    Hyundai i30 N hot hatch boasts bespoke Pirelli tyres

    Hyundai has revealed that it went to Pirelli to get the tyre manufacturer to engineer a “tailor-made” version of its P Zero rubber for the new i30 N hot hatch.

    The Korean automaker says the new tyre – a “unique variant” of Pirelli’s P Zero UHP 235/35 R19 rubber – has been “specially geared to the vehicle’s dynamic characteristics”.

    Marked with “HN” on the sidewall to denote its original equipment fitment to the i30 N, the tyre is produced at Pirelli’s plant in Settimo Torinese, Italy.

    The i30 N, of course, is the first high-performance model unveiled under the new Hyundai N banner. Its 2,0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder engine (complete with an overboost function) delivers 202 kW and 353 N.m in the case of the Performance Package model to the front wheels via a six-speed manual gearbox.

    The standard i30 N, meanwhile, makes 184 kW and the same peak torque figure. Both models top out at 250 km/h, with the standard derivative accelerating to 100 km/h in a claimed 6,4 seconds and the 202 kW version taking a claimed 6,1 seconds.

    Other high-performance features include an electronic limited slip differential, electronic controlled suspension, launch control and, of course, the high-performance Pirelli tyres.

    Hyundai has revealed its new hot hatch intended to rival the Volkswagen Golf GTI, Ford Focus ST and the Renault Megane RS.

    Hyundai SA confirmed to Wheels24 that it is considering the i30 N for local introduction though it could be years before we see it on our shores.

    Here are seven things you should know about Hyundai's new i30N hot hatch:

    1. The i30 N marks a new era for Hyundai as it introduces its first high-performance model under the 'N' line-up.

    2. The N-brand was created in Namyang and honed at the Nürburgring. The ‘N’ symbolises a track chicane...

    3. The 2.0-litre four-cylinder T-GDI turbo engine delivers up to 202kW/353Nm.

    4. High-performance features: Electronic Limited Slip Differential, Electronic Controlled Suspension, Rev Matching, Launch Control, high-performance tyres, lap timer and more.

    5. Five different drive modes, including the N and N Custom modes, offer a variety of different configurations from comfort-oriented daily commuting to race track performance
    Emotional sound thanks to a variable exhaust valve system

    6. The i30 N is characterised by aggressive front and rear bumpers with larger air intakes and red character line, aerodynamic rear spoiler with triangular brake light, dual muffler exhaust, 18- and 19-inch wheels, sport seats, Performance Blue exterior colour inspired by Hyundai Motorsport

    7. The i30 N will be produced at Hyundai Motor Manufacturing Czech in Nosovice. The facility opened in 2008 and started production of the first generation i30 the same year.

    Could be years before we see it on our shores??? then who would be stupid enough to buy it? because by then the likes of Golf GTi and others would of moved on to be much faster and more dynamic then this poor little i30 N. If the competition is laughing at you now, imagine how they will scoff at you then. No Thanks Hyundai, if you can't bring this car in by early 2018 and you want to take your own sweet time then don't be surprised if you can't sell those cars.

    Mmm try replacing on of those tyres. It'll probably cost R5000.00 per tire and stock shortages etc etc.
    I had that with my Hemi 300c and eventually put on a different size Hankook.

    At the risk of repeating myself the overwhelming consensus is that Hyundai/Sunday knocked their first hot hatch out of the park.

    Every single respected YT review & publication I've viewed/read were overall highly impressed how Hyundai basically came out of nowhere & brought this to market. In countries like the UK it's priced relatively competitive as well.

    Hyundai SA needs to jack up & actually commit to bringing this N model to ZA & *not* be greedy with the pricing. Personally within a ~R10k ballpark of Mk7.5 GTI is reasonable all things considered.

    Being Hyundai's first attempt reckon that it will give the GTi brigade a good run for their money but ultimately not be as reliable as the established hot hatch brands out threre...

    So what happens when the 19" bespoke P Zero tyres need replacing exactly?

    You either buy the same size by your favourite tyre manufacturer or buy the same P Zero ones that the car comes with from the factory, if you so choose.

    They seem pretty pricey though...https://www.twt.co.za/235-35r19

    Exactly. At 6k per tyre, I'd rather buy a motorbike, or a small village in eastern Mongolia.

    Judge I30 N Hot Hatch On Its Merits, Urges Hyundai

    Hyundai has urged enthusiasts to judge the new i30 N on its merits, adding that it is aware it has “no heritage in the hot hatch segment”.

    Hyundai Australia’s public relations manager, Bill Thomas, made the comments to CarAdvice.

    “We are aware that we have no heritage in the hot hatch segment, so we are also aware that we must enter the game at the highest level possible and let the customers decide,” Thomas told the Australian publication.

    “Some may never accept that a high-performance hatch with a Hyundai badge can be best in class or even close to it, no matter how many independent comparison tests they read in which the N car has done exceptionally well or beaten its more fancied opposition.

    “We aren’t interested in appealing to those people. We want to attract true car enthusiasts who can understand and appreciate a car on its merits. They will judge whether the i30 N is good enough, and they may decide to own one. We truly hope they won’t be disappointed with that choice,” Thomas added.

    The five-door hot hatch is positioned to do battle against the likes of the Volkswagen Golf GTI, and is powered by a 2,0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder engine delivering 184 kW (in the standard model) or 202 kW (in the Performance Package derivative) to the front wheels via a six-speed manual gearbox.

    While the new i30 N has not been officially confirmed for South Africa, the Korean brand’s distributor earlier told CARmag.co.za that it was compiling a business case for the i30 N, with being able to import it at the right price at the top of the list.
