Finally, after you’ve shown covered in camouflage, the signature south Korean unveiled officially at the new Hyundai i30 N, your first proposal in the compact segment sport, who comes to face up to the Volkswagen Golf R, SEAT Leon Cupra and company.

Hyundai has been established in Europe since some years ago with its center of development, to gradually begin to adapt to the development of their new models to the taste and the needs of european customers. But recently decided to go a step even further, by launching a division of sports that adds to their models, the last “N”.

the Product of this new division sports was the brand new Hyundai i30 N, the first compact sports the signature south Korean, whose development builds more than 10,000 kilometres on the circuit at the German Nürburgring Nordschleife.

In terms of its exterior design, the Hyundai i30 N has an aggressive aesthetic that incorporates a aerodynamic package exclusive which includes a splitter front, new bumper with air inlets of larger dimensions, rear spoiler and a diffuser rear, making a set that allowed me to achieve a greater aerodynamic load.

Also has some alloy wheels of 19 inches optional, dual exhaust with variable valve, brake calipers in red color, body-on-tone exclusive, etc

In terms of the interior, there the differences compared to the conventional model become less visible. Of all modes includes a new wheel, which includes the controls to modify the modes of driving, new sports seats with upholstery in leather and Alcantara, pedals in aluminum, etc

anyway here the most important thing is what happens in the plane mechanic. The Hyundai i30 N use a turbo engine T-GDi 2.0-liter, a block of four-cylinder engine that develops 250 HP of power at 6,000 rpm and a maximum torque of 353 Nm that is delivered in the form constant between 1,450 rpm and 4,000 rpm. In addition is available an optional package called the “Performance Pack”, that raises the power of your engine to 275 HP.

The propellant is only associated to a change manual of six speeds, at least initially. This mechanical assembly allows the Hyundai i30 N accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 6,3 seconds, which decreased to 6.1 seconds for the version with 275 HP. The maximum speed in both cases has been limited to 250 km/h.

Surely, you ask in that is the “Performance Pack”. Well, basically adds an electronic control unit with a new setting that allows for an increase of 20 HP of power, while the changes do not end here. It also adds a limited-slip differential, brakes that are more powerful with front discs and 18-inch rear, 17-inch, alloy wheels of 19 inches with tires Pirelli P Zero etc

The manufacturer defines it as a sports car for everyday use, which is adjusted to the daily needs as their use in circuits. Includes five modes of driving so-called Eco, Normal, Sport, N and N Custom, adjustable via two buttons located on the steering wheel. These different modes of driving allow you to modify the character of the car, with settings that affect the stability control, the shocks, the differential, the direction and up to the sound of the exhaust, thanks to the use of a variable valve.

Also includes a system of Launch Control and a button to “Rev” on the steering wheel, which allows you to rev the engine between gear changes.

Everything indicates that the new Hyundai i30 N has everything needed to become a success right away. It only remains to wait what will be its price to know if they finally can become an alternative to the current compact sports european market.
