Hyundai i30N: Launched in Malaysia in Nov 2019, have you seen any on the road?

Yesterday we posted that the Hyundai i30N has overtaken the BMW M135i to become Europe’s third most popular performance hatchback, trailing behind the Mercedes-AMG A35 and Volkswagen Golf GTI.That’s an amazing feat considering that this is only Hyundai’s first attempt at this end of the market.Clearly Hyundai hired the right person to head its N Division – the former head of BMW M, Albert Biermann. In just his first attempt, Biermann has already created a better product t

Hyundai i30N:2019年11月在马来西亚发售,你在路上见过几辆?

之前我们报道了Hyundai i30N已经超过BMW M135i,成为欧洲第三大高性能掀背车,仅次于Mercedes-AMG A35和Volkswagen Golf GTI。这是个惊人的成绩,毕竟这只是Hyundai对进入这个细分市场的第一次尝试而已。显然Hyundai为它的N部门找到了合适的负责人——前BMW M部门的总监,Albert Biermann。仅仅是第一次尝试,Biermann就打造出了一个更好的产品,赢得了比前雇主BMW更多的粉丝。请记住,i30N只有6速手排可选,即使是在欧洲,这也大大限制了它的吸引力。不过这也意味着,对于那一小部分了解并关注汽车驾驶体验的人,i30N显然是不二之选。此外,8速双离合的自排型号也正在开发之中,并计划于2021年加入到系列之中。而在我们这边,情况却大不相同。Hyundai i30N于2019年11月正式发售,限量20辆,且只能通过Lazada订购。遗憾的是,到现在它们也只卖出了两辆。人们对这款车的关注度很高,但由于各种原因,销量却仍旧惨淡。惨淡的销售额并不是因为产品本身有问题,i30N的定价很有竞争力,并且也有满足
