The Hyundai i30 N (PD) is a four-door sport hatchback. It is based on the Hyundai i30 hatchback that was released in 2016. It has a 2.0 litre inline-4 engine designated "Theta" that produces 274bhp and 260lb ft at 6000rpm. This model is claimed to reach 62mph in 6.1 seconds and top out at 155mph (limited). It is the first ever (and so far only) Hyundai to be released under the "N Performance" subbrand directed by Albert Biermann, formely from BMW's M Division.
Although its data was added into the game in the Fifth Anniversary Update, the Hyundai i30 N was only released during the Halloween Update as a high-end Class D Elite Car with the following rank statistics:
- Starting rank: 890
- This was changed to 1020 in the Showdown Update.
- MAX rank: 1194 (+304)
- This was changed to 1212 (+192) in the Showdown Update.
- MAX+PRO rank: 1370 (+176)
- This was changed to 1343 (+131) in the Showdown Update.
- 0808 Elite Tuning rank: 1378 (+8)
- This was changed to 1386 (+43) in the Showdown Update.
- Tuning Kit bonus: +60
- This was changed to +50 in the Showdown Update.
- Stock to MAX+PRO rank difference: 480
- This was changed to 322 in the Showdown Update.
- Upgrade rank percentages: 15/25/15/45
- Nitro Efficiency: 7/11/14
The Hyundai i30 N has a maximum total speed of 236.3 mph/380.5 km/h at MAX+PRO with Tuning Kit and 0808 Elite Tuning, making it the fastest Class D car in terms of total speed, beating long-time record holder Mazda RX-8 (with 234.9 mph/378.2 km/h) and excluding the deleted Despicable Me "Villain Wheels". As of the 2019 Halloween Update, the i30 N reaches 220mph due to balance changes from the Showdown Update. However, its acceleration has improved slightly.
The Hyundai i30 N's slower acceleration might make it slower than the RX-8, but the Halloween Update nerfed the RX-8's acceleration, thus allowing the i30 N to dominate over it on almost every track, especially tracks with many long straights such as Tokyo.
The i30 N's moderate acceleration, coupled with its restrictive usability as an Elite Car, makes it unsuitable for Multiplayer races compared to the Donkervoort D8 GTO, Porsche 959, or Ariel Atom V8. However this car no longer has Elite status, making it a very good D-class TLE car.
The i30 N was also part of the 33rd and 34th Multiplayer Seasons, Spring Fling 3 and Joyride respectively, as a Champion League reward. Players who already had the i30 N would win a Class A Free Upgrade instead. Some players however got both the i30 N and the free Class A upgrade.
Tune-ups cost 1,500 and take 1h 20 min to finish. The Sixth Anniversary Update removed the car's Elite status.
As of the 2019 Spring Update, upgrades cost 736,000 while Pro Kits require 245,600, 40 of each Class D Part, 50 Early & Initial Techs each, and 40 i4 Engines.
