Ahead of its official unveiling on Thursday, Hyundai has released the teaser images of the RN30 concept car. The concept reportedly previews the N performance version of the new i30 hatchback. Much like its N-badged models, this new concept will also look different from its regular models.

Based on what can be seen, the Hyundai RN30 concept will sport LED-ringed foglamps on the aggressively designed bumper, headlamps with quad-unit LED arrangement and a bonnet vent for better engine cooling. The vehicle is designed and developed at Hyundai Motor Europe Technical Centre, Hyundai’s High Performance Vehicle Division and Hyundai Motorsport is just a part of the design study that might find its way into the company’s i30N performance car which is likely to launch next year.

The upcoming i30N is expected to be powered by a 2.0-litre engine which might generate about 260bhp of power. The vehicle will be offered as a five-door version only and the vehicle will compete against the likes of Volkswagen Golf GTI, Ford Focus ST and Peugeot 308 GTi. For complete control, the electronically controlled mechanical limited slip differential will control wheelspin and offer better traction in corners. More details about the vehicle will be known in the coming months.
