Hyundai launches final N high-performance model for the year

THE hard-hitting, and highly anticipated, Hyundai i30 Sedan N has arrived in Australia, with the booted compact model offering a corner rascal character and racetrack capability, straight off the showroom floor.

Building on the foundations established by i30 N hatch, the i30 Sedan N is powered by a 206kW, 392Nm turbocharged 2.0-litre engine featuring flat power tuning and a sedan-specific, flow-optimised intake airbox.

A motorsport-derived N DCT automatic is standard, with a six-speed manual transmission offered as a no-cost option. At the same time, its racetrack-honed chassis debuts Hyundai’s new light and rigid integrated drive axle front-end.

Australian-tuned electronically controlled suspension is paired with 19-inch alloys wrapped in wide 245-section Michelin Pilot Sport 4S tyres, and a large N brake package featuring a new response-enhancing brake prefill function.

A 10.25-inch N supervision instrument cluster and 10.25-inch multimedia infotainment system headline the in-cabin tech, along with an array of comfort, convenience and driver-focused features and technologies, including track maps.

N sports front seats trimmed in black leather and positioned low hold occupants firmly in place and are complemented by an N leather steering wheel and gear knob, and N metal pedals and footrest.

A black headlining above and classy N-logoed metal scuff plates complete a sporty and high-tech premium interior.

An extensive SmartSense advanced active safety suite includes forward collision-avoidance assist, blind-spot collision-avoidance assist – rear, rear cross-traffic collision avoidance assist and lane following assist.

The i30 Sedan N also marks a significant milestone for Hyundai Australia as the final model in the enormous undertaking that was dubbed ‘18-in-18’; 18 new models launched in the Australian market in 18 months.

“We’re delighted to introduce i30 Sedan N as the fitting finale for Hyundai’s new model offensive over the past 18 months,” Hyundai Australia CEO Jun Heo said.

“i30 Sedan N delivers renowned Hyundai N fun-to-drive and racetrack capability in a striking everyday sports sedan, packed with convenience, safety and driver-focused high-performance technologies.”
