Hyundai's all-new hot hatch, i30 N is named 'Life and Seoul of the Party' at 2018 GQ Car Awards
Hyundai's i30 N, on sale now, has received the 'Life and Seoul of the Party' award at the GQ Car Awards Event. The award was presented to Hyundai by brand ambassador, Jake Humphrey.
The i30 N is Hyundai's first performance model under the Hyundai N sub brand, engineered by Hyundai's dedicated High Performance Vehicle Division, led by Albert Biermann.
Tony Whitehorn, President and CEO of Hyundai Motor UK, said: "The i30 N might be Hyundai's first hot hatch but it has been developed from the ground up to become a serious contender in what is a highly-competitive segment.
"It really is the 'life and Seoul of the party' - it's fun, has lots of tricks up its sleeves with its cornering talents and playful handling, and it certainly won't fail to get noticed with the noise it delivers from its exhaust. But even when the party is over, it is a car that's very easy to live with on a daily basis."
The i30 N is available in the UK now and is priced from £24,995. It is available in two specifications, i30 N and i30 N Performance. Both models are available with an extensive list of performance technologies as standard including electronically controlled suspension, torque vectoring, launch control and rev-matching.
British GQ said: "This ferociously fun five-door rocket ship has been developed on the Namyang proving ground and the Nurburgring Nordschleife and, as a result, is giving the Focus RS, the Golf GTI and the Honda Civi Type-R a serious run for their money."
