Simone takes an early look at the new Hyundai i30 N. The 2017 re-invented Hyundai i30 was already a huge hit and this new 2018 version of the Hyundai i30 in its hot hatch guise should also be very popular.

Cool looks and competitor-slashing power rating and the i30N takes Hyundai to a whole new level.
