Hyundai i30 N: DCT option delayed until late 2020

Hyundai Australia will go without an automatic option for its i30 N hot hatch for at least another 12 months, with the company's local boss indicating the promised dual-clutch auto won't be here until late in 2020. Speaking at the local launch for the all-new Venue crossover, Hyundai Australia's CEO, J.W. Lee, said the DCT-equipped i30 N has been pushed back until next year. "We're getting the DCT. [It will be here] late 2020," he said.

Hyundai Ute due in 2022 or 2023 with Australian input

The lack of a ute is seen as the only thing holding the Korean manufacturer back from overtaking Japan's Mazda. Hyundai Australia has been calling for a ute since 2015 – and pick-ups have been our top selling vehicles for the past three years in a row – but it seems the company may finally get its wish.
