Fans of Hyundai are in for an exciting time as the car maker is getting ready to launch their first performance focused vehicle that is road legal and this is the Hyundai i30 N. The sporting hatchback is going to provide performance that is insane and it is going to take on the Ford Focus RS along with the Subaru WRX STi.
Now there is some good news as we have been given confirmation that the Hyundai i30 is going to arrive in the US, but the vehicle is going to have a different name. It is going to come with the name of the Elantra GT.
At the moment we don’t have any idea as to what engines are going to be offered to the US market, but we have heard that it is the same engine that the Veloster offers.
The only drawback to this is that Hyundai hasn’t confirmed the top of the range N trim for its arrival in the US. Everything does point to the arrival of it in the US, as the US is well-known for its performance market, so there is great sales prospect for it.
We are expecting Hyundai to clarify the state of the Elantra N when they launch the i30 N over at the Paris Motor Show, which takes place next week.
