If this handsome stranger comes knocking at your door, grab it with both hands and don’t let go.Looks and well packaged technology combines with a keenly priced range that was gagging for a go-quick halo model. Now we have one, and it is fabulous.
Developed at the infamous Nordschleife Nürburgring, thus the “N” badge, i30 N is a track-focused road hot hatch. Since 1927, the Nürburgring has tortured cars and drivers to destruction. There is nothing more thrilling than tyres screaming for mercy.
i30n eschews the GTi monikers of the other hot-hatchers in their jaunty fake Burberry caps and thick gold chains. Instead, Hyundai, the quiet achiever, has sat in the back row learning, watching, and waiting. They then had a crack at making a halo model and got it just right.
