i30 N


“The Hyundai i30 N has been developed purely for the purpose of delivering maximum driving enjoyment to our customers. This is an accessible high-performance package for people who love to have a smile on their face when they drive their car on a winding road and listen to the sound of the engine. 

– Albert Biermann, President
Performance Development & High Performance Vehicle Division

Born in Namyang, honed at the Nürburgring.

The i30 N was born in Namyang, Korea, at Hyundai's global R&D centre, then honed at the Nürburgring, nicknamed the Green Hell, arguably the most challenging race track in the world and home of Hyundai’s Testing Center. It was only through a punishing development program that took in nearly 500 laps at this unforgiving circuit, and around 10,000 kilometres of testing overall, that we could make a model truly worthy of being the first to wear the N badge.

  • "Not just a great first effort for a company that’s never done a hot hatch – it’s a segment leader in almost every respect." - 29th March 2018
  • "Our advice is not to lay down your hard-earned for any hot hatch out there without giving Hyundai’s impressive new halo car a really close look." - March 2018
  • “A hot hatch at the very top of its game.” - 29th March 2018
  • “The result is not one punch, but a flurry of body blows bringing strong power, plenty of equipment, a class-leading warranty and sharper price than key opponents. It’s much more than good." - 29th March 2018

Performance, reimagined.

The i30 N has been created by a team of talented, enthusiast engineers to deliver uncompromised driving exhilaration on both road and track, without sacrificing the civility and comfort needed for daily enjoyment.

Drive it your way.

No matter what the road or driving conditions, the i30 N has a mode to suit. Choose from five individual drive modes: Eco, Normal, Sport, N or N Custom settings, activated by two dedicated buttons on the steering wheel. Crucially, all the discrete parameters of engine mapping, damper firmness, steering weight, e-LSD characteristics, stability control and exhaust sound level can be individually selected and saved via the N Custom setting, allowing unprecedented tailoring of the i30 N’s driving experience. In fact, the N Custom mode allows a possible 1,944 combinations to be selected.
