The facelifted 2024 Hyundai i30 Sedan N has arrived in Australian showrooms, priced from $52,000 plus on-road costs – $1800 more than the model it replaces.

Mirroring updates to the regular i30 Sedan range, the revised N flagship gains a refreshed design and new technology and safety features, but no more power and torque from its carry-over 2.0-litre engine.

Visual updates include restyled front and rear bumpers, black aluminium badges replacing silver and chrome, and new 19-inch forged alloy wheels – which are already offered on the i30 N hatch, and are said to be lighter than the machined and black two-tone wheels previously fitted.

Inside there is now a black Hyundai badge on the steering wheel, plus a larger wireless phone charging pad, and additional USB-C ports (one front, two rear).

Also added is traffic-sign recognition technology shared with other Hyundai cars, which provides visual and audio warnings when the vehicle crosses the speed limit it has detected.

However Australian-market models appear to miss out on adaptive cruise control technology added in South Korea, as well as a 360-degree camera, Blind-Spot View Monitor side cameras, and two extra airbags in the rear doors, all of which are new for the facelift.

The N Light sports bucket front seats available in South Korea – with Alcantara and leather trim – continue to be exclusive to overseas markets, as Australian models retain less aggressively-bolstered, leather-trimmed sports front seats.

Bluelink – connected-car technology, which allows for remote unlocking and vehicle tracking from a smartphone app, among other features – is also new for 2024.

Mechanical revisions under the skin include tweaked adaptive suspension tuning, a reinforced engine mount membrane claimed to provide “reduced after shake and improved agility”, reinforcement on select suspension bushings, and a “rear suspension S/ABS insulator changed from rubber to urethane on rear support for improved damping and [steering] response.”

There are also air ducts in the front bumpers to improve brake cooling, while the steering’s hardware and software elements have been upgraded, and Hyundai claims “braking performance and fade resistance is … enhanced” with revised stability-control software, and a thermal protector added the front brake hose.

There are no changes to the 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine, which retains its outputs of 206kW and 392Nm, sent to the front wheels through a six-speed manual or eight-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission.

The 2024 Hyundai i30 Sedan N is available in Australia now.
