Hyundai i30 N passes Arctic Circle test

As part of its final development programme, the high-performance model Hyundai i30 N has been tested on a frozen lake in temperatures as low as minus 30°C at Arjeplog, Sweden, by FIA World Rally Championship driver Thierry Neuville.

Engineers at Hyundai Motor Europe's Technical Center conducted the winter test on the edge of the Arctic Circle, focusing on the i30 N's performance and handling characteristics, adjusting the set-up to ensure it will be a performance vehicle for everyone. The team worked with Neuville to develop and tune the i30 N's dynamic systems, and to test the Electronic Stability Control (ESC), Limited Slip Differential (LSD), as well as the steering, dampers, suspension and tyres.
