    Nth Degree Performance
    Born on the track – the blistering performance of the
    i30 N is powered by a newly developed 2.0T-GDi turbocharged engine.
    • 2.0 T-GDi (250PS)
      petrol engine

      The newly developed four-cylinder 2.0 T-GDi engine is highly responsive with a rich torque curve supported by an over boost function that temporarily increases torque by 8%. i30 N features front-wheel drive and a six-speed manual transmission.

    • 2.0 T-GDi (275PS)
      petrol engine

      N Performance models use the same 2.0 T-GDi petrol engine as i30 N (250) models but benefits from an additional 25 PS; boosting total power output to 275 PS. The torque figure remains at 353 Nm but is spread over a wider rev range to suit the demands of more track focussed driving.

    • Traction and
      stability control

      Developed in-house, the traction and stability control is like a good co-pilot, helping when
      necessary but otherwise being quiet, never disturbing your driving fun. If desired, it can
      be switched off completely.

    • Electronic Limited Slip
      Differential (E-LSD)

      High performance cornering capabilities for maximum fun. The i30 N Performance is fitted with
      an electronic limited slip differential specifically designed and engineered by Hyundai to
      tackle even the most challenging corners. It applies varying torque levels to each of the
      driven wheels, reducing wheel slip and minimising understeer in corners.

    • Active variable
      exhaust system

      The variable exhaust valve fitted to i30 N Performance lets you select different levels of
      exhaust sound – relatively restrained in Normal mode, to the crackling “after-burn” growl
      in N mode with added fuel detonations, like a rally car during fast upshifts.

    5 drive modes

    At the push of a button, you can select between five distinct drive modes to match your mood: Eco,
    Normal, Sport, N and N Custom. These modes alter the character of the i30 N by changing the operating
    parameters of engine throttle response, suspension stiffness, stability control, steering weight, and
    rev-matching intensity. On i30 N Performance the electronic limited slip differential and exhaust sound
    can also be controlled.

    Launch control

    Launch control helps to accelerate i30 N in
    the quickest time from a standstill. By regulating
    the amount of available torque sent to the front wheels,
    wheel spin is minimised.


    Hit the steering wheel button to enjoy fast, smooth
    downshifts. Rev-matching automatically blips the
    throttle on downshifts to synchronize the rotational
    speeds of the engine and transmission, optimising
    braking performance.


    Cutting-edge Advanced Driving Assistance Systems for
    more safety and peace of mind.
    • Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB)

      Operating in three stages using camera sensors, it warns the driver visually and audibly. In a second step, it controls the brakes according to the collision danger stage, and in a third stage applies maximum braking force to avoid a collision or minimise damage if a collision is unavoidable.

    • Forward Collision Warning (FCW)

      FCW uses the front camera to detect the potential for any frontal collision and alert the driver of the danger.

    • Lane Keeping Assist (LKA)

      At speeds over 37 mph the system alerts the driver about unsafe movements. In case of an unintended lane departure, it will warn the driver and can apply counter steering torque to guide the car back to a safe position.
