This is the new Hyundai i 30 N Fastback , in prototype form. Autocar drove the i 30 N Fastback for a single flying lap of the Nurburgring Nordschleife. The Hyundai i 30 Fastback N is still being developed ahead of its launch. The Hyundai i 30 N Fastback is based on the i 30 N hot hatch, but with

Hyundai i30 N 2020 UK review

  Hyundai i30 N 2020 UK review Suspension tweaks aim to make the Hyundai hot hatch a more usable daily driver. Do they succeed?That said, it doesn’t feel quite as busy or unforgiving over smaller ruts and bumps as a Cup-chassis-equipped Renault Mégane RS might. But equally, I’m not entirely sure that it exhibits quite the same level of willingness as its French rival to then breathe with the undulations underfoot when you up the pace and get a bit more energy flowing through its dampers. There’s a level of suppleness that perhaps wasn’t here previously, but even on a reasonably well-kept B-road, you find yourself wondering if even more leniency might not go amiss.

The Hyundai i 30 Fastback N was only unveiled 13 months ago and already, the South Korean car This particular prototype spied near Hyundai ’s facility at the Nurburgring is clad in thick camouflage We suspect Hyundai will tweak the engine of the facelifted i 30 N models to give it a little extra grunt.

Hyundai is also updating its i 30 N Line range. For the first time, the company's sporty-looking trim level will be available on the new Hyundai i 30 Wagon, starting in summer 2020. The dynamic, motorsport-inspired N Line trim has undergone a comprehensive design update for i 30 Hatchback and Fastback .

I enjoyed this car more some of my colleagues already. It really likes cornering and, when you turn-in, it has a genuine willingness to resist pushing-on and rotates seemingly around its middle, so it’s not all about desperate front tyre scrabble. Ford’s ST cars do the same and Renault Sport models used to, too, though alas not always so naturally now.

These revisions, tested in what’s still a prototype, leave that character unchanged, thankfully. Chiefly they bring the option of an eight-speed dual clutch transmission (DCT; previously manual only), an improved ride quality, forged wheels that save more than 14kg of unsprung mass, 15mm bigger front brake discs, minor drive assist, infotainment and seat upgrades, and an extra 5bhp, leaving the i30 N Performance a 276bhp car.

Hyundai i10 N Line 2020 UK review

  Hyundai i10 N Line 2020 UK review Gets the turbocharged engine the i10 always needed, but styling revisions, performance enhancements and a price it could do withoutThe N Line version offers only the very mildest sprinkling of extra sporting seasoning, then. It's competent and nice to rub along with, but to suggest that it grips, steers or corners in a way that smacks of a junior warm hatchback would be misleading.

Hyundai i 30 Fastback N Review 2020 by MattBrandCars. In today's review, see why the i 30 n Fastback is the MOST FUN you can have with Today we will do an in-depth review and find out if the Hyundai i 30 Fastback N is as fun to drive as it looks. New car review every sunday night

The Hyundai i 30 Fastback N is a slightly more grown-up, swoopier version of the i 30 N hatch. It’s got a bit less headroom in the back , and a bigger boot

Some of the suspension changes were designed around the arrival of the DCT and the extra 60-70kg it brings. Front camber is more than doubled and DCT versions get different tuning for the electronically-controlled dampers than the lighter six-speed manual cars.

The DCT is a good ‘box, shifting smoothly and quickly and responsively up and down gears and it’ll cruise at around 1900rpm on the motorway. There are a few different drive modes, as there are for the steering, engine response, damper tuning, exhaust and more – honestly too bewildering for me but at least there’s now a cool spider chart on the 10.25in screen to make selecting options easier.

I’d rather N’s engineers gave us fewer and picked the ones they liked best, because there’s no doubt they’re really good at dynamic tuning. I tried the DCT in the longer Fastback model, which is a little more inert than a manual hatchback we also drove. Both ride with more ease than they did, but retain fine body control.

Introducing the Hyundai i 30 N , an accessible high performance car with five individual drive modes. We've taken everything you loved about the i 30 N , refined its performance on the road and upgraded the body to an aerodynamic fastback silhouette.

The DCT remains fun, too, despite the extra weight, but the manual hatch is still the better, purer, more nimble driver’s car. I’d have one over a Honda Civic Type R. It’s lower on outright power, and probably lap speed, than Honda or Renault alternatives, but lighten up, there’s more to life.

a car parked on the side of a road: From superminis to supercars, turbocharging is now so mainstream it’s almost impossible to buy a new car that doesn’t rely on forced induction.  But rewind 20, 30 or 40 years and turbocharging was still something special. The idea of using waste exhaust gases to force-feed air and fuel to an engine to create more power seemed like alchemy, and the technology certainly helped produce some solid-gold classics.  So give yourself a boost with this collection of 26 of the greatest turbocharged classic cars – and apologies if we’ve omitted your favourite.

Mild-hybrid engines arrive as part of facelift for family hatchback. We test it in the UK for the first timeThat said, the adoption of the 48V mild-hybrid 1.0-litre engine is a definite boon, the well-integrated 16bhp starter-generator giving a little fillip of torque-fill at low speeds to give the car a bigger-hearted feel than its 998cc capacity would suggest.
