Hyundai is shaking up the hot hatch segment with the introduction of its performance-tuned i30.
VW has the Golf GTI, Ford has the Focus ST, Renault has the Megane RS - Hyundai finally has a competitor to ruffle some feathers and take its place alongside the hot-hatch big guns.
The i30 N is all about aggression and backs it up with performance as well. Its 2.0 litre turbocharged engine kicks out an impressive 202kW with a capped top speed of 250km/h.
Mixing it with the big guns
Whether you're looking at its factory LED lights in the front or the twin exhaust sticking out at the rear, you can tell its no ordinary hatchback.
According to Hyundai SA, the I30 N is still being considered for local production and no time-frame has been given or confirmed at this point.
