Production capped at 800 units for the whole world.
Hyundai is giving the i30 N a makeover with a special edition that includes a variety of cosmetic changes. The new Drive-N Limited Edition comes with an individually numbered plaque to indicate that it’s not just another edition of the sporty hatchback. It’s available with either a conventional six-speed manual or an eight-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. The number of automobiles produced will be limited to 800, with 620 going to Europe.
The Hyundai i30 N is getting a facelift with a special edition that incorporates a number of visual improvements. The new Drive-N Limited Edition features an individually numbered plaque that distinguishes it from other versions of the sporty hatchback. It comes with a six-speed manual transmission or an eight-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. The total number of cars produced will be limited to 800, with 620 of them travelling to Europe.
The distinctive logos on the front fenders, which provide GPS coordinates of the Hyundai Motor Europe Test Center at the Nürburgring in Germany, complete the exterior alterations. Since 2011, it’s been where all high-performance cars have been created and tested. A turbocharged 2.0-liter gasoline engine with 276 horsepower and 392 Newton-meters (289 pound-feet) of torque provides the performance.
More red can be seen on the body-hugging front seats, which have lighted “N” insignia that remind us of a particular Bavarian automaker. Hyundai even went to the trouble of customising the floor mats with red piping and special wording to distinguish the Drive-N Limited Edition. It has a N Grin Shift (NGS) button, which boosts power by 10 hp for 20 seconds, just like the normal i30 N. The vehicle will be available as a fully loaded variant with a glass roof and a rear rigidity bar.
