At Fleet Auto News we love hot hatches so we’re excited that Hyundai has announced pricing and specifications for the i30 N, its first high-performance car which will be on the novated lease shopping list.
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. 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.
The car is now on sale, with first deliveries targeted for mid-April. To secure one of the first 300 cars arriving in April, customers should contact their local Hyundai dealer or fill out the online registration form.
“We’re confident in the i30 N,” said HMCA Chief Executive Officer, Mr. JW Lee. “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 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.”
