Hyundai i30 N 2023: Drive N Limited Edition priced from $53k, only 180 allocated for Australia


The special edition i30 N will only be available in very limited numbers here in Australia, but gains extra collectibility flair

Hyundai has announced pricing for its i30 N Drive N Limited Edition that’ll be available in hatch form only. 

Pricing starts from $53,200 before on-road costs for the manual variant, while the dual-clutch automatic transmission costs $3000 more at $56,200. 

That means this limited-edition model will cost $4000 more than a Hyundai i30 N Premium hatch and $3000 over the larger i30 sedan N

The Hyundai i30 N Drive N Limited Edition will have just 180 units available

The Hyundai i30 N competes with other hot hatches such as the outgoing Ford Focus ST, the Volkswagen Golf GTI and even the Toyota GR Yaris.

What is this i30 N Drive N edition all about?

The Drive N special edition of the i30 N hatch will have a limited production of just 800 units globally, with 180 of those destined for Australian shores. 

The Drive N is based specifically on the i30 N Premium with sunroof and features an array of aesthetic changes. 

Highlights include bronze wheels, decals and a build plaque inside

The biggest additions to the car include new bronze badges, side decal stickers and 19-inch bronze alloy wheels, while inside the Drive N has a unique alcantara interior along with red accents throughout and bright red N buttons on the steering wheel. 

Also added on for the limited edition variant are red seat belts, red stitching throughout the cabin and Drive N-exclusive floor mats. 

Each Drive N car delivered in Australia will have a plaque fitted with the car’s unique build number displayed clearly for the driver. 

Seats get red stitching as well as red seat belts!

Two colours are available for the new Drive N, a phantom black pearl or serenity white pearl.

No tweaks have been made to the performance or handling of the i30 N Drive N edition. The Drive N’s 2.0-litre turbocharged petrol four-cylinder engine will have identical outputs to a standard i30 N – 206kW/392Nm.
