Blistering performance taken to the next level.
Since the premiere of the award- winning i30 N, we’ve been working hard to make a great thing even better. Driven by lessons learned in our highly successful i30 N TCR race package and motivated by feedback from our enthusiast community – major performance enhancements include: the introduction of a wet-type 8-speed dual clutch transmission (N DCT) with paddle shifters, increased power & torque for the Performance Pack, and lightweight forged alloy wheels.
Now you can choose from two transmissions
When it comes to making fast, smooth and efficient shifts, you have two performance enhancing choices. The standard smooth-shifting 6-speed close-ratio manual or the all-new quick-shifting wet-type 8-speed dual clutch transmission (N DCT), which also lets you select gears manually with the shift lever or the steering wheel mounted paddle shifters for more race car feeling in everyday life.
Perfect for enthusiast drivers who love to operate a crisp shifter and a tight clutch, the ball-type gearshift also features a blue stripe and the N-badge.
The all-new N DCT
Available for the first time: a wet-type 8-speed dual clutch transmission with paddle shifters and new N performance functions for an even sportier experience.
Nth Degree Performance
Born on the track – the blistering performance of the i30 N is powered by a newly developed 2.0T-GDi turbocharged engine.
2.0 T-GDi (280PS) petrol engine
The 2.0 T-GDI engine now delivers 280 PS and a substantial increase in flat power for more torque and power at lower RPMs. This ensures high responsiveness, improved acceleration and much more fun. Choose from a 6-speed manual transmission or a wet-type eight-speed dual clutch transmission with paddle shifters for more control and faster shifts. Max. torque: 392 Nm. Top speed: 155 mph.
Even more fun to drive: the N DCT - Featuring lighting fast shifts and excellent power transmission, the new N DCT delivers excellent acceleration, taking you from 50-75 mph in 5.6 seconds
N Grin Shift – push for max Sure to bring a grin to your face – unleash full N performance for 20 seconds with a single button. Enjoy max. torque and acceleration, max. exhaust sound and a push feel when upshifting.
N Power Shift - Enhanced driving thrills with “push feel” when upshifting. Engages at acceleration with more than 90 percent throttle, mitigating any reduction in torque by using upshifts to deliver maximum power to the wheels.
N Track Sense Shift - Senses how you're driving and activates when it knows you're driving on a track. It then selects the right gear for optimal performance so you can focus on steering – just like a professional race car driver.
Lightweight components for better performance
The weight saved through the new 19" forged alloy wheels results in better performance and handling for a more agile driving experience.
Launch control helps to accelerate i30 N in the quickest time from a standstill. By regulating the amount of available torque sent to the front wheels, wheel spin is minimised.
Hit the steering wheel button to enjoy fast, smooth downshifts. Rev-matching automatically blips the throttle on downshifts to synchronize the rotational speeds of the engine and transmission, optimising braking performance.
