Hyundai is committed to the hot hatch with plentiful stock of its i30 N hot hatch available in Australia. 

A running update sees the brand also add a no-cost 'Comfort Pack' to the mix for dual-clutch automatic-equipped Premium variants with sunroof, which replaces the Alcantara leather N bucket seats with power-adjust suede/leather N Sports seats from the i30 Sedan N with memory for the driver. 

Pricing is unchanged, with the i30 N hatch starting at $46,200 for a manual ($3000 more for the eight-speed auto) and the Premium $49,200, all before on-road costs. The Comfort Pack costs the same as the $53,700 N Premium auto with sunroof. 

Hyundai has confirmed to CarsGuide that there are currently 387 examples of the i30 N hatch on the ground in Australia ready for customer delivery. An additional 352 units are on the way to Australia, either in-production or currently on ships. 

The additional stock should ease wait times for Hyundai’s popular Honda Civic Type R and Volkswagen Golf GTI rival.

Like its smaller i20 N cousin, the i30 N hatch has previously been plagued by extended delivery times of up to two years, though now the pressure appears to be easing. 

In the first quarter of 2024 Hyundai managed to sell 280 i30 N hatches (not including sedans), accounting for 6.8 per cent of local sales.
