Rule the road | A state by state guide for P-Platers getting their start on the road
Here at Hyundai, we’re going to break down everything you need to know as a newbie on the road; state, by state.
Every new chapter has a beginning. This is ours. The i30 N is Hyundai’s first true high-performance car, developed to debut the N division and redefine how the world views our vehicles.
Recently the game-changing i30 N hot hatch was crowned best Sports Car Under $50,000 in the 2018 Australia’s Best Cars (ABC) awards, taking Hyundai’s total tally to 23 ABC awards.
The i30 N secured the coveted title against established hard-hitting high-performance players, in the nation’s largest independent new-car assessment and awards programme, after a gruelling week-long test adjudicated by representatives from Australia’s peak motoring organisations.
The i30 N won the ABC judges’ votes with its accessible high-performance, hugely capable and rewarding handling, all-rounder practicality and value for money, against tough competition from shortlisted category rivals.
Australia's Best Cars judges commented: “With a starting price of $39,990 there are few in the category that can match the i30 N price-wise and the value-for-money equation is enhanced with a good level of standard features and high build quality. Impressive as it is, you don’t win a sports category with those attributes alone and it’s the i30 N’s on-road scores that really matter and where it excels.”
Here’s a sample of what leading car reviewers have been saying about the Hyundai i30 N…
“The i30 N is uniquely Hyundai in that it offers not only its own personality, but also more of almost everything when directly compared to its rivals.” – Motoring.com.au
“The i30 N is the result of a holistic approach to crafting a performance car, rather than just turning up the wick on an existing grocery-getter’s mechanicals. Sure, it’s i30 sheetmetal that you’re looking at, but there’s so much that’s been changed underneath the skin that the i30 N may as well belong to a different genus altogether.” – Wheels Magazine
“The result is not one punch, but a flurry of body blows bringing strong power, plenty of equipment, a class-leading warranty and sharper price than key opponents. It’s much more than good.” – DriveLearn More
The N Performance community recently organised an Official i30 N technical presentation with Q&A in both Sydney (July 8) and Melbourne (July 22).
These exclusive events offered a unique opportunity to discuss the i30 N, meet with Geoff Fear – Hyundai’s official N tech from N Performance.AU, and chat with Brendan Reeves – i30 N independent test driver, driver instructor and rally driver, as well as meet other i30 N owners.
