I30N is Hyundai’s Halo Car, with good reason.

i30N is a peach. The hot hatch sells for $44500, and has had a couple of oily updates. The engine now has 206kw, 4kw up on the old model. The DCT has en extra cog, and a wet clutch. That’s 8 glorious speeds to be fettled by paddles, or the console lever. As a consequence, the 0-100 has improved by 0.4 seconds, to 5.4 seconds for the mad dash.

Hyundai added extra driver aids too.
