The widely-acclaimed i30 N hot hatch and liftback models will be joined by a sedan body, Hyundai has confirmed.
UPDATE, November 11, 2020: Following the earlier release of an official preview video (and this less official one), a set of revealing new 2021 Hyundai i30 Sedan N photos have been handed down.
We’ve added the photos here, but this story is otherwise unchanged. You can still find the official teaser clip at the bottom of this story.
September 29, 2020: The 2021 Hyundai i30 Sedan N (or i30 N Sedan as most are likely to call it) has been teased in a video released by the Korean car maker.
The video, which shows-off Hyundai’s i30 N Sedan TCR racing car – known as the Elantra N TCR overseas – gives a sneak peak at the road-going variant in the final few seconds.
The camouflaged i30 N Sedan is the first official confirmation of the performance sedan from Hyundai, despite months of industry speculation. Recently it was announced the i30 Sedan N-Line would be offered locally.
It’s expected the sedan will get the same 2.0-litre turbo four-cylinder engine found in the updated i30 N hatch and i30 Fastback N, producing 205kW and 392Nm. Transmission options will likely be a choice between a six-speed manual and a new eight-speed dual-clutch automatic.
The i30 N Sedan features Hyundai’s latest design language, but offers a more striking appearance than its i30 hatch sibling thanks to its ‘pennon flank’ side sheet-metal and jewel-patterned grille.
Watch the video to the end and let us know what you think about the Hyundai i30 N Sedan in the comments.
