Hyundai plans to debut its new electronic limited-slip differential on the performance i30. A quad exhaust, not the dual-exhaust setup we’ve seen on previous test mules
, will be fitted to the i30 N. Additional appearance upgrades include new aero elements which include side skirts, special wheels and a trunk-mounted spoiler. These upgrades will also apparently be available on normal i30 models as part of an optional appearance package. As for the car’s availability in the US, that wasn’t discussed in the presentation apparently. Hot hatches are becoming a big deal in the US. Hyundai seems to recognize this. The new Elantra GT has a Sport trim with 201 hp
. The South Koreans could have kept things boring but decided to have the new hatch’s performance match its looks.
