Hyundai i30 N performance in the AUTO BILD long-term test

Long live the sport! At the beginning of October, the AUTO BILD long-term test fleet became a whole lot more athletic. Since then we have been accompanied by a Hyundai i30 N Performance. The funky Korean won the heart of the Hot Hatch fan base straight away, and now he can woo us for approval for the next 100,000 kilometers. Whereby he runs into open doors from my point of view.

I’ve been allowed to reel off a few laps on the Nordschleife with the speedster and had fun like never before. Gearshift, chassis, sound: awesome! So I was all the more curious about the everyday manners of our hand-switched i30 N. To get to the point: Everyday life works great as long as you keep your hands off the sport or track mode. Then the flap exhaust gasps and spits obscenely, which brings disapproving looks in the city. Above all, however, the dampers are already so tight in sport mode that even the toughest will quickly switch back to normal mode.

The two-liter turbo in the performance model produces 280 hp and 392 Nm.

Lo and behold, the chassis is really forgiving, the exhaust is pleasantly restrained. Most of the time anyway, because strangely enough, the flaps also open here when the car is started up. There is nothing wrong with the recommended sports seats (1400 euros). They not only support, but are also comfortable. Another plus point: the fast-reacting infotainment system including navigation system and online connection (1200 euros).

The sports seats don’t just look like that, they really hold you tight. Our pictures do not show the endurance test vehicle, but an identical model.
