does not mean that we will see a Hyundai i30 with such a horsepower, you can yes but it is not confirmed. The most logical is to think that that engine, adapted to the rules of the championship Rally, will be amended to make it more viable for the real world. Most likely you will lose power by the way, approximately 50 HP.
And this is just the tip of the iceberg. Hyundai has taken very seriously this new sporting attitude, and in the future we will see more models signed by N. Surely another that is added is a Hyundai Veloster with central engine. This has allowed to see on occasion and is the derivation of urban Hyundai RM15 Concept that we saw at the beginning of the year.
we All look forward with desire to the final outcome. Insurance that will not leave anyone indifferent, neither by its appearance, with details of their own, nor by its performance. To achieve to raise it to a level worthy of a sporty, engineers must modify a lot of components, such as the chassis, suspension or brakes. Hence the large number of kilometres of testing.
