HYUNDAI has revealed the first glimpse of i30 sedan N, the latest addition to its high-performance N range. This is Hyundai Motors’ sixth N brand model, following the unveiling of KONA N in April this year.
The i30 Sedan N is, as the name suggests, the high-performance variant of the new i30 sedan, launched in 2020, distinguishable by its ‘Parametric Dynamics’ design theme that imparts a look of sophisticated sportiness.
Hyundai N designers took cues from the curves and lines of a sculpture to give the car a powerful and athletic stance.
“i30 Sedan N is a high-performance sedan that reveals the sportier side of our exceptional new i30 Sedan through exciting N brand enhancements,” said Till Wartenberg, VP of N brand management and motorsport at Hyundai Motor Company.
“We designed it to be a race-proven sportscar with dynamic driving capabilities and style that performance enthusiasts love. I can’t wait to unveil i30 Sedan N, an outstanding addition to the N brand line-up that offers pulse-pounding performance. Stay tuned for the digital world premiere.”
Its race car look can be seen in the bright red N dedicated side sills that not only help boost performance by better channelling airflow, but also create the effect of a lowered chassis.
Complementing the overall exterior styling is a distinctive N-exclusive rear spoiler that counteracts lift by preventing airflow from tumbling over the rear edge, which increases driving stability at high speeds.
Additionally, the bold black trim beneath the rear bumper and its dual single exhaust creates a different look from the standard model, further underlining its sporty credentials. Hyundai will reveal more details in the coming weeks.
