In an interview with Australia’s caradvice.com.au earlier this week, Hyundai Australia Senior Product Manager Andrew Tuitahi said only the 202 kW Performance version of the i30 N would be offered with the self-shifter, but that it would study the possibilities of branching out.
At the same time, Hyundai Australia Communications Head Bill Thomas told the online platform that it makes no sense to offer the standard 184 kW i30 N with the manual ‘box once the dual-clutch becomes available, given the local market’s preference for automatics over manuals.
So far, it remains unknown if the i30 N would become available in South Africa, but expect it to arrive later this year or in early 2019 if given the green light.
Pls bring i30N to south africa we love it it in pictures and reviews
I would definitely buy the i30n over a got anytime. Please don't disappoint me Hyundai by not bringing it to SA
Have always owned a Hyundai, please bring to SA. Hyundai is a reputed brand but needs a boost with its performance vehicles. Can be priced reasonably as with the Tuscon and Creta
If this comes to South Africa, I'm getting rid of my car and I'm buying it!
I own an i20 and haven't been disappointed and I know from the reviews that the i30 N will not disappoint. I fell in love with it as soon as I saw it and will buy it in a heartbeat. The sound, the drive, the handling and the design... Damn please bring it to South Africa
I want that car for real, please bring it to South Africa...
Yes. We need this in SA. Naturally,the price should be right.
