Hyundai has revealed pricing and specifications for the i30 N, its first high-performance car.
The i30 N will be offered in a single 202kW ‘Performance’ model (equivalent to i30 N ‘Performance Package’ vehicles sold globally) with prices starting at $39,990 MLP. It is believed that customers will be able to choose their desired level of luxury via two available option packs.
The i30 N marks a new era for Hyundai Motor – it is the first model to launch under the exciting N performance line and is a car built to deliver exhilarating driving pleasure for everyone. Hyundai Motor Company Australia CEO Mr. JW Lee said the team we’re very confident in how the i30 N will perform.
“We’ve set the MLP at $39,990 to ensure there are no excuses! We encourage every genuine enthusiast in the hot hatch market to drive it and make their mind up based on the product’s merits.
“Given the way i30 N looks, sounds and drives, we believe it will make a compelling case against its strongest competitors, regardless of price.”
The new model is already available for purchase, with the first 300 deliveries targeted for a mid-April arrival.
“The Hyundai i30 N has been developed for no other purpose than to deliver maximum driving fun to our customers in an accessible high-performance package,” said Albert Biermann, Executive Vice President Performance Development and High Performance Vehicle Division.
“With the high-performance N models we will enhance our brand’s appeal with emotional products that cater to the needs of people who love to have a smile on their face when they drive their car on a winding road and listen to the sound of the engine. That’s why we measure high-performance in BPM, heart beats per minute instead of only RPM.”
