Hyundai is in the final stages of development of the next model to join its range of high-performance cars wearing the N logo. The model in question is the i30 Fastback N.
Prototype testing is now well under way, including assessments on a variety of road surfaces around Europe. Among the testing locations is the Nordschleife circuit at the Nurburgring in Germany, where Hyundai has its own technical centre. The track and the public roads around the region are among those used to evaluate performance and durability, helping to prepare what will be the third N model, after the five-door i30 N and the Veloster N.
Launched earlier this year, the i30 Fastback is a unique car as it’s the only five-door coupe in its segment. The new N version will take the i30 Fastback’s performance quotient to another level. More information on this new model will be announced later this year, closer to the time of its launch.
