Company Hyundai will release a new modification of the charged hatchback i30 N, which will be equipped with a robotic gearbox with two clutches. This version will appear in late 2019. This is reported by the publication CarAdvice.

The first hot-hatch Hyundai debuted in July 2017. The model is equipped with a two-liter turbo engine, which, depending on the modification, produces either 250 or 275 horsepower. Now the engine is combined only with a six-speed manual gearbox. From the place to 100 km/h i30 N accelerates in 6.2 seconds. The maximum speed of the model is 250 kilometers per hour.

The Hyundai i30 N includes active suspension, a limited-slip differential with electronic controls, an active exhaust system, a quick start function, an automatic overdrive and a fully disengaged dynamic stabilization system.

In the summer of 2017, the head of the Hyundai N unit, Albert Birman, who previously led the BMW M, said that in the future, the charged models of the Korean automaker will be equipped with the all-wheel drive system. The company has already tested prototypes of such cars.
