Under the hood lies the same 2.0-liter turbocharged four which now matches the Veloster N’s output of 275 horsepower. Torque, however, is quite a bit higher at 289 lb-ft of torque instead of the Veloster N’s 260 lb-ft. For the i30 N, this is a 5 hp and 29 lb-ft gain over the pre-facelift versions. We’d very much like to see that torque boost here. Just saying, Hyundai. Two transmissions are on offer: the familiar six-speed manual or the fast-shifting eight-speed dual-clutch the Veloster N just got.
UK pricing is quite a bit higher compared to the US. The i30 N hatch and fastback begin at £33,745 and £34,495, respectively. That’s about $40,900 for the hatch and $41,800 for the fastback at current exchange rates. To compare, the Veloster N starts at $32,250.
