The 2025 Hyundai i30 Hatch N has been leaked ahead of an imminent reveal.

    Spotted on the Hyundai Czechia YouTube channel, glimpses of the updated hot hatch flashed up in a video detailing the European arm’s manufacturing report from the Czechia plant.

    Much like the revised European-built i30 Hatch range destined for Australia in the coming months, the visual changes for the hi-po N version are likewise rather subtle.

    The quick shot of a grey example on the production line has revealed only some mild exterior changes, namely more red accents in the front intakes and along more aggressive side skirts. The grille insert appears revised too.

    Unfortunately the rear end barely features in the clip, and there’s no look at the interior. But if the standard i30 Hatch range is anything to go by, we can expect a slightly revised rear bumper treatment – though we’ll have to wait and see.

    As for the interior, it’s expected the i30 Hatch N will follow the standard range in offering the option of a 10.25-inch digital instrument cluster seen in the i30 Sedan (Elantra), an updated infotainment system supporting over the air (OTA) software updates, as well as updated interior trims.

    LED lighting has also been rolled out inside and out to the core i30 Hatch range, joined by new USB-C ports and an enhanced suite of Hyundai Smartsense driver assistance technologies – including the semi-autonomous Highway Driving Assist 1.5 which combines adaptive cruise and lane centring functions.

    It’s unclear whether the i30 N will also offer new paint colours and wheel designs like the wider range. The vehicle in the video appears to be finished in the currently available Shadow Grey with 19-inch forged alloys – though the rims are painted black instead of the current graphite finish.

    The updated 2025 Hyundai i30 Hatch range will be sourced exclusively from the Korean brand’s Czechia plant, having previously imported core models from Korea and go-fast N versions from Europe.

    It’s understood that the standard range will be subject to price increases due to the change of factory, given Australia’s 5.0 per cent tariff on European vehicle imports. New 48V mild-hybrid powertrains for the core range and increased specification levels are also expected to contribute to price adjustments.

    Hyundai Europe has announced it’s discontinuing the i20 N and i30 N hot hatchbacks as it transitions to an entirely zero-emissions lineup by 2035 – though will continue to produce the performance models for export to markets like Australia.
