Hyundai UK has officially announced the pricing and specification of the i30 N, which will go on sale in the UK on January 4. The Golf GTI-rival is priced from £24,995 (Rs 21.95 lakhs) on-road and comes with a 2-litre turbocharged engine.

The i30 N is Hyundai’s first performance model under the N sub brand. The N moniker stands for both Namyang – Hyundai’s global R&D Centre in Korea where i30 N was born - and for the Nurburgring, home to Hyundai’s European test centre where the car was further developed and tested.

The i30 N is powered by a 2-litre turbocharged engine available with the two power outputs: the Standard Package engine delivers 250bhp whereas the Performance Package engine's maximum power is boosted to 275bhp. Both outputs deliver a maximum torque of 353Nm and allow the car to hit a top speed of 250 kmph. The 250bhp version accelerates to 100 kmph in 6.4 seconds while the 275bhp lessens the time taken to just 6.1 seconds. The car is available with front-wheel drive and a six-speed manual transmission.

The i30 N even has launch control function which controls engine torque when starting from standstill to avoid excessive wheel spin and slingshot acceleration. Launch control can be effectively used in the N drive mode with ESP switched off.

The i30 N will compete against cars like the Honda Civic Type-R and the Volkswagen Golf GTI. It will be produced at Hyundai’s Czech Republic facility in Nosovic with deliveries expected to begin early next year.
