MAXIMUM driving pleasure in an accessible high-performance package.
That was @hyundailife sole purpose in developing its latest hot coupe, the i30 Fastback N.
The secret to this stylish offering is the letter 'N', used to namecheck the two pillars of the car's development - Namyang and the Nurburgring.
Designed in Korea and exhaustively tested on the legendary German racing circuit, even the shape of the N is meant to symbolise a chicane, that part of the track where the car has maximum traction, precision and feeling.
The #i30Fastback N is actually unique in its area of the new car market in that it is the first fiery five-door coupe.
It follows on from the successful i30 N hatchback launched early last year and, not to put too fine a point on it, is an absolute cracker.
With a four-cylinder 2.0-litre T-GDI turbo petrol engine delivering 275ps and 378Nm of torque - with overboost function - it can blast from 0-62mph in 6.1 seconds.
But impressive acceleration figures only tell a small part of the story - the Fastback's handling is a revelation, its formidable cornering ability aided by its electronic limited slip differential.
