Hyundai i30 N Project C was presented at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September 2019. We received the test in summer 2020 together with the Hyundai i30 Fastback N. What are the differences in reality?

Let’s go to the numbers first. Overall, the i30 Project C is 50 kg lighter. The chassis is 6 mm lower. Unfortunately, the power stays at 25hp and the drag coefficient is still the same, but it doesn’t matter. But the driving characteristics are better.

Thanks to the lower chassis, the Project C is very tough even in Eco mode. In N mode, the car is almost as tough as a motorcycle. I feel every bump in the seat, but I don’t lose touch with the road. Fastback N can be used every day in Eco mode and in N mode the vehicle is tougher, but let’s get back to Project C. The steering is stiffer and more accurate. Almost the same as in a go-kart. The brakes are more powerful and respond much faster to actuation. Thanks to all of this, Project C behaves much better in corners and on the racetrack. The reactions from the steering wheel to the wheels are faster and thanks to the strong brakes I can brake later. The larger chassis guarantees much better stability and faster cornering.

The Hyundai i30 N Project C is not a daily driving car. Because of the chassis, it’s uncomfortable and you can feel bumps. I recommend this vehicle for weekend trips, tours or for a novice racing driver.

The Hyundai i30 Fastback N is a vehicle that is suitable for every day. The steering is comfortable for normal driving and the chassis is more comfortable. In N mode, the start of the performance is aggressive, the steering is stiff and the chassis is tough, but it is still usable on a normal road.
