Hyundai Reveals First Ever Hot Hatch: Meet The 271bhp i30 N

It has also not revealed where it will be positioned among its competitors in terms of price, but Hyundai has indicated it is aiming to at least match the basic Golf GTI's $41,490 (plus on-roads) sticker for the fully-loaded i30 N Performance Pack with the standard model coming in at around $37,500 if it decides to offer both. The shape tapers at the rear and the wheel arches are widened to further pronounce the i30 Fastback's profile. It comes with a 247bhp 2.0-litre, four-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine, although if you specify the Performance Package, power grows to 271bhp. There's even a launch control function. "The N logo symbolises a chicane, the ultimate part of the track where the i30 N achieves maximum traction, precision and feeling", Hyundai says.

The i30 N will be offered with two specs.

The other two tenets Hyundai based the vehicle on are the idea of an "everyday sports car", which is fairly self-explanatory, and to ensure it has "race track capability".

Instead, the company is focusing on driver enjoyment first and foremost. Power goes to the front wheels through a six-speed manual gearbox. Kerb weight is listed at 1400kg for the 184kW i30 N, with the Performance Package model tipping the scales at 1429kg.

The emphasised wheelarches, unique side sills, additional air vents and twin exhaust pipes all add visual drama and are complemented by red brake callipers and a gloss-black finish for the wing mirrors and rear spoiler; the latter features a triangular central brake light.

As a departure from the standard or SR-spec i30, 19-inch wheels support at auto that's a subtle 8mm lower, with dual exhausts, a black spoiler, a diffuser and, of course, N badges to distinguish it.

Drivers can choose between five different modes via buttons on the steering wheel - Eco, Normal Sport, N and N Custom - which adjust the engine note, accelerator response, steering and other attributes depending on the conditions. Sitting alongside the standard 5-door hatch in the i30 range the new Fastback will be launched at the beginning of 2018, sharing the hatch's chassis and drivetrain, but in a sleek new body.

Inside, a blue-stitched N sports steering wheel, N badging, N-themed instrument cluster and sports seats with lumbar support - trimmed in either suede/leather or cloth - differentiate the hot hatch from its donor auto.

Mechanically, the Performance Package is the more intriguing proposition, though.

In fact, it's a five-door coupe, according to Hyundai Europe's Chief Operating Officer, Thomas A. Schmid, who claims: "The i30 Fastback is the first elegant five-door coupe to enter the compact segment, underlining our commitment to innovation and customer choice".
