Hyundai’s first performance model, the i30 N has been awarded Best Hot Hatch at the UK Car of the Year Awards 2018. The category win means that Hyundai’s much-lauded hatchback will now compete for the overall UK Car of the Year award, which will be announced at the end of February.
The UK Car of the Year Awards, now in its 5th year, are independent and designed to both highlight and advise on the best new cars on the market. All corners of the UK are represented and the judging panel comprises some of the most respected names in motoring journalism. This year, the UK Car of the Year judges praised Hyundai i30 N’s bold entry to the segment as well as its style, specification and fun-to-drive character.
Judge, Olivia Gauch says: “I love everything about it – the distinctive looks, the high-specced cabin and of course how much fun can be had behind the wheel.”
The i30 N is available in two specifications, i30 N and i30 N Performance. Both models continue with the i30’s already extensive list of standard equipment, whilst adding N specific interior and exterior equipment as well performance modifications.
