Well, it’s the new Hyundai i30 N and Amelia reviews this deliciously sporty offering. This small hot hatch with a throaty engine is Hyundai’s competitor to rival the Golf GTI, Honda Civic Type R and the Renault Megane RS.

The i30 N is a serious performance competitor to the current rivals and that’s partly because Hyundai’s N division is now headed by Albert Biermann, former BMW M exec and this i30 on steroids is his pride and joy.

We are looking forward to Hyundai releasing an N edition to more of its models.
