The i30N is powered by a 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbo-petrol engine mated to a 6-speed manual gearbox. It produces 250hp of power and 353Nm of peak torque.
With the new i30, Hyundai will launch an N Line version of its popular i30 Wagon, meaning the company’s sporty trim level will be available on all i30 body types for the first time.
There is no word on whether Hyundai will eventually bring the 130 to India or not. However, the older generation i30 was on display at the Hyundai Motor pavilion at the Auto Expo 2020. In case Hyundai decides to introduce the i30 in India, it is unlikely to have any direct competition due to the segment being relatively unexplored in the country.
