Hyundai will be unveiling the RN30 concept at the upcoming 2016 Motor Show. Ahead of its showcase event the company has released the teaser images for the vehicle. The concept reportedly previews the N performance version of the new i30 hatchback. The new concept will look different from its regular models, much like its other N-badged models.
As seen in images, the Hyundai RN30 concept will sport LED-ringed foglamps on the aggressively designed bumper, headlamps with quad-unit LED arrangement and a bonnet vent for better engine cooling. The vehicle is designed and developed at Hyundai Motor Europe Technical Centre, Hyundai’s High Performance Vehicle Division and Hyundai Motorsport is just a part of the design study that might find way into the company’s i30N performance car which is likely to launch next year.
Under the hood, the upcoming i30N is expected to be powered by a 2.0-litre engine which might generate about 260bhp of power. The vehicle will be offered as a five-door version only and the vehicle will compete against the likes of the Volkswagen Golf GTI, Ford Focus ST and Peugeot 308 GTi. For complete control, the electronically controlled mechanical limited slip differential will control wheelspin and offer better traction in corners. Additional details about the vehicle will be known in the coming months.
