2018 Hyundai i30 N – end of year wrap-up review

What happens when you get the same guy behind Volkswagen’s Golf Gti program to shift to a Korean manufacturer? You get the i30 N. It’s exactly the sort of car you would expect from someone let loose to produce a more feral drive than allowed by VW. The 130 N crackles, roars, barks and sounds like a hooligan.

Performance is likewise rather impressive, with a slick six-speed manual gearbox and 202kW punching the car towards the horizon whenever you feel like it. You won’t find much in the way of wings and scoops on the outside, but that means it will appeal to the sort of buyer that wants something quick, but likes to fly under the radar.
