Hyundai is working on its upcoming hot hatchback i30N. The South Korean multinational automotive manufacturer has been spied in development last March 15 in Arjeplog, Sweden. Hyundai is carefully testing its upcoming hatchback in a frozen lake with WRC driver Thierry Neuville at the controls.

Spy shots revealed Hyundai i30N technical specs, and it was confirmed that the i30N delivers an excellent stability in the slippery testing conditions. The most anticipated vehicle comes with good stability and excellent performance and handling in tricky road conditions, according to Top Gear.

Hyundai claims the i30 N will deliver perfect racing car levels of performance. The Neuville's testing has confirmed it. The WRC driver said that it was his pleasure to be testing the newest Hyundai hatchback. Neuville mentioned that the designers and engineers had done a stunning job on the engine, gearbox and in the differential. The future vehicle offers performance similar to the racing car.

Hyundai Motorsport confirmed that the camouflage car is the latest Hyundai i30N. The next Hyundai car has more aggressive body kit with large alloy wheels. The automaker revealed that the Hyundai i30N is inspired with a high-performance hatchback RN30 that was showcased at 2016 Paris Motor Show, as per Auto Express

Hyundai is aiming to launch the hatchback performance sub-brand in the same market sector as the Peugeot 308 GTI, Volkswagen Golf GTI, and Ford Focus ST. The supercar will use the concept of 2.0-litre turbocharged engine developing 375bhp that delivers an output of 300 bhp.

The 2017 Hyundai i30N offer numerous improvements more over than its predecessors. Many reports speculated that the i30N would come with a faster, stiffer engine and transmission mounts, more precise gearshift, a strengthened and stiffened chassis with an electronic limited-slip variance. The South Korean automaker aims that the 2017 Hyundai i30N will begin a whole new line of supercar models. The Hyundai i30N release date will be later this year.
