JUST five years in the past, the principle of a Hyundai ‘N’ general performance model line would’ve sounded a little bit like the solution of a advertising, ahem, ‘exercise’. Still the idea of that not just turning out to be a actuality but also a raging achievement – each critically and commercially – would’ve been even far more wacko.
We’d experienced a couple semi-first rate hottish Hyundais up to that position – the reasonably entertaining Veloster SR Turbo and the blended-blessing i30 SR – even though 2017’s third-technology i30 and Elantra SR Turbo confirmed that deep inside Namyang (and at Hyundai Motor Company Australia), someone understood what they were accomplishing.
But not even the most enthusiastic i30 supporter could have imagined that 2018’s i30 N would be these a cracking incredibly hot hatch, for these a good cost. Guided by some of the world’s very best automotive engineers, finally Hyundai experienced nailed it.
So it’s with substantially anticipation that we approach the to start with solution from ‘phase two’ of Hyundai’s N roll-out – the facelifted 2021 i30 N hatch.
