- Hyundai i30 N high-performance hatchback claims another major award
- i30 N brings impressive performance, intent and usability to the segment
- Autocar names Hyundai i30 N as a car that sets new standards in the industry
Such has been its impact, that the i30 N is a performance car Autocar now rates more highly than rivals from established marques. Such impressive performance, intent, and usability for a relatively modest outlay – and at the first time of asking – is why the i30 N secures ‘game-changer’ status. It’s a gutsy, engaging and likeable first attempt at a full-fat hot hatch.
It is an honour to be labelled a ‘game changer’ by such a pillar of the motoring world as Autocar. Albert Biermann, our High Performance chief, has really shown what can be done with this car, and as Hyundai’s first hot hatchback it is gratifying to see it placed ahead of more established rivals.
The Autocar ‘Game Changer’ awards consider cars that have set new standards or defied convention by turning the established order on its head.
