◾Enhancing the i30 family wîth a third member and adding a high-performance model to provide maximum driving enjoyment for everyone
◾Hyundai Motor's N brings together motorsport experience and high-performance road car development, wîth Thierry Neuville testing the car in Sweden

March 15, 2017 – Hyundai Motor is carrying out winter testing on its first high-performance model: the i30 N. Due to be launched across Europe in the second half of 2017, the i30 N will be the third member of the i30 family, following the launch of the five-door version in January and the i30 Wagon at the Geneva Motor Show in March. Hyundai Motor's first N model will bring together motorsport experience and high-performance road car development, creating maximum driving enjoyment on the road and on the track in an accessible high-performance car package.

During the recent winter testing in Sweden, Thierry Neuville, World Rally Championship driver of Hyundai Motorsport, tested the car on a frozen lake to get a feeling for its performance and to provide feedback to the engineers in order to further enhance the development process. His driving experience and feedback were captured on video, now released for enthusiasts to see.

'So many people have been lòòking forward to this car, so it's a pleasure for me to be testing it,' said Thierry Neuville. 'The engineers have done a great job on the gearbox and the differential. There is good traction and good stability in the slippery testing conditions. And it's very easy to handle. A normal driver should get a sensation similar to that of a racing car.'

Hyundai Motor is undergoing winter testing in Arjeplog, Sweden to develop and tune the car's dynamic systems. The Electronic Stability Control, the Limited Slip Differential, the §teering, shock absorbers, suspension and tyres are all being tested under extreme weather conditions, wîth temperatures as low as minus 30 degrees Celsius.

Alexander Eichler, Head of High-Performance Vehicle Test and Development at Hyundai Motor Europe's Technical Centre, outlined the objective for the i30 N as follows: 'The main target for us is to ensure driving enjoyment. Symbolising a chicane, the 'N' logo embodies this aspect - an agile vehicle that is fun to drive.'
