The car with a very long name is actually a traditional compact C-Class hatchback. It is “traditional”, but not “ordinary”. After all, we are talking about a charged hot hatchback Hyundai i30 N with a superpowerful 2-liter engine. Also presented in the recently released limited edition Drive-N Limited Edition.
The version is really “limited”: only 800 such cars have to be produced: 545 – for the whole Europe, 75 – for the United Kingdom, 180 – for Australia. The originality of each car is evidenced by a nameplate with the serial number in the cabin and remarkable details that distinguish the hot hatch from the outside: 19-inch wheels, pads and body stickers, and even a special color – Serenity White Pearl (although black will also be an option).
In general, according to the developers of Hyundai, the limited version of the i30 N Drive-N Limited Edition was being developed under the slogan “as if N-thusiasts improved their car.” Hence the variety of decor – overlays and stickers, these wheel discs.
However, there were technical developments. For example, the 2-liter T-GDi engine offers 280 hp and 392 Nm of torque. And as a bonus, there is an NGS (N Grin Shift) button on the steering wheel, which can add +10 “horses” for 20 seconds.
And in general, the interior is decorated in the right style: sports seats, numerous N-logos, metal pedals. Plus the classic black and red finishing – on the seats, steering wheel, and even the levers of the 8-speed automatic transmission with dual clutch.
Does this “hot hatch” Hyundai i30 N Drive-N Limited Edition look like a car from another life? Now – yes. However, we hope that peace will soon prevail in Ukraine and we will choose such cars not only in the news, but also in car dealerships.
