It looks like the 2021 Hyundai i30 N is going to be a potent blend of sensational looks and hardcore performance, thanks to some new styling updates and an eight-speed N DCT gearbox.

Hyundai had revealed the updated 2020 i30 models for the European market in February this year and now, what you see in front of you is the range-topping, tarmac-scorching i30 N performance derivative that is set to arrive as a 2021 model. Though these are just the official teasers that Hyundai has released, they still give us a good look at all the crucial styling updates.

Starting with the front, the new i30 N looks really aggressive, thanks to a new bumper design that features a honeycomb mesh pattern and a red pin-striped lower lip. The radiator grille is new as well, with a three-point fin pattern. The new LED headlamps get a distinct 'horizontal-V' DRL layout, much like the regular i30. The side profile looks strong, thanks to new 19-inch 10-spoke forged alloy wheels and the red-painted brake callipers.

At the back, new part-LED taillamps, a refreshed bumper design with honeycomb inserts and a bolder-looking diffuser housing two big, round exhaust tips round off the visual changes.

No details about the 2021 i30 N's mechanicals have been released yet, although Hyundai has confirmed that it will arrive with the marque's high-spec eight-speed N DCT automatic gearbox, with 'dedicated N performance shifting functions'. This will be a first for any Euro-spec Hyundai model. The DCT gearbox might be offered alongside the existing six-speed manual. As for the engine, expect the current 2.0-litre motor to be carried over. In the current i30 N, it develops 271bhp and 378Nm (with the Performance Package).
