There are 5 driving modes to choose from namely Eco, Normal, Sport, N and N custom which alters the i30 N’s attitude through its ESC, E-LSD, steering sensitivity, exhaust note and auto rev matching. The rev matching feature can also be adjusted to increase engine revs to suit driver’s preference. It’ll also get launch control as standard.

The I30 N also has an over boost function that adds torque and acceleration by 6-8 percent for about 18 seconds at full throttle. This sensation is enhanced through its variable exhaust valve which amplifies the overall sound of the hot hatch at full chat.
