The premiere teaser for Hyundai RN30 came out almost a week ago. The RN 30 concept is inspired from the third-gen i30 yet it comes with an array of updated hardware for creating a full fledges hot hatch. The RN30 sports a notably aggressive body combined with a front beefy bumper that hosts huge air vents and an eminent splitter. The car’s rear is equally spectacular and features a prominent spoiler mounted to the roof for aiding the downforce at the back axle along with an enormous diffuser.
The Hyundai RN30 is supported by lightweight 19 inch wheels made of alloy alongside adopting an extremely rigid suspension system. The system makes the prototype appear as it’s glued to the road. The RN30 is 30 mm wider, courtesy to the back fenders and muscular front, when compared to the current i30 road going model. The RN30’s rear feature the electronic variable exhaust system’ dual ceramic portion. The system ensures the gush of aural pleasure when one hits the accelerator.
The Hyundai RN30 runs on a four cylindered turbocharged 2.0 litre engine that churns out 380 hp and 451 Nm or 332 lb-ft of torque. The power is delivered to the prototype via a dual clutch gearbox. Contrary to the latest i30, RN30 is an all wheel drive and adopts a limited slip electronic differential for added stability while high speeding. The Hyundai RN30 makes use of high performance plastic materials instead of the carbon fiber reinforced polymer. The RN30 is 84 mm closer to the road when compared to the present i30 model. The car is also packed with several aerodynamics for improved airflow, which in turn would boost performance. The company also plans on launching the latest i30 N version early in 2017.
