Does the Hyundai i30 N still pass for an under-the-radar hot hatch? Evidence suggests yes as former BMW M head Albert Biermann has put a competent hot-hatch compact on wheels.

The discrete i30 N with 250 hp (186 kW) hasn't been available in Germany since April 2019. Only the performance model with 275 hp (205 kW) and 260 lb-ft (353 Nm) of torque is still available. Still quite new is the somewhat more sharply tuned i30 N Project C.

Fans of the i30 N are still waiting for a dual-clutch transmission. Perhaps it will come with the i30 facelift. The fastest i30 starts at €33,100.
