Hyundai's upcoming i30 N Fastback facelift has been snapped during testing, wearing the same aggressive face we've seen popping up on regular i30 prototypes.

Although it's heavily camouflaged, we can make out a few details about the updated i30. For one, it appears the car will get a set of aggressive headlamps and a more angular grille than the current model.

It's well hidden here, but previous spy photos suggest the car will bid farewell Hyundai's current 'cascading' snout.

Expect to see more aggressive air intakes on the front bumper, too, while the rear diffuser and exhaust should be tweaked as well. Although it's tough to tell, we'd suggest the new i30 Fastback N will get revised graphics in the tail-lights.

Although there's no sense of whether they're production-ready, the wheels and low-profile tyres of this particular car look more aggressive than those of the current model.

Inside, the new i30 is expected to feature a 10.25-inch infotainment screen atop the dashboard, while an expanded range of semi-autonomous safety assists are likely to feature on the updated range. Whether they'll feature on the N remains to be seen.

Along with the updated exterior, the new i30 N is expected to finally offer a dual-clutch transmission. Originally slated to arrive late this year, the updated arrival time is now late in 2020.

Currently, the car is only offered with a low-volume (but enthusiast-pleasing) manual.
