After so many pictures of many different i30 models, we finally get to see the production vehicle of the new i30 N Performance model made with the help of Albert Biermann.
The powertrain choosen for this model will be the 2.0 Turbo model with power output of 240-260 hp, having the option of two versions, the standard and performance package.
Some of the changes you can expect compare to the regular i30, will be higher horsepower, more aggressive body kit, more precise and faster gearshift, stiffer engine and transmission mounts, more sensitive and precise mechanical power steering wheel, ABS tuned along with the high Performance tires, modified suspension (independent rear suspension we hope), new front axle knuckle for sharper turn-in plus bigger brakes. It’s a big list of goodies for this new i30 and it’s expected.
As we heard the latest video released by Hyundai and now confirmed by our spy photographer, this i30 N will have a very mean exhaust tone and this time it’s not reproduce by the radio.
The i30 is set for a debut the end of 2017. Let us know your thoughts
