2019 Hyundai i30 Fastback N revealed

The Hyundai i30 Fastback N has been revealed ahead of its world premiere at the Paris motor show next week. It’s the second model from the company’s N Performance Division, following in the wheel tracks of the hot-selling hatch model already on sale. The good news for Aussie punters who like the swoopier coupe-like styling is that it’s on track to arrive locally by March 2019.

Hyundai Australia is still considering whether it should bring one or two models of its i30 N hot hatch as it gears up for the launch of its very first serious performance car in the first quarter of next year.

The two-tier approach is similar to what its main target, Volkswagen, offers with the Golf GTi and its performance pack.

Hyundai test centre to open at Nurburgring

Hyundai is just months away from opening its new state-of-the-art vehicle test centre at Germany’s Nurburgring. The $7.3 million facility is set for completion by August this year and will be used to lift Hyundai’s vehicle development and evaluation program to benchmark levels. Without a proper test facility on location at the Nurburgring, Hyundai was forced to rent less secure garage space – leaving the Korean maker’s new products exposed during testing to legions of spy photographers.
