Changed my mind, this is the best thing I've driven this year.
I've long pitted Hyundai i30 N against Honda Civic Type R in the best-hot-hatch stakes. After three weeks of N exposure (long story) my bottom-mounted g-metre and nutrient-limited brain have together decided the Hyundai is more fun.
To be fair, I'd still pick the Civic. Reliability, resale value, livability, genuine pace, and those crazy looks are all big green ticks for me. But I can't help but love the silly underdog and it's less serious demeanor, undercover looks, and neighbourhood-alienating exhaust bang. #hyundai #i30n #i30fastbackn
