  • New Hyundai i30 N
  • N-Drive Limited Edition revealed
  • Only 800 will be built
  • 75 coming to the UK
  • Set to cost more than standard car
  • On sale soon

The Hyundai i30 N is one of the best bang-for-your-bucks hot hatches on sale and the new N-Drive Limited Edition adds a few appealing upgrades to make it feel more special than ever.

If you fancy getting your hands on one of these excellent alternatives to the Volkswagen Golf GTI and Honda Civic Type R, you’d better move quickly. Only 800 will be made and just 75 will come to the UK.

New Hyundai i30 N prices and specs

The latest Hyundai i30 N comes as standard with a 280hp 2.0-litre four-cylinder engine and a six-speed manual gearbox driving the front wheels only. It costs from £34,095.

Hand over an extra £1,975 and you can ditch the manual gearbox and get an eight-speed automatic instead. This model is slightly quicker – it’ll sprint from 0-60mph in 5.4 seconds compared with the manual’s 5.9-second time.

Hyundai hasn’t confirmed how much the new i30 N Limited Edition will cost, but considering its exclusivity (only 75 will be sold in the UK) you can expect it to nudge closer to the £40,000 mark. That’s as much as a top-spec Honda Civic Type R.

New Hyundai i30 N what’s new?

The big news for the new 2022 Hyundai i30 N is a box-fresh Limited Edition model. You’ll be able to spot this car easily because it comes in just two colours: black and white.

It also comes with 19-inch alloy wheels in an exclusive dark bronze finish and some new red and gold stickers (because it’s impossible to have too many stickers on a hot hatch – apparently.)

Extra car-geek points go to anyone who spots the new black Hyundai logos on this Limited Edition feature the coordinates of the firm’s test facility at Germany’s famous Nurburgring race circuit.

Inside, you get extra red stitching, plenty of suede-like Alcantara trim and a numbered plaque with your car’s individual production number out of 800. The driving-mode switches on the steering wheel are now red instead of finished in the standard car’s sky-blue.
