The i30N is Hyundai’s first high-performance car, and the first product from Hyundai’s new N division. One variant of the i30N will be offered in Malaysia, the higher output N Performance powered by a turbocharged 2.0-litre, 271bhp, 353Nm engine with 18 seconds of overboost and six-speed manual transmission. The 0-100km/h time is 5.9 seconds. There is also the lower powered i30N with 246bhp and 353Nm of torque.

Compared to the standard i30, the i30N Performance is 8mm lower and comes with 19-inch wheels with signature red N brake callipers. Active safety features include Autonomous Emergency Braking, Driver Attention Alert, Lane Keeping Assist with corrective steering.
The hot hatch has five drive modes: Eco, Normal, Sport, N and N Custom settings, which drivers can select with just a push of a button. The N Grin control system changes the drive mode, adjusting the parameters of the engine, followed by the dampers; while activating the Electronic Stability Control (ESC), Electronic Limited Slip Differential (E-LSD), sound, steering and rev-matching. Additionally, the driver can select the rev-matching button on the steering wheel to increase the revs on the engine when shifting from a higher to a lower gear, while the car’s Launch Control helps to launch the car as quickly as possible by controlling engine torque.
There’s a new instrument cluster and a 8-inch free-floating screen with a G-Force meter for live tracking of performance. Information on the instrument cluster include a shift timing indicator to indicate when to change gears, rev counter and speedometer.
The sports seats are upholstered in a combination of faux suede and leather with the N logo stamped on the back rest. There’s an N-exclusive multi-function steering wheel.
