Korean auto giant Hyundai is currently carrying out winter testing of the i30 N which is due to be launched across Europe in the second half of 2017.
The i30 N will be the third member of the i30 family, following the launch of the five-door version in January and the i30 wagon at the Geneva Motor Show in March. Hyundai’s first N model will also be the brand’s first ever performance-focussed model.
During the recent winter testing in Sweden, Thierry Neuville, WRC Championship driver of Hyundai Motorsport, tested the car on a frozen lake to get a feel for it. Hyundai is undergoing winter testing in Arjeplog, Sweden to develop and tune the car’s dynamic systems. The Electronic Stability Control, the Limited Slip Differential, the steering, shock absorbers, suspension and tyres are all being tested under extreme weather conditions.
