Hyundai’s 300-Horsepower i30 Promises to Deliver

Preparing to be introduced at the Frankfurt Auto Show, Hyundai’s 300-horsepower i30 hot-hatch is sure to earn the automaker that piece of the segment it’s been looking for. Although Hyundai introduced the Veloster in 2012, it wasn’t quite powerful enough to win over serious hot-hatch enthusiasts. Then, in 2013, Hyundai unveiled the more powerful Veloster Turbo, and now, the improved i30 – which promises to be even better.

Hyundai’s new N performance arm is delivering the 300-horsepower i30, which, according to reports, will be powered by the turbocharged 2.0-liter from the RM15 concept. The i30 is built on the same platform as the Elantra, and with this engine, is capable of cranking out an impressive 295 pound-feet of torque.

Reports suggest that the i30 will first be aimed at France, the U.K., and Germany, and if well-received in Europe, the U.S. could see an N-tuned version of the Elantra and other models. Here at Glenbrook Hyundai, we’ll be (not-so) patiently waiting to hear more when the Frankfurt Auto Show kicks off on September 17th. Until then, we invite you to stop by Glenbrook Hyundai and test drive the 2015 Veloster, and look for the limited edition Veloster Rally to be available soon! Sign up for updates here.
