The new Hyundai i30 N Teased - Gets sporty design and DCT

Hyundai has released a few teaser images of its new i30 N hot hatchback which will be launched soon in Europe. Here are a few highlights of this new Hyundai i30 N gathered from these images.

The new Hyundai i30N will have a dynamic design, focusing on performance and emotion. It features new and aggressive front and rear bumpers along with two large exhaust pipes. New LED headlamps and tail lamps also are visible along with the wider front grille. The images also show newly-developed 19-inch forged alloy wheels, which are lighter than those of the previous i30 N, contributing to weight reduction in the car.

The interior layout is expected to be largely similar to the regular i30 hatchback with certain N-specific detailing and changes. Features and specifications are also expected to remain the same except for the inclusion of sportier seats and drive modes.

Hyundai has also revealed that the new i30 will be available with the company’s eight-speed dual clutch (N DCT), including dedicated N performance shifting functions. This transmission will be paired to the same 2.0L turbo petrol engine producing 250bhp as standard and 275bhp with the performance pack. This engine also produces 353NM torque as standard with power sent to the front wheels through an Electronic Limited Slip Differential.

The new i30 N is likely to be launched in Europe in the coming weeks with a marginal price increase over its predecessor. Stay tuned for further details on Hyundai's new hot hatchback.

       Global New Car Assessment Programme (Global NCAP) have now revealed the crash test results of three more best selling cars, under its Safer Cars for India initiative. The entry-level variant of each was chosen for the crash test.

        Global NCAP crash tests cars at a speed of 64kmph, which is 8kmph higher than the stipulated test speed under Indian safety norms. The Indian safety norms were upgraded in October 2019, and is now at par with, and ahead in some areas, in terms of safety norms, compared to markets like USA and Brazil.

    the cars were tested only for frontal crash protection.

    November 2020 crash tests:

    • Maruti Suzuki S-presso  : Adult : 0 stars.  Child :  2 stars

    • Hyundai Grand i10 Nios : Adult : 2 stars.  Child : 2 stars

    • Kia Seltos                          : Adult : 3 stars.  Child : 2 stars

     

    Maruti Suzuki S-presso:

    The S-Presso got an appalling zero star for adult occupant protection and two stars for child occupant protection. The S-Presso offers only driver airbag as standard. The body structure was rated as unstable along with the footwell area. Child occupant protection was poor with the poor performance of the restraint systems. The S-presso does not offer 3-point belts in all positions as standard and has no ISOFIX Child Restraint Systems (CRS).

     

    Hyundai Grand i10 Nios:

    The Grand i10 Nios achieved a disappointing two stars for adult occupant protection and two stars for child occupant protection. The Grand i10 Nios offers dual airbags and pretensioner equipped seatbelts for front passengers as standard. Its structure and the footwell area were rated as unstable. 

    Child occupant protection showed poor results due to the absence of ISOFIX Child Restraint Systems. The Grand i10 Nios does not offer standard 3-point belts in all seating positions and does not offer standard ISOFIX anchorages.

     

    Kia Seltos:

    The Biggest disappointment is that the best selling Kia Seltos Crossover SUV achieved only three stars for adult occupant protection and two stars for child occupant protection. The Seltos offers dual front airbags and pretensioner seatbelts as standard. Its structure was rated as a borderline case unstable and the footwell area too was rated as unstable. Child occupant protection showed poor results mainly because of the absence of ISOFIX Child Restraint Systems. The car does not offer standard 3 point belts in all seating positions and has no ISOFIX anchorages standard.

    The USA and Australian spec Kia Seltos had scored a full 5 star rating at the USNCAP and ANCAP tests respectively.

     

    Domestic Manufacturers such as Tata Motors and Mahindra secured a full five-star rating for models including the Mahindra XUV300, Tata Altroz and Tata Nexon while the Mahindra Marazzo, Tata Tiago and Tata Tigor scored four-star ratings earlier this year.

    These stark contrasts show the double standards of global manufacturers of Maruti Suzuki, Hyundai and Kia towards Indian consumers.

    We recommend consumers to choose safer cars and drive safe.

    Airbags are not a substitute for seatbelts, passengers must always wear seatbelts.


    The Tata Altroz premium hatchback soon will get 1.2 turbo-petrol engine option and a new 7 Speed Dry DCT automatic gearbox options in India. Only the top-spec variant will get this automatic option. As per the several media source the DCT equipped Altroz will deliver better performance due to low kerb weight(1058kg).

    Tata Motors new premium hatchback, the Altroz has successfully established itself among Indian car buyers since it's launch. The standard Altroz is available with either a 1.2L Revotron Naturally aspirated 3 cylinder petrol or a 1.5L Revotorq 4 cylinder turbo diesel engine. The 86PS petrol engine is fine for

          Though there won't be significant cosmetic changes on the Turbo petrol variants except for the “Turbo” badge at the rear, the higher trim levels are expected to receive some new features such as 60:40 split-folding rear seats and connected car tech.
