Namyang and Nürburgring
The i30 N was born in Namyang, Hyundai Motor’s worldwide R&D Centre in Korea, and honed at the Nürburgring, the world-famous 12.9-mile race circuit in Germany where Hyundai Motor’s European test centre is based. N stands for those two locations and symbolises a chicane, the essence of Hyundai’s high-performance car development. Strongly inspired by motorsport, the N has been developed using the experience and knowledge gained from competing in the FIA World Rally Championship. The i30 N is a product of all this and more, and it represents the pinnacle of Hyundai’s driving passion.
Performance with safety
