DesignThe elegant yet purposeful i30 N possesses a low-slung ride height, expansive wheel arches and impressively proportioned front air intakes, each giving clues to the car’s performance potential. At the rear, split twin exhausts emit the vehicle’s throaty four-cylinder growl. This hot hatch rides on N-specific 18-inch gloss-black alloy wheels too, which are each fitted with distinctive red brake calipers.The car boasts full-LED head and tail lamps – and a triangular brake light, which is seated within a polished-black rear roof spoiler.
