  • i30 Sedan N combines the practicality of an everyday car with the exciting sportiness of a high-performance racecar

Hyundai Motor Company today revealed the first glimpse of i30 Sedan N (sold as Avante N and Elantra N overseas), the latest addition to its high-performance N range. This is Hyundai Motors’ sixth N brand model, following the unveiling of KONA N in April this year.

i30 Sedan N is the high-performance variant of the all-new i30 Sedan model launched in 2020, distinguishable by its ‘Parametric Dynamics’ design theme that imparts a look of sophisticated sportiness. Hyundai N designers took cues from the curves and lines of a sculpture to give the car a powerful and athletic stance.

“i30 Sedan N is a high-performance sedan that reveals the sportier side of our exceptional all-new i30 Sedan through exciting N brand enhancements,” said Till Wartenberg, Vice President of N brand Management & Motorsport sub-division at Hyundai Motor Company.

“We designed it to be a race-proven sportscar with dynamic driving capabilities and style that performance enthusiasts love. I can’t wait to unveil i30 Sedan N, an outstanding addition to the N brand lineup that offers pulse-pounding performance. Stay tuned for the digital world premiere.”


i30 Sedan N’s racecar look can be seen in the bright red N dedicated side sills that not only help boost performance by better channeling airflow, but also create the effect of a lowered chassis. Complementing the overall exterior styling is a distinctive N-exclusive rear spoiler that counteracts lift by preventing airflow from tumbling over the rear edge, which increases driving stability at high speeds. Additionally, the bold black trim beneath the rear bumper and its dual single exhaust creates a different look from the standard model, further underlining the i30 Sedan N’s sporty credentials.

Hyundai Motor will reveal more details about i30 Sedan N in the coming weeks.
