New Hyundai Concept Previews i30 hot Hatchback

HYUNDAI WILL REVEAL a concept version of its upcoming i30 hot hatch at the Paris show this week. In the run-up to the event, the concept, called RN30, has been previewed in a single official image that shows off the car’s bulging arches and large-diameter wheels. The production version of the RN30 will use a 2.0-litre turbo engine with an expected 260bhp on offer. Its rivals will include the Volkswagen Golf GTI, Renault Megane RS and Ford Focus ST.carwow-hyundai-rn30-headlight

Like the rest of the new i30 range, the front-wheel-drive performance model will be available in five-door guise only. The regular car will start at about £15.500, but the range-topping N model is likely to add around £10,000 to that figure.

As well as its influence on the production model, the RN30 reaffirms Hyundai’s claims that its hot N-badged models will look very different from its regular cars. The i30N will be the first of several hot models that. Hyundai says, are being launched in a bid to establish more of an emotional link with its customers.
